Ciega the marbled Bengal domestic cat

Ciega is a marbled domestic Bengal cat. She was born in 2004 and arrived at TWS in 2006.  We received a call from a rescue group that could not take her into their program because she wasn’t using the litter box and was actually surrendered by her owner because of this problem.  Many hybrid cats are surrendered for this reason.

When we arrived to pick up Ciega, we noticed immediately that she was born without any eyes. Even with this unusual situation, Ciega demands to be treated just like all the other cats.  She climbs all over her bungalow without any problems and loves to rub on her caretakers from on top of a perch in the bungalow. She is amazing to see and a resilient little girl. Ciega and the other cats all are given enrichment objects several times a week to give them new objects and keep them active.  Sometimes we use spices or perfumes and spray objects inside the bungalows so the cats can sniff out the new scent.

You can help provide daily care for Ciega by sponsoring her today.  Your help will be greatly appreciated.
