Named for the Celtic goddess of horses, Epona is a sweet girl who was rescued from a horse farm. Epona is blind, though she doesn’t let this slow her down. Our vet thinks she lost her vision due to an illness as a very young kitten. She probably does not even know she is different than other cats. She is happy to run around the house with her foster siblings and loves to wrestle and play with mice and jingly toys. She especially loves to chase and carry crinkle balls! Epona is very much a lap cat, who loves to climb onto the couch with her people. Once on the couch, she gravitates to their laps where she will often belly crawl up onto their chests to give kisses (she can walk just fine– but belly crawling is more fun). She also has an excellent sense of smell, which is helpful, so she knows when it is time to beg for people food or wet food. Epona hasn’t been around dogs or small children, but she gets along with most other cats after a short adjustment period. Because she is blind, a home visit is required prior to adoption.
Epona was rescued from an unsafe situation due to her visual impairment.
