Meet Jack Tripper, the kitten that was born without eyes. Although he was born with a disability, Jack was also very lucky. So what made him so lucky?
7. Other Cats
Thankfully, Jack grew up around a lot of other cats and was used to the sounds and smells of being around a lot of people and animals. At the barn where he was born everybody absolutely loved him. However, everyone also worried about who would adopt a blind cat.
The people at the barn were worried about Jack and didn’t want to just send him off to anyone either. Then one day, a woman by the name of Amy received an email from a friend that read, “Do you still want one of the kittens? There’s one here with no eyes and no one can take him.”
5. Couldn’t Resist
Amy couldn’t resist and she knew that she would love the young kitten immediately. As soon as she met him she gave him the name Jack Tripper as she is an avid fan of old TV sitcoms. “I’m a huge fan of old TV shows and thought Jack Tripper was a good name for a kitten who couldn’t see,” Amy wrote.
“When we first brought him home Jack stayed mostly in my room. He walked cautiously around, sniffing everything.” However, all of that quickly changed as Jack got more and more comfortable inside of his new home.
3. No Issues
“After about a day he had no issues running around, jumping onto my bed and climbing on everything. It wasn’t long before he mastered the rest of the house, either,” Amy wrote. Amy absolutely adores Jack and she is so happy that she decided to adopt him.
2. An Inspiration
“Jack is truly an inspiration. I’ve owned a lot of kittens in my life, but Jack is the happiest, most playful of them all. He doesn’t feel sorry for himself. Heck, for all he knows, all cats are just like him.”
