Blind 2-year-old Munchkin Who Fits in the Palm of a Hand, Needs Forever Home in Boston Area!

MASSACHUSETTES – The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals usually places about 4,000 cats in new homes each and every year, but little Giselle may be the most challenging feline to find a home for — ever.

Giselle is a blind, 2-year-old Munchkin cat who is so small – she can fit in the palm of a hand.

Shelter manager Alyssa Krieger explained may be the most challenging cat the Jamaica Plain adoption center has ever tried to place.

Giselle was surrendered by her “overwhelmed” former owner back on Sept. 23, the MSPCA stated. She is completely blind, suffers from joint and nerve pain which is controlled through medication and is on the mend from a lung infection.

However, despite the ailments, Giselle is “full of life and love” and adores companionship, lap snuggles, chin scratches and other cats, the MSPCA stated.

Giselle even has her very own Instagram feed: @RealStumpyCat, which the shelter team set up in hopes of raising her chances of adoption!

Giselle’s ideal adopter would be someone who can keep her away from stairs, since she can’t see and her legs are too short to navigate them, the MSPCA stated.

Anyone who may be interested in possibly adopting Giselle can email for more information or to set up a time to see her.
