Pico the Blind Senior Kitty: A Truly Extraordinary Feline

Introducing Pico, the adorable senior boy kitty with a story that will warm your heart. Growing up in Canada, Pico has always been Monica’s beloved companion. From the moment her family gifted her this precious kitty when she was just a child, their bond has only grown stronger. Now, Monica, a young and caring lady, is dedicated to giving Pico the most incredible life, regardless of the challenges he faces.

You see, Pico suffers from a condition known as bilateral glaucoma. This condition, which developed around five years ago, has left him completely blind. Despite the loss of his sight, Monica’s love for him remains unwavering and she is determined to ensure his happiness until his very last moments.

It was through an article in the New York Post that Pico caught my attention. Intrigued by his unique story, I reached out to Monica, who graciously agreed to share more about their extraordinary journey together.

So, without further ado, let’s all get acquainted with the remarkable Pico!

How did Pico become a part of your life?
At the tender age of nine, I pleaded with my parents for a cat. After much deliberation, they finally agreed that on my birthday, I would receive the much-desired feline companion. Opting to adopt a cat from the local vet, we contacted them and were informed about a particular cat in need of a loving home. This feline had been through a traumatic car accident and was currently recovering from a coma. When we laid eyes on him, we knew instantly that he belonged with us. With his cuddly nature and undeniable cuteness, we brought him home with us joyfully. (Interestingly, at that time, his eyes were a mesmerizing shade of green.)

How did Pico come by his name?
The credit for naming our cat goes to my dad. Observing the distinct dots on his body, my father decided to call him Pico, drawing inspiration from the French word for dots.

How would you describe his personality?
He has a charming and affectionate nature, always seeking attention and staying by my side. Similar to a large, lovable baby, he enjoys being petted, cuddling, and sharing my bed as he sleeps. Interestingly, he also has an affinity for brushes, expressing his delight whenever I groom him.

What are his preferred pastimes?
His two main interests are sleeping and eating. He takes pleasure in snoozing throughout most of the day, and when it comes to mealtime, his excitement is palpable. Additionally, during the warm summer months, he thoroughly enjoys venturing outdoors. Exploring his surroundings and basking in the sun are amongst his favorite indulgences.
