The photo sums up the vulnerability of so many kittens born outside to stray or feral cast where they so often die and at very young age. They often contract the usual upper respiratory infection which ends up damaging their eyes because they get chronic conjunctivitis (pink eye). If this condition is left untreated it can leave kittens blind. There is a Facebook page where they adopt out blind cats. These cats are shipped in from countries in the Far East. No doubt they are community cats which have become domesticated but have lost their eyesight because of a respiratory infection. It’s so sad. It needn’t happen. Ultimately it is down to people to take full responsibility for the unwanted cats anywhere in the world.
