Two kittens showed up in one lady’s backyard in Casula, a suburb in Sydney, Australia with their stray mom. The lady just couldn’t turn her back on them, so she started feeding them. However, she soon noticed that there was something unusual about their eyes – they were still shut though the twins were already about 3 weeks old – they were blind… The lady wanted to care for them badly but she was in a difficult financial situation. Luckily, Inner City Strays rescue group agreed to take them in.
“The moment we laid eyes on their photos our hearts sank and we said yes, we just knew we had to take the twins immediately,” Diana Dammery, the cofounder of Inner City Strays and one of the group’s foster carers, told Bored Panda. “We didn’t care how much they were going to cost us, we just couldn’t turn our backs on them.” The kittens, named Stevie and Isaac, had to go through surgeries to avoid infection. Stevie is completely blind but Isaac can see with one eye, though his eyelids are troublesome and he still has more surgery to undergo.
“Stevie relies on Isaac incredibly,” Dammery explains. “If he gets disorientated or is unsure, he cries and Isaac comes running. He never cries if Isaac is near. They’re the best of friends. They are fit and healthy, robust kittens doing everything kittens do, playing, chasing toys, rumbling with each other and getting up to mischief!” Once the twins fully recover, they’ll be put up for adoption.
