“Blind” stray cat covered in mange is rescued – surprises everyone when he finally opens his eyes

Cotton’s story is one of the most special rescue stories we’ve come across so far. Carmen Weinberg, the founder of Animal Friends Project Inc. took
to social media to recount the amazing story of a cat named Cotton.

Carmen met Cotton after he was brought to her facility in Royal Palm Beach, Florida back in September of 2016.

The man who brought Cotton in said that he had appeared out of nowhere and started eating from a bowl the man was trying to feed to his own cat. It was clear to him that Cotton was extremely hungry and in need of help.

“I went to pick Cotton up on Sept. 13 and took him directly to he vet,” Carmen recounted. “Cotton had a severe case of mange and was very dehydrated, anemic and very skinny.”

It did not take long for Carmen to notice that Cotton was extremely friendly.

“He started purring when the vet examined him,” she said.

Carmen was stunned when Cotton finally opened his eyes and she saw what color they were!

“We thought he was blind, and that he would be blind forever,” she recalled. “The vet thought that even when his eyes recovered they might be damaged, but they weren’t. It was such a wonderful surprise. His eyes were just beautiful.”

Carmen could not bear to give up Cotton, so she adopted him!

“We got so many applications for him due to his looks, but in the end, I saw how attached to me he had become,” she said. “I didn’t have the heart to put him through another big change. He had already been through so much.”
