Life with a Blind Kitten – Stevie’s Story

Hello everyone!  A few months ago, I wrote a blog post about how many pets I have (How Many Pets Does a Veterinarian Have?).   Well I have an addition to my household, and here’s the scoop on my newest edition….

Early in September, 3 college age ladies brought a tiny 1 pound kitten to My Zoo Animal Hospital.  They found the little kitten under a bush near their apartment complex.   The kitten clearly had a problem with her eyes, and the ladies were concerned that some sort of trauma had occurred to injure the kitten’s eyes.   They named her Stevie (after Stevie Wonder).  Since she’s a girl kitten, I tend to think her as named after Stevie Nicks now.  The kind-hearted young women decided to bring this little kitten in for an exam and her first vaccinations even though their apartment didn’t allow pets.
