Welcome back for another edition of Caturday, where we catch up on the week's latest cat news, and get to meet some of your amazing kitties! This week's cat news recap has been preempted, in order to bring you a very special Caturday guest post, all the way from Pakistan!
One of my favorite cat ladies and Twitter friends, Khizra, writes in to tell us the story of how her five beautiful cats, Laddu, Bhondu, Rano, Gabru, and Laali came to be a part of her family.
Take it away, Khiz!
LadduLaddu’s status in the house grew ten fold when he was diagnosed with Arthritis, and the treatment steroids resulted in him losing his eyesight as a side effect. My entire family decided then that he would never feel this handicap, and we made sure someone was always around him lest he bump into something or fall. But cats are naturally strong on instincts and very soon he figured out where everything was, and had memorized all the "routes" of the house down to litter tub location, and exactly where in the kitchen my mom feeds him. Today, he fools even us with his confident maneuvering inside and outside (supervised) the house. You wouldn’t know he’s blind unless we told you.

Special thanks to Khizra for taking the time to share her beloved Laddu, Bhondu, Rano, Gabru, and Laali with us! It's often said that cats "choose" us, and as if by fate, these lucky kitties all seemed to find themselves in the right place at the right time, knowing that her family's home would make the purrfect cat paradise!
It just goes to show that whether you live in Pennsylvania or Pakistan, the language of cat appreciation is universal, and I'm just thankful for the opportunity to be able to share these cat stories from across the country and around the world with you every week!
