Velma is 15 years old and almost totally blind. She and her sister were turned into a police station after their owner passed away.

They brought the two sisters to a rescue group where they were given a roof over their heads while waiting every day for someone to take them home.

"They found a safe place to land with a mainly dog rescue, but that's no place for a blind kitty," Karyn Poplin of Kitty Adventure Rescue League & Sanctuary shares with Love Meow.

Soon her seeing sister was adopted, but Velma just kept waiting for hers to come.

She was somehow overlooked.

Velma doesn't see much and holds her head down all the time, but as soon as she knows someone is there to keep her company, her love and affection will come pouring out.

After months of waiting and hoping, Velma slowly accepted her fate. The dog rescue group had begun to seek help, hoping someone special could give this sweet gal a home she so deserves.

They contacted Karyn, who runs a cat sanctuary in Fort Worth, Texas along with her husband for special needs, disabled, elderly and otherwise 'unadoptable' cats.

The couple knew they had to save her. When they finally met the blind kitty she immediately filled their hearts with love and snuggles.

"Once she knows someone is there and wants her attention she starts up the meowing and purring," Karyn told Love Meow.

"After some waiting and transport issues... Velma finally came to live with us at the end of September."

"She doesn't see much... but she's quite talkative and loves stomping around the bed if you set her up there."

Velma is enjoying her new life with her loving humans and cuddly feline friends.

She constantly demands attention, head scratches and love, and couldn't be happier to have found a place to call home.
