Blind Kitties Need a Home

Ming and Mang - not sure which this one is - came to the Humane Society of Broward County shelter at 4 weeks of age. Cherie Wachter, spokesperson, says that "a good Samaritan who found them...could no longer care for them. The Siamese-mix sisters were born without eyes, but their outgoing personalities (and will to eat) touched everyone in the clinic.

"The decision was made to find a temporary foster home and that is where six-year veteran foster volunteer Marsha Alf of Hollywood came in. Having fostered 157 other kittens, Marsha was up to the challenge of helping the sightless kittens. She was innovative in that she put their food on a mat with a different texture, so they knew when they were approaching their food bowls, and has provided the duo with lots of TLC." The kittens will be available for adoption after spaying next week.

The shelter is at 2070 Griffin Rd., just west of I-95, in Dania Beach. Fees are $70 for felines, $85 for dogs, $95 for puppies. That covers spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, 14-day health care plan, ID tattoo, and deworming.
