The moment Sandra Coudray stumbled upon a photo of Jasmine, a visually impaired chimera-like feline, on the Association Adoption Feline Facebook page, she was instantly smitten. Initially skittish and underfed, Jasmine has come a long way to trust people, all thanks to a little love and compassion. Today, this captivating calico feline thrives on affection and has formed an unbreakable bond with her human mom, Coudray.
“Adopting her was an immediate decision, especially because she was blind. I had previous experience living with a cat who lost sight due to old age,” Coudray revealed to LoveMeow. “The last time I traveled to Normandy to visit family, I left Jasmine with my brother. She spent most of the day, every day, waiting for me on my bed. We are now inseparable; she fills our lives with immense joy and love.”
Jasmine, who was initially found disoriented and frightened on the streets of France, has come a long way since her difficult days as a stray.
Upon discovering her picture on Facebook, Coudray was instantly captivated. “She won my heart right then and there,” she recalled.
“The caregiving family informed me that she was visually impaired, but in my eyes, she is as precious as any sighted cat,” Coudray added.
While poor nutrition might be the root cause of her visual impairment, Jasmine was initially hesitant to trust humans and other animals.
However, things have changed drastically for the better. Nowadays, Jasmine not only enjoys cuddles and affection but is also extremely devoted to her human mom, Coudray.
“The last trip I took to visit family in Normandy, I entrusted her to my brother’s care,” said Coudray.
Eagerly awaiting Coudray’s return, Jasmine spent her days lounging on her bed. “She has become an indispensable part of our lives, and the happiness and love she provides are invaluable,” Coudray concluded.
