A blind cat named Keller and his mother arrived at an Iowa shelter, and now their story is unlike any they have ever encountered before.
In August 2021, on a Monday, the Sioux City Animal Center received a call about two stray tuxedo cats. It turned out they were the most closely bonded pair of cats the shelter VP had ever witnessed. A 9-12-month-old male cat appeared to have been born with no eyes, and the other is thought to be his protective mama, who is 1-2 years old.
However, the pair’s owner did not come forward after a month. By late September, the news shared the story of the amazing duo again, but now they had famous names, and another cat entered the mix.
See what happened from KCAU-TV Sioux City:
When Keller arrived, he was “very lost” and confused. Then, a day or so later, the cat presumed his mother arrived. Certainly, their extraordinary bond would indicate they were most likely mother and son.
