Blind Cat Called Carrot Is Looking For Her Forever Home
When she was just two months old, little Carrot was found on the streets of the Czech capital by a kind bystander who took her to her nearest vets.
Carrot was found to have a nasty inflammation of the eyes and vets worked to do everything they could to relieve her pain.
Despite intensive treatment and consultations with multiple specialists, Carrot's eyes would not heal. The little kitten's inflammations kept coming back and she was in constant pain.
In the end, there was no other choice than to put Carrot out of her misery by removing both of her eyes.
After her surgery, Carrot was taken into care by Handipet Rescue, an animal shelter specialising in the care of sick, disabled, abused or abandoned cats and dogs, based an hour north of Prague in Kadlin.
Here, she was looked after by the home's owner, Jaq, and her staff, where she has been ever since.

Now, at five months old, Carrot's surgery wounds are fully healed. While the brave little cat can now only recognise light and shadows, she is free from the intense daily pain she experienced before.
Handipet Rescue are now calling for cat lovers to adopt little Carrot.
Writing on Facebook, they ask that potential owners "kindly not to be put off because she is blind," adding "Carrot soon finds her way around by using her ears and her nose. It's really not very different to having a cat that can see, just ask anyone who has had the good luck to be 'owned' by a blind kitty."
They add: "Carrot knows exactly where her litterbox is, where you are and most importantly, where her food is."
Speaking about Carrot's personality, Jaq tells PRETTY 52: "She is adorable, everybody loves her. She's playful, cuddly, comes to her name and purrs like a train."
Jaq adds that Carrot is "the same as any other kitten" adding: "She can do anything other cats can do once she has worked out her space.
"Obviously she would have to be an indoor cat, the outside world would be far too dangerous for her. But, she could have an outside enclosure."
Despite being based in Prague, the charity are welcoming adopters from all over the world.
Carrot has been fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, FIV/FeLV negative, and Advocate treated. There's also an adoption fee of 1500 CZK (£52) as standard.
