Woman Adopts Cat and Comes Back to Shelter for His Blind Brother


A woman from Georgia adopted a near-blind cat and went back to the shelter when she found out that he has a brother who was also born special.

Lola Ayers went to the shelter about a year ago, looking for a new cat. She met a kitty named Humphrey who was born with a congenital condition called Microphthalmia, in which the eyes are abnormally small.

Humphrey has very poor sight but is extremely adaptable and uses his other heightened senses to help him navigate and do things just like any other cat.

“I knew that Humphrey was the one when I first saw him. The way he interacted with me compared to the other cats I’d seen at the shelter, he was immediately attached to me,” Lola told

While she was asking about Humphrey, she noticed another cat who also had an eye abnormality. She filled out the paperwork and went home with her newly adopted cat.
