Snowshoe from <a href='' title='Burbank, CA'>Burbank, CA</a>


About Me

Active within 2614 Days

Hi! My name is Frankie

I am a Snowshoe from Burbank, CA

Nicknames: Uncle El Ray

Age: 12 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: I have overcome being blinded by surgery and am living a nearly normal Cat life full of fun filled playful days.

My favorite tricks and treats are: I was completely blinded after an eye surgery snafu. It was very tough and took a few months of re-training, but I have regained my confidence and am able to chase my owner around the yard, I play outside all day and can catch any bug I even caught a birdie until my owner saw me and rescued it, shucks! I just wanted to play. and I like any Kitty Treat.

Where I hang out: I love to curl up in my owner's arm under the blankets. I have a favorite chair with my favorite blanket too.

My favorite grubs: I love fresh fish and dry food. I lick all the juice off wet food when I get it. Sometimes I'll even eat it too giggle...

My pet peeves: I don't like to get my lower back rubbed. Sometimes I get moody and don't like the other Cat around me so I will get vocal about it.

What I love about my owners: Don't get me wrong, I so love my 1st owner and am very grateful & happy that they took such good care of me through everything. But things got really difficult for her and she lost just about everything so, her dear sweet friend adopted me!!! I live with a bunny "Ally" and I get so much attention now that it's unbelieveable!!- !

My cat hobbies: I love to play alot. I also like to snuggle up and give kisses to my owner.

Pet motto: I may be Blind, but I know you're there!

How We Met

I was a feral Cat that had glaucoma in one eye. I was caught, dropped off at an Animal Hospital and left there until I was going to be put down. My owner found this out, took me home to see if I would be a good companion for her female Cat Miss Sally, which well let's just say I haven't been but we get along ok.

Hi' there ,this is your neighbor from Burbank.
How is your weekend ? We sure didn't get much rain like they said we would have . I just read your story how you lost sight of your good eye. ,It really touch my heart. Can I ask you what street that vet is on. You don't have to tell the person name. Just the street. I have a good vet . Well, anyway that I like. Mom, says that has been her vet since 1989. And she would never go anywhere else. They are all nice. And the vet even treats mom like family.
Again I am so sorry about your eyes. You still are a beautiful baby. And you are special in your mama's heart. Leaving you a vote with purrs and kisses. Sammy=<..>=

Come visit me, Miss Maggie & Sammy.

My Mom is so hurt by your story. She just can't believe someone would do that and not take responsibility for it. Mom and I both hope that you are doing much better and pray that the people responsible will pay one way or another. Thank you for telling your story. Bear.

Come visit me, Bear.

Hi Everyone! This is Frankie and here is my story
Well you know I had the one bad eye and the Dr. said it had to come out, I had PERFECT vision in the other eye, was assured that I would not miss the bad eye and would have a great normal life. My Mommy was very worried the day of the surgery, she says something just didn't feel right - and boy was she correct. My Mommy asked that a certain nurse not be a part of the surgery and this person was still used. After I came out my good eye was very dialated and the Dr. said it would go away in about a day to a week. Well it never did. Apparently I kept waking up during surgery so the nurse apparently kept cranking up the sleeping gas until she FINALLY realized that there was a leak in the valve. YIKES...After a week the Dr. said she thought something may have gone wrong and I would be completely blinded for life. The nurse blamed the Dr., the Dr. says it may have been almost anything and we'll never know...No matter what, no responsibility was ever really taken for this. The bill came Mommy and I were shocked it was for alot. Mommy was crying cuz she didn't have any money... so the Dr. dropped the bill to 1/2. This was good, what was bad is,
Mommy worked for this Vet and they didn't show proper compassion or respect at times which was hurtful and hard for her. I needed a babysitter for a few months while she worked and our lives were turned upside down, but we are working on it!
Well Mom sold some things and paid the bill and we have moved on. I wish there was legal help for these thngs but animals don't have real rights.. My Mommy is so cool - she has loved me since day one and has done so much for me since all of this has happened -her selfless sacrifices have been a blessing for me. No-one wanted me because my bad eye was sort of ugly, but she saw past that and knew what a great boy I was on the inside!!! I LOVE HER SO MUCH! She does anything and everything for me and I pay her back with all of my snuggly love and kisses. She has tried so hard to give me a normal Kitty Life. We play in the yard together everyday, I chase her around so people think I can see until Mommy tells them I'm blind. Well now you know my story. I sure hope you have a GREAT DAY! and keep in touch - I am hungry so Mommy is giving me some fresh Tuna - YUMMY!!!! Cya later, Frankie!

Come visit me, Frankie & Miss Sally Cat.

Hey Frankie!!! How's CA? Here in NY we have some snow now. I'm not a fan of it one bit. My Dad made me go outside in it once and I just came straight back in. Are you blind in both eye? Looking forward to seeing more photos, Bear.

Come visit me, Bear.
