A Beautiful Long Haired Blind Cat Lives the Good Life After Being Rescued From a Life of Neglect

Moet is a beautiful longhaired champagne-colored cat who went blind due to neglect. But neither her history nor her blindness has dampened her playful spirit. Rescued and adopted by the benevolent Dr. Emily Shotter, Moet now lives a really great life in Muscat, Oman with Emily, Luna, Lily and Cosmo. Moet is also a columnist, writing for The Daily Mews.

It’s now been more than a year since I was in my “forever home”. My mum is just the best and loves me lots (I think maybe I’m her favourite, which annoys sisfurs and brofur – two of whom arrived after me – mum rescued Lily from a tiny birdcage in a horrible local market and Cosmo came from another country where he was abandoned!). We are a happy family, but sometimes I have to tease Luna to play with me. I like to play a lot. Sometimes mum says I never sit still. But I do, I like sleeping too, because there are so many nice places to curl up – my mum’s bed, three cat trees (one of which is like a real tree) and two comfy sofas. My mum also has a nice balcony, which she says she made ‘safe’ by enclosing it. We are allowed to go out whenever we like!
