Cat for Adoption: Lin
At the tender age of 8 months, Lin has already seen much of the world. The worst came early. Abandoned at birth, she suffered a lung infection that nearly took her life. Her rescue by ARK, though life-saving, came too late to save one of her eyes, damaged by infection. Nonetheless, Lin doesn’t seem to mind at all having only one eye. She runs and plays and tussles with other cats as all young cats do. The constant handling she received at ARK to nurse her back to health has helped make her loving and trusting of people. Lin is curious about everything and, in addition to stealing bits of dog food from her unsuspecting playmates, likes nothing more than sitting by the window looking out. A caring home can help give Lin so much more than the life outside the windowpane. Help turn her gaze to the love within.
