Helen the Acrobatic Kitten

When I sit in the kitchen, Helen has taken to climbing up on the kitchen table so she can be near me. Note I said climb. She doesn't jump up on things like most cats do. Her lack of eyes keeps her from judging how high to jump. Instead, she climbs. Several times now, she has decided to climb even higher and has perched herself on the back of one of the kitchen chairs where she swings and climbs like an acrobat. It is very entertaining and very cute.


We found Helen at the end of August, 2009. She was a feral cat in our town and had managed to survive two months on her own even though she is completely blind. For some reason, this kitten lacks any eyeballs at all, but that hasn't stopped her from living life to the fullest!
