Teen Girl Praised For Caring For Blind Cat With Cosmic Eyes Like Two Moons

This blind cat with two huge eyes like twin moons has amazed owners by living life to the full, moving around the house and garden despite his disability.

Pico, who is nine years old, was diagnosed with bilateral glaucoma five years ago, when his eyes were bright green.

His teenage owner, Monica, told Newsflash that as he slowly lost his sight, his eyes began to change colour, acquiring a cosmic hue, with many people comparing them to two moons.


And Pico has also won an army of online followers, who are amazed at his determination to continue living a full life, even if he no longer ventures too far from home.

Monica, 17, who lives with Pico in Canada said she and her family adopted him after he was in a car accident, and now, when not carefully exploring, his favourite pastime is sleeping.

She said: “He sleeps all day in my room, and he also loves to eat soft food, he is very picky on his food, it can’t be any sort of meat flavour, it either has to be tuna or fish.”

She added with a laugh that if it isn’t either of those, he won’t eat it.

She said: “He also loves to have treats once in a while, he is obsessed when I brush him, he loves when I brush his under chin, and lastly, he loves attention, if no one is there, he will cry, so I always pet him and give him cuddles so that he is happy.”

Monica has been praised for caring for the disabled cat, but said it was really a two-way relationship: “Those who do not love animals are the people who have never experienced an animal’s love.

“If they have that one time when they can see or feel an animal’s love and appreciation towards them, they would change their minds on that perspective, everyone should love animals.”

Having a disabled cat is a challenging task, keeping obstacles out of his way, and he needs daily medicine including eyedrops.

But she added: “Apart from that, I love to take care of him, he is the most loving cat out there, and he follows me everywhere I go in the house.

“It’s cute and I love him so much that I would never replace him!”

She said that she makes sure she stays with him in the garden, but one time when she was distracted and forgot he was there, she went back to find he had vanished.

In a panic, friends and family joined in the search, but there was no sign of him. However, strangers then turned up and told them there was a cat in a neighbouring garden and asked if it was the one they were looking for.

The strangers were house hunting at the time and went on to purchase the property for sale, becoming Pico’s and Monica’s new neighbours.

She said: “The couple bought the house because of Pico, he was like a messenger who made us meet them and greet them, and they sensed a good vibe.”
