Lee451: When I volunteered at the local SPCA, a feral cat as brougt n; he had been blind since birth but somehow lived about a year in a feral colony. No ne could figure out how he survived unless other cats brought him food. He could at least see shadows but it was assumed he was too sight-impaired to hunt for himself. He was adopted.
Weatherkiss: Came here for Li'l Bruddah, leaving disappointed.

MadSkillz: Some of these animals look a bit horrific.I wonder if they are happy ...
vinniethepoo: My namesake, Vincent, is a native Filipino-breed dog who grew up on the streets. When he was still a puppy some asshole thought it would be fun to shoot him with a high-powered pellet rifle. The pellet became lodged in Vincent's spine (which later grew around the pellet) pincging his nerves and paralyzing his hind legs. He can actually move them a bit, but he has no control.To top things off, while crawling around on the street he ended up getting hit by a car. No serious damage, thank God, just cuts and scrapes. Thet did end up getting infected though.Long story short: my wife and some other ladies rescued him, got him to a good veterinarian, we adopted him, and now he's my dog! He even has a wheelchair like #1's.
Anastacya: As Ive posted before, my blind basset hound nearly died about two years ago when two infected glands on her abdomen ruptured. I carried her into the vet, blood all over my shirt, begging them to save my dog. They did. A few months after that her right eye succumbed to glaucoma; now both are removed. She is blind and has a nasty scar on her belly, but damnit, she is my babygirl. She moves around and has as much love for life, if not more, than before she lost her eyesight. She is my hero, and people who think that I should've put her down, when she was bleeding from the ruptures can kiss my grits.
teamollie: Yogimus:Boy good thing you kept her suffering to prevent yourself pain. You are a sweetheart.+1
Cormee: My cat's vet explained it wonderfully once, she said "cats are too busy being cats to let disabilities get to them"
RobSeace: The fainting goats and fainting cats don't really have any actual disabilities... In the case of the goats, they just naturally freeze up and fall over when freaked out... In the case of the cats, I imagine they're just doing the standard cat "plot down in front of the human forcing them to stop and pet me" move...Also, this looks like a new wharrgarbl image:[s3-ec.buzzfed.com image 625x459]
dickfreckle: Was just reading TFA with my GF and she pointed out what you've said (she's far more sciency than I).
RobSeace: Lucky, even...
