Cats with Down syndrome find their forever home

In the bustling city of New York, where everything moves at lightning speed, there is a heartwarming story about two very special cats who found their forever home. These cats, with their unique features and needs, faced many challenges, but their journey ultimately led them to a place of love and acceptance.

It all started when a pair of kittens were found huddled together outside on the street in Brooklyn. They were cold, frightened, and wouldn’t move. Thankfully, neighbors who spotted them contacted Infinite Hope Animal Rescue for help. With the assistance of a TNR (trap-neuter-return) rescuer, the kittens were brought to safety.

It wasn’t until the vet examined them that they realized their faces looked different. The vet diagnosed them with a chromosomal abnormality, a feline version of Down syndrome. The orange kitten also had a condition called entropion, where the eyelid rolls inward against the eye. Despite these challenges, they were playful and affectionate, and constantly clung to each other for comfort and reassurance.

Michelle, who wasn’t planning on adopting a new cat at the time, unexpectedly found herself with these two special kittens in her home. Despite the challenges they faced, Michelle and her family fell in love with the kittens and knew they were meant to be a part of their family. The kittens, now named Lucky and Lucy, quickly settled in and began receiving the love and care they needed.

Although Lucky and Lucy may look different from other cats, they are no less deserving of love and attention. Michelle and her family understand this and make sure that they never go a day without hugs and kisses. Lucky and Lucy have brought so much joy and happiness to their family, and their story has inspired many others to adopt pets with special needs.

Their story also sheds light on the importance of animal rescue organizations, like Infinite Hope Animal Rescue, and the incredible work they do to save animals in need. It takes a village to give these animals a second chance at life, and their journey shows that with love and support, anything is possible.

Lucky and Lucy’s story is a reminder that beauty is not just skin deep. It’s the kindness, compassion, and love that we show to those around us that truly makes a difference. And in the case of Lucky and Lucy, that love and kindness changed their lives forever.
