Hope, the cat with no eyes, has found a happy home after being rescued from the Ikea parking lot.

The 16 week old kitten was found abandoned in the Ikea parking lot in December by the Burlington Humane Society along with her mother and sister Charity and Joy.

"This sweet 4 month old kitten suffers from Microphthalmia, which literally means 'small eye'. Hope was born with two very tiny non-functional eyes and is completely blind," the shelter wrote. They shared photos of Hope on Facebook. "She definitely caught the hearts of a lot of people," Janet Cappus, the adoption counsellor said. "She’s incredibly intelligent and can find her way around."

Meet Hope. She can't see, but she doesn't let it stop her.

"She's the most playful kitten… anything with a spring or a ball, if she could hear it, she was playing with it. She would run all around the room," she added.

Hope's mother and sister got adopted together, but she was still waiting for her forever home due to her special needs.

Then on Thursday, she found her match. "Her new (dad) says she's already found her favorite spot on the couch," Cappus said.
