Meet Sandy (and Zeus)

Add to favourites

Sandy and her brother Zeus came to the BC SPCA as young kittens, sick and very underweight, after being rescued from a hoarding situation. It’s been a long road of recovery for the pair after such a tough start to life but they are finally ready to find their fur-ever family. We are looking for a special home that will adopt the loving and playful siblings together and absolutely spoil them.
When they came to the shelter Sandy and Zeus were suffering from severely damaged, painful, and inflamed eyes due to an untreated upper respiratory virus that caused ulcers. Sandy has one healthy eye and one permanently damaged eye that was luckily saved with medical treatment and loving care. She doesn’t have full vision in her right eye but it doesn’t bother her and the vision impairment doesn’t slow her down. This sweet, young girl is very playful and will zoom around after her toys or playing with her brother. She has lots of energy and is full of curiosity. When she isn’t playing then she’ll happily get all the pets she can get and is a big purr machine. Such loving young cats will make great additions to a home. Because of Sandy and Zeus’ loss of vision they must be kept as strictly indoor only cats since it would not be safe for them outside. An apartment would be preferred. It is also recommended they be the only cats in the home as they may carry the upper respiratory virus with them for life which is contagious to other cats. A home that isn’t too busy and loud may be best as with Sandy’s brother, Zeus, being pretty much completely blind a loud home could be a bit overwhelming for him. Introductions to new animals like dogs would need to be very slow as the duo has not met any before.
Sandy and Zeus have a huge amount of love to share with their new family and hope to find their happily ever after. Could it be with you? Due to their blindness we are looking for a one level apartment where there is less risk of them getting out as they like to dart out of doors!
