Spirit is owned by an amazing, wonderful woman who rescues cats, dogs, and virtually any creature in need from the most terrible situations you can imagine! She devotes herself tirelessly to her rescue efforts and funds the vast majority of her expenses from her own pocket. Please please please vote for this wonderful woman and her wonderful work on behalf of animals in need!

Spirit, Mom, all the kitties and the wonderful Spirit Warriors all want Spirit's dream to come true help him win and what an adventure he will have flying to be on the Ellen show.

I love, love Spirit the blind cat.  His human mommy does so much for any cat (racoon, fox) that is need of help.  She rescues, nurtures, brings them back to good health, has them spayed/neutered and finds them loving homes.  This lady deserves a special recognition for all of her hard labor.

I am 76 years old and on days when I feel down, I read of Spirit and his Mommy feeding feral cats and the kind things they do and I perk up and think how wonderful life is with people like them. Spirit and his Mom restore my faith in the human race.

I have been following Momma and Spirit's journey for some time now. They are an amazing team! Momma works tirelessly, around the clock, using her own resources and donations from her followers. Never complains, even while  dealing with her own health issues. She never turns away an animal in need. She has taken on many cats and kittens that others were quick to give up on. Right now she has a paralyzed kitty and a blind one. To see them together you would never know they were handicapped. I would love for Momma and Spirit to see their dream realized. P!ease, please vote for them so they know how much they are appreciated for the hard work to make the work a better place for animals!

I love Spirit A Blind Cat!!! Spirit and Mom has inspired me to be kind to animals, to NEVER give up, to take care of nature and the wildlife, to always find good in bad to worse scenarios, and so on and so forth. So many to mention. Spirit's Mom has continually educated all of Spirit's warriors technically about different animals especially feline families. I love them to the next galaxies and back! God bless them always and may their needs be supplied to again and again make a difference in this world. Spirit's Mom is one extraordinary woman with a very very very big heart and who is very knowledgeable.

Spirit and his human mom do remarkable work, working with feral and rescue kitties and other animals. "Mom" takes on abused, neglected, abandoned, or injured animals who blossom under her care, and as their stories are shared through social media the messages of encouragement and compassion become widely spread. For us "Spirit Warriors" who follow them, the heartwarming and informative stories provide great inspiration... I look forward to each update about the Spirit household and the feral colonies.

Spirit and his Human Mommy are so special that I call them Angels. They both go above and beyond to help homeless animals by going out in all kinds of weather to feel the homeless animals and I call them animals because it's not just only kitty's. Spirit and his Human Mom and giving so many people the inspiration to be better people and to help start TNR programs in their own neighborhoods and keep on taking care of these babies.

Spirit's mom is the greatest! She never turns her back on a cat in need no matter what it's health problems are. She goes out nightly to feed feral cat communities and if any other wild creatures appear, they also get fed. Her selfless dedication is an example to all cat lovers!

Yeah!  Spirit and all him and his mom do!  Spirit, although blind, rescued some kittens that were abandoned and his "mom" has rescued many, many more including newborns thought to not able to survive.... yet do with her help! and so many other stories of help and healing and life.  Feral kitties, abandoned kitties... hope to live again!

Spirit is an extraordinary cat who was terribly abused and blinded and who found his way to the most wonderful woman, known as Spirit's Mom who rescues and takes care of  cats in need, including abandoned cats and kittens and special needs cats. She also cares for feral cats in her town, feeding them and doing TNR. Mom's posts on FB are inspirational. Spirit and his Mom are charming and would be great guests!

Spirit A Blind Cat
October 2 at 6:19pm ·

My Dearest Friends and Spirit Warriors,
It is with the heaviest heart and the Deepest grief that I tell you that Spirit and my Rescue Kitties have been seized and taken from me -- in what can only be described as a completely blindsided raid. An EXTREMELY vindictive individual called Animal Control repeatedly, accusing me of abusing my cats. The Animal Control Officer never came inside my (unsecured) courtyard to my front door, never knocked on my door, or rang my doorbell, and never left a notice for me at my door, or communicated with me about his concerns. Nor was there ever a letter or any written correspondence sent in a manner that would ensure I would receive it. However, later I was informed that the Animal Control Officer did leave notices outside an unsecured exterior gate, in an area that is considered a "Common Area" -- where anyone has access, and someone could easily remove a note or notices.
There was a Hearing on Friday (Sept. 30), and I was told that it would be an informal process. However, it soon became apparent that the Hearing was anything but that. The City of Bryan, TX had two Prosecuting attorneys there, who represented Animal Control. I had none. Like a lamb being thrown into a den of wolves. I was thrown into an arena with absolutely no legal representation; no guidance, no awareness of legal jargon or what my rights are -- or if I even deserved to have any rights, as an American Citizen.

The City of Bryan wants me to "admit" or state that I am an Animal Abuser, in order to get Spirit and my personal cats back. I cannot tell you how devastating this is, and I cannot even process the thought of being labeled an animal abuser. I have spent my entire life in the Service of others, and Helping animals. I am Devoted to Helping those in Need, and I make so many sacrifices, with little regard to my own needs. It goes against who I am, EVERYTHING I Believe in, my own personal values & truths, and the Authenticity of Who I Am, and what I Stand for. I am NOT an abuser of animals. I have NEVER abused another living being, neither human or animal -- of ANY kind. That's just not who I am. But, that is who the City of Bryan wants me to be.

That meant nothing to the Officials involved, who seized Spirit, my 4 personal cats and fosters (11 foster cats and 3 kitten Rescues from my home). A total of 19 cats and kittens were Seized.

If you can help us find qualified, Compassionate Cat Rescue groups who would drive here and "pull" from the Shelter any of the Rescue foster cats and kittens seized from our home, PLEASE email: spiritablindcat@yahoo.com
ALL 11 Rescue's have been neutered/spayed, and FIV/FeLV negative, prior to being Seized, and all but 1 is microchipped.
The City of Bryan Animal Shelter will NOT work with transport groups -- so a Rescue would have to make arrangements to pick up the cats directly. Or, if someone would like to adopt any of our Rescue's, PLEASE PM or email us, and we can tell you who is there.  
If you can Help us with legal costs or Representation, our Paypal account is: MySpiritWarrior@yahoo.com
If you are an Attorney with a Strong history of Successfully Defending and Achieving Exceptional Results, PLEASE Contact us: spiritablindcat@yahoo.com
PLEASE Help me get Spirit and our Kitties back. PLEASE Help!!!!
<3 Spirit's Mom
