Aubrey was born without most of her brain undeveloped(hydronencephaly). Although her eyes were perfect, she could not see since there was no brain to interpret information. As a small kitten, she was petrified of everything and was not expected to live. A loving shelter director rescued her and gave her a knit teddy bear as a companion. My wife and I adopted her at 4 months and she has been a miracle cat! She is now almost 6 years old, gets along with our 6 other special needs cats, and lovingly carries her Teddy around the house each day!
