Lets Chat About Cats - Episode 59 Featuring Lorna Harris with Stevie The Blind Cat, Gabi and Cali

Lorna Harris comes from Manchester and adopted her 2 cats Stevie and Gabi when they were just baby kittens. They had come into the rescue shelter she was working at with their mother but had bad eye infections. 

Stevie due to the infection lost both his eyes and his sister Gabi lost one. They were bonded and she decided she could not split them and so they both found a forever home with Lorna. After some time Gabi enjoyed her freedom and Lorna felt that Stevie may thrive with the addition of a friend so she started to look for another blind cat to add to the family.

Through an organisation who help rehome animals who come from terrible situations she found Cali who was a little blind girl and was in Egypt. She was able to bring her home through the assistance of the organisation and so Cali completed the family.

Lorna had previously suffered from depression and anxiety issues and cats have always played a big part in her life with the healing and coping of the difficult times she faced. After being stuck in a job she hated she decided she wanted more from life and so started to work in animal rescue and has done ever since. Through this she has helped others as well as finding her perfect furry family.

Lorna explains the trauma Cali suffered and how she still has some problems with her behaviour now and how she copes with it. This episode gives some insight into the patience required to help animals adjust, especially when their background stories are not always known.

Stevie copes so well with his blindness and is so beautiful! You will fall in love!

Happy Listening!
