Rescuer Discovers Her “Soul Cat” After Discovering Ollie, a Blind Kitten, in a Bear Den
Rescuers saved Ollie and his two siblings from a bear den on a wild animal sanctuary in 2018. Sanctuary staff had waited for the mother cat to return, but sadly, she never came back. Then, Jen Koscheka, who worked at the sanctuary, fell in love with him right from the start. Today, she considers Ollie her “soul cat.”
This cat is oozing with charisma and charm, a great spokescat for adopting cats with special needs. It can be a life-changing rewarding experience and these cats pay back every kindness with so much unconditional love.
“Here is sweet Ollie at about 3 weeks old. [He] and his siblings were found in a bear den (!!!) at a Wild Animal Sanctuary! Ollie’s left eye never even developed, and the vet confirmed the congenital defect in his right about a week after this pic,” states the cat’s Instagram.
ortunately, Jen and her partner Justin decided they would adopt Ollie right away. Even better, they decided to foster his siblings too.
“We took them in, and bottle-fed them and got them veterinary care… and of course, pretty much knew day one Ollie was going to stay with us forever!!
“Oh, hi! It’s #throwbackthursday and here’s me as a wee kitten!! I was a little bottle baby and was already full of smiles!!”
He Has Always Been an Adventurer
Ever since going home with Jen, Ollie has been a little adventurer who has always loved cuddling. Today, he sleeps between his humans each night and enjoys being cozy and snuggly.
“Throwback to tiny Blind Ollie! He’s always been an adventurer…here he is pretending to voyage in a yellow submarine!! (Shhh… no one tell him it’s grey!).”
