The burgeoning overpopulation of cats and kittens has left a wake of sick, injured, pregnant, abused and handicapped felines in its path. Each day, the AHS takes in these unfortunate victims and does the very best to care for them in the best possible way. Our vigorous adoption program has not satisfied the numbers of cats that come through our doors.
When a Keyport resident saw numerous stray kittens near her home, she was especially concerned for a kitten that appeared to have an eye problem or could possibly be blind. The resident trapped them and contacted the Society's Tinton Falls Shelter for assistance with them. The young kitten was immediately brought to the Garden State Veterinary Specialists in Tinton Falls where they discovered that she was born with no eyes.
This sightless sweetie purrrs loudly when stroked or held. The chances of survival for her ... or any of her littermates were doubtful with all of the dangers inherent in living outdoors. We call her Doppler .... and she is in need of a lifetime of love and safety. So we predict that Doppler's radar forecast should be days filled with sunshine and no grey clouds. File TF-56223-F (Tinton Falls). Please contact us if your smile could be her umbrella.
