Hi, I just rescued 2 5 week old kittens and one is blind! I think she isn't totally blind, but she is at least 90% blind. They are both going to the vet tommorow to be looked over and checked out, have tests done. Well, I am just a bit concerned about raising her. She is starting to recognize my voice, so when i call her name she turns her head and starts to walk to me. I try to also get her to follow vibrations by thumping my fingers on the ground whenI call her name. Her name is Snowball, and she is SOOOOO cute!

Well, she eats really well, I just started them on KMR 2nd Step mixed with Whiskas Cat Milk and water. She is not as playful as Sugar, her sister, but I expect that is due to her bad vision. She does sometimes play with Sugar, but she is very easily frightened if picked up, or surprised. Are there any tips or advice for raising a blind kitten? Will her sister help her learn things? Snowball hasn't yet peed or pooped in her box, in fact she tries to eat the litter! Sugar pees in it, but I haven't seen her poop and I havent found her poop.

Well, any suggestions will be super appreciated. Thanks so much!
