As a cat parent to 7 cats, I can assure you that being a cat paw-rent is a lifetime commitment, and not an easy task. Sin embargo, ser el padre de un gato a un gatito discapacitado o gatitos es aún más difícil; that’s a role that needs to be taken seriously.
Most People avoid adopting disabled kittens thinking that they cannot do it, and Nicole from the video below was once one of them. However, something deep inside her told her to adopt these two disabled kittens, even though she was doubting herself.
«The first day when I brought them home, I honestly thought I couldn’t do it.”
When she rescued and brought home these beautiful ginger boys, they were around four weeks old and their eyes were badly infected. I’d say that these two boys were very lucky, because their owner was heartbroken and decided to fight for them.
The furry boys are called George and Hamilton and they have proved that they don’t need vision to have a happy life. La mayoría de los gatos ciegos se adaptan muy bien a la pérdida de visión, gracias por sus sentidos Remarkables.
So, just like any other kittens, George and Hammy were playful, curious, and always on their exploring mission. During playtimes, su propietario incluso notó que podían moverse fácilmente por su entorno.
«Their demeanor was incredible. You would never know that they were blind.”
Despite their blindness, they were playful and knew how to escape their playpen. Ellos subirían a la cima del árbol del gato, e incluso encontraron una manera de Bajar con éxito.
It’s Sweet that they would Climb down their Cat Tree backwards and they would even produce short squeaky sounds as though they were letting everyone know they’re coming down.
Nicole dijo: «tenía miedo de que iban a lastimarse. Obviously I was wrong ‘ Cause they’re so smart.”
The most adorable thing is the connection between these two brothers. Les encanta estar en compañía del otro, e incluso han encontrado una manera de encontrarse.
«They do this cute little chirping meow to find each other. I call it echo locating.”

Unfortunately, these two fur babies couldn’t have proper surgery when they first came to Nicole because they were too small. Later, they managed to have a total of three surgeries, which helped them grow and get healthier.
Even today, these two brothers are inseparable, despite having different personalities. Nicole says that Hammy has a heart of gold and that he is very friendly.
“He wants to be friends with anyone that walks in this house. When we bring new fosters in, he’s immediately their best friend.”
Seeing that there are people who give chances to disabled kittens and want to make their lives easier and better, really makes me happy, and i’m sure I’m not the only one.
The luckiest person here is actually Nicole because she succeeded in her mission and provided these two furry boys with a beautiful life. From doubting herself to being unable to imagine her life without George and Hammy. Ella puso todos sus sentimientos en una oración:
George and Hammy might be blind but their spirit isn’t lacking for sure. Therefore, I’m sure that they’re being taken good care of, thanks to their owner Nicole, and that all of them will continue changing each others’s lives and making them even better.
