    Found a blind kitten

    My husband and I were in San Antonio this weekend for the San Antonio Heat Wave and Trifecta event since we compete with the car in car audio pretty seriously.
    We were staying at a Days Inn in downtown. Sunday morning we were going to walk to the Dennys for breakfast. Turned the corner and found a black fuzz ball on the ground, huddled up against the hotel on the sidewalk next to the street. Bent down and found that she couldn't see.
    Natually, being a cat person (already had 4 at home), I started balling.
    We took her to she show, got some kitten food, etc. Monday morning, back here in Dallas, we went to the vets office before ever getting home. Come to find out, she has a herpies virus that was passed on from the mother durring pregnancy and will be mostly blind (might be able to see shade and light).
    She's the sweetest kitten I've ever seen. Vet said she's 5 weeks old...maybe.
    You can just touch her with the tip of your finger and she immediately starts purring.
    We've been keeping her in the bath tub in the guest room when we're not home. The other cats aren't real sure yet, but that's been the case every time we've introduced a new kitten to the house. She can find her way to the litter box in the bath tub and to the food and water with little trouble.
    She's perked up quite a bit since we found her. Responded extremely well to the ear mite meds, eye meds, and the deworming we had done at the vet Monday morning.
    All-in-all, she's bounced back 100%.
    I'm trying to think of a name for her. I want something that tells a story about her...in a single word. 'Lucky' is just too...normal.
    Our other cats: Daytona, Charger, Cuda, and Sugar (yes, we like Mopar as well as Dubs). Any ideas?

    We're kinda thinking Echo.

    Some other suggestions we've heard: Ray, Sonar, Radar, etc.

    Congrats. Its a nice looking cat, and always good to see someone help out strays.

    Our second cat was a stray that on halloween night just through our frontdoor and we couldnt find it for a couple days. It was eating though because the food was going quicker than normal. But we kept her and called her pumpkin. Had 2 litters of cats and until a year ago we still had one of those kittens. Mountain lions seem to make good snacks of our cats...


    Anyways, I think Ray would be a good name.

    awww poor thing. Glad to see people like you.

    How about purblind, eh kinda sounds like a band name. I like all those names, Ray kinda suits her best. They have two things in common, just have to teach her how to play piano. Echo is cute too.

    Wow you are impressing me
    So they are still humans on this planet.

    If this kitten was a male it could have name like Dare Devil but due to the other cats having something with cars...why not Vette or some derivate name from this car ?
    Old blind 67 corvettes, you know like this one.
