At our resot in Barbados.We were grabbing a slice of pizza when a skinny ginger & white cat approached me I said hey little kitty,which then he jumped into my lap and latched on to my pizza and attempted to run. At this point my husband said becareful as he had a large gash down his neck and you could barley see his eyes.I said I dont care what I get he's hungry we fed him until full. At breakfast we met his worse off brother. I proceed to the front desk to ask reasons these cats were left to live like this.Mangement said oh the cats with no eyes? they dont belong to the resort. After a week of having them sleeping in our rooms, feeding them and playing we decided we could not leave them at the resort. We called the local RSPCA and had them picked up. On the plane ride home my husband turned to me and said "you do whatever it takes, you get them home to us "Thats all I needed to hear, I called the next morning to find they both had eye surgey, it turns out the both have a genetic disorder they are born without eyelids, we would be taking them home. It took a month, lots of help from the people in Barbados. They have had 1 sucessful eye surgery each and have gone from 4&5 lbs cats to 12lb fat little Americans. Almond knew his name the moment he arrived. I will never forget the day Salem realized his name he came running to me excited to be called. Everyone tells us how lucky these cats are, No we are the lucky ones they were just 2 ferels looking to be domestic house cats
