Reader Stories: Special Needs Cats' Stories

See Published Stories

Special needs cats are all the more special to their humans. They may have been born with special needs, contracted retroviruses such as FIV or fELv, or lost limbs through accident, cruelty, or amputation. Blind or deaf cats may have come that way at birth, through malnutrition or disease, or by other means. The one thing all special needs cats share is the fact that they can be loving, active cats, despite what we humans might call "disabilities.

Share your story and photo of your own special needs cat. Perhaps it will lead other readers to adopt a special needs cat of their own.
