A TRIO of kittens have received a new home after all three were adopted by a cat-lover.

Molly, Dolly, and Polly, who have only two eyes between them, were brought into Cats Protection’s Atherton and Wigan Branch when they were eight weeks old.

After assessment, it was clear there was significant damage to the kittens’ eyes, believed to be caused by an untreated infection, and surgery was necessary.

Molly and Polly both only have one eye, however, Dolly needed both eyes removed.

Despite a troubling start to life, all three siblings have now found a new home thanks to Su Taylor from Hindley, who was looking to adopt a new cat following the loss of her two pets.

Su said: "I had just lost Horrie, who was 17, and before that I had Bitty for 20 years, and I was devastated. I hated coming home to silence.

"I didn’t really have a particular idea of what sort of cat I wanted except for it being an indoor one as I have a busy road outside.

"I’ve never had a cat with special needs before and I’ll admit I was dubious as I wasn’t sure I’d be able to provide them with what they needed.

"But Lorna Harris at the Warrington Adoption Centre has a blind cat and offered lots of helpful advice on taking care of them.

"I have ended up with three beautiful, loving, mad cats who make me smile every day."

Here's a video of the kittens playing: 

The cat-lover announced she has also renamed the kittens with distinctive monikers.

She added: "Polly is now Blink and, due to some nasal damage, I now live with someone who snuffles and sounds like she has a really bad cold; she definitely can’t sneak up on anyone.

"I’ve named Molly TLC, after the band’s Lisa ‘Left Eye’, and Dolly became Team – as there’s no I in team.

"Despite having no eyes, Team is absolutely fearless and is living her best life, quite often jumping around when a toy isn’t even there.”

Branch Coordinator and fosterer Diane Leather said: "After a rocky start to life, these three really showed us how resilient kittens can be.

"With medication and much TLC, they recovered to become lovely, playful girls with their own personalities. I was amazed at how Dolly adapted to life with no sight.

"Once they were strong enough, we transferred them to Warrington Adoption Centre for rehoming. It’s rare that someone would take on three cats and we were concerned how Dolly would manage without at least one of her sisters as she was very close to them.

"So, we were delighted to learn someone had fallen in love with all three and offered them a home where they could stay together; it’s been amazing to hear how well they’ve settled in."
