Ray Roosevelt After Surgery

Ray and Roosevelt are Very Special Brothers!

Ray & Roosevelt have not had an easy life. When the brothers were only 3 months old they were suffering from conjunctivitis - an inflammation of the moist tissues in a cat's eye, usually caused by a simple virus. Thankfully someone brought them in out of the cold and turned them in to Dallas Animal Services a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. Getting the boys out of the shelter and into their first foster home was a collaborative effort involving several kind people in our community.


Roosevelt and Ray made themselves at home with their foster and began exploring new smells and sounds. Roosevelt developed a keen sense for his surroundings and was able to quickly discover the toys and food and litter area.  Ray is a great help to his brother as well as a lifelong friend. 


After a few weeks Roosevelt had his procedure to close his eye sockets, allowing him to begin a life free from infection and discomfort. It is very seldom that we are reminded Roosevelt is blind.  His sense of the world around him is amazing. By the way, his purr engine increases by the day. The love he shares has never diminished!


Raymond received his eye procedures shortly after Roosevelt.  His eyelashes and lids were made to keep from growing into his eyes.  He did wonderfully and like his brother, he was an outstanding patient.


Both boys run, jump, play and bask in the sun.  Ray looks out the window and reports to Roosevelt when the mail man or Fed ex truck truck delivers.  Of course Roosevelt is fully aware of footsteps and your scent so he and Ray welcome you always when coming into their room.   


There are a couple of areas where the boys need supervision. They enjoy a night of toilet papering their bathroom and bedroom.  If a magazine is left with them overnight, it will not be in the same shape as it began!


The boys are now ready to be adopted. They are very bonded with each other and must be adopted together. If you are interested in adoption, please contact us at In addition to the eye treatments, each brother has been neutered, tested for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated for rabies and FVRCP and microchipped. Although, we know they are worth it, the vet bills for the boys have run close to $3,000. If you would like to donate towards their medical care, you can DONATE HERE. If you would prefer to purchase items for the cats from our Amazon Wish List we would certainly appreciate that as well!
