Born homeless and blind because of an illness, this kitten’s chances of survival were slim at best, but she was fortunate to be rescued before it was too late.
She was born with a condition called microphthalmia, a disorder which prevented her eyes from developing properly, leading to her blindness. Thankfully, the rescuers at the Burlington Humane Society found her just in time.
Caregivers soon determined that Hope, as they named the kitten, would need surgery to remove her underdeveloped eyes completely, because they were causing her discomfort.
