Jewels Incredible Journey HOME!

Jewels Incredible Journey HOME!

If you recall, we had a beautiful blind female cat name Jewels that came to our shelter earlier this year hoping for her furrever home. This is how her story began:

Jewels is a cat originally from Kuwait and was part of a mass rescue effort for cats which was spearheaded by our wonderful friends at Nine Lives Rescue in Redwood City, CA. A total of 50 cats were transported from Kuwait to Redwood City by airplane to start their journey in finding forever homes.

As a helpless stray cat in Kuwait, Jewels was an amazing momma cat taking care of four small kittens. She fought daily through difficult circumstances to take care of her little ones. It was discovered that Jewels was intentionally injured by a person throwing bleach in her face. The bleach caused major damage to her eyes which eventually led to the removal of both her eyes. Luckily, Jewels and her four babies were rescued. When Jewels arrived at Nine Lives her eyes were damaged beyond repair and needed to be removed. Jewels went through a double enucleation surgery and was placed in a loving foster home to recover and await adoption.

While visiting our rescue partner, Nine Lives, Town Cats’ Shelter Manager Danielle fell in love with Jewels and she was welcomed with loving arms to our Town Cats shelter. Jewels is a confident little cat and she quickly acclimated to our community cat room, called “The Playroom”.

We are so proud to say the Jewels has found her furrever home!

Adopters Melana and Richard from Daly City were interested in opening their hearts to a special needs cat as a companion for their senior rescue dog. As a soon-to-be registered vet tech, she felt comfortable providing a cat in need with the proper medical care and lots of love. During their video adoption appointment, they met Jewels and immediately fell in love. They were concerned whether she was okay with dogs, and luckily the foster home that Jewels was at before, had a dog and she got along great! Their house was perfect for a blind cat and reassured us that they would make sure Jewels would have a safe forever home that would meet her needs.

Two weeks after adoption and this is what Melana and Richard have to say about Jewels:
“Jewels is doing great so far she is so incredibly brave. We only had her in the bathroom for two days before she wanted to see the whole house. She has been exploring and finding different places to nap as well as begging for food haha. We bought her and a huge cat tree which she loves. I was nervous it would be too high for her but she can get to the tippy top. I usually have cat allergies but I have absolutely none with her its great! She is super sweet and we absolutely love her and are so happy she is with us in her forever home.️”

We absolutely love that what started as a sad story has now ended with a beautiful loving home for Jewels. It is just one example of how we have the ability to do so much for the neglected animals in the world. Town Cats is dedicated to recusing, protecting and advocating for our friends like Jewels. When we work together as a community the possibilities are endless, we want to thank our supporters for being part of this amazing community. We are the voice for those who can’t speak for themselves, and together we are unstoppable!
