Kismet was hit by a car and taken to Animal Services who found her  Microchip was registered to Sheltering Hands.  In May 2019 Kismet was spayed by a colony caregiver as part of our low cost spay/neuter program.  After reaching out to the caregiver it was determined she could not afford medical care for the kitty and the only other option was euthanasia.  Marion County Animal Services partnered with Sheltering Hands and agreed to surrender the kitty to Sheltering Hands to get the kitty to our vet for evaluation.

Kismet had some broken facial bones (that will heal on their own),  but the major issue was the head injury had caused her to become blind.   She has been in her foster home for under two weeks and is making amazing progress.  She is able to maneuver around the house, find the litter box, find her food bowl (beg for food when it's empty), successfully meet the other kitties and today she even found a toy and started batting it around.  She's adjusted so quickly it's easy to forget she's blind.

Kismet gets along with all the other kitties in her foster home, she is easy going and loves curling up on a lap.

Since Sheltering Hands home delivers each adopted cat, all adopters must live in the North Central Florida area.  Thank you for understanding. You can meet this wonderful kitty by appointment with an approved application.  Pre-adopt applications are available here:  www.shelteringhands.org/info/adoption   If you have additional questions you can email Sheltering Hands at adoptions@shelteringhands.org.
