Blinkin the cat has no eyes, but he has found a person that he loves to snuggle with every day. "He was born of a barn cat and taken in by me when I found him separated from his mom and siblings, across the road, soaking wet and muddy… he had gotten lost," Allison wrote via her blog. "He was only about five weeks old at the time and should have stayed with his mother but I couldn’t risk him getting hit or eaten or just lost outside." She took him in and started raising him.
"Every day he makes sure to get as close to my face as he possibly can. Maybe he just feels safer when he is in someone’s arms, but most of the time he likes to be touching me somewhere - laying in my lap, around my head, over my neck, or on my shoulder - anywhere as long as he’s close."
"I think that this has to do with him only knowing me as my voice. I have to say, though, I usually don’t mind."
Though Blinkin can’t see, he is very vocal. "If I’m the only one home, I’m usually upstairs in my room. Most mornings, when my roommate leaves, I can hear Blinkin downstairs, frantic.” She calls his name. “Thump, thump, thump I hear him run to the staircase… he runs up the staircase to the door of my room…. and runs in and snuggles up."
Blinkin has so much love for his human. "I’ve had a few cats in my day, and a couple of dogs too, but none of them could ever cheer me up like this little guy."
He always has to get as close to his human's voice as possible.
When he naps...
...he is always with the person he loves the most.
