My name is Stevie (inspired by Stevie Wonder) and I am blind. I rely on my other senses of touch, smell and sound to help me everyday.
I have been blind for what feels like a very long time but not since birth. Something happened to me, I'm not sure what it was, but I had wounds on my eyes when I was found. Not only was everything dark, but my face and head would be throbbing and hurting constantly.
I remember just hiding in corners, being terrified of loud noises like car horns in traffic and people shooing me away or the loud footsteps of humans. I didn't know what to do or where to go. I wouldn't eat or drink for days because I couldn't see anything. So I would usually just hide in a corner, waiting to die. I didn't want to live this life. There was no one to help me. No one who saw or cared about my pain.
Then, I was rescued. At first, I frantically flailed about in the cage, terrified, not knowing what was going to happen. I just couldn't endure any more pain and fear. But then...My head stopped throbbing, my wounds became smaller, when I would scratch when I could sense a human near my cage, they wouldn't hit me or scratch back! They would in fact make my pain better and my stomach full by giving me food and water!
I slowly calmed down and began to trust when humans came near my cage.
Now, 6 months down the line, I'm like Spider-Man! I rule the big cat play area, climb up on the grills super fast, love playing with toys and absolutely adore tummy rubs. Noises don't scare me anymore. Im more curious now than I am fearful. Because I know I'm safe and loved and no one can hurt me.
I'm also very friendly now with other cats and people. And I hope one person will give me a chance to sponsor me for Rs 3,340/month by messaging #047 to the Facebook inbox. Thank you 💜
