Photographer captures the beauty of blind cats to help them get adopted (Gallery)
This is beautiful.
"I am a cat photographer based in Los Angeles and I use my pictures to help animals get adopted," Casey shared with Bored Panda. "I photograph for numerous animal shelters and rescue groups, including Milo’s Sanctuary, which is a special needs cat rescue."
"A few months ago, I noticed an increase in the number of blind cats and kittens at the shelter and rescues where I volunteer. It felt like a sign so I decided I would do a series on blind cats. I had heard about Milo’s Sanctuary earlier this year because they had taken in a blind cat named Regis who I met at West LA shelter back in April. I contacted the founder and, fortunately, she (and Regis!) was willing to work with me on this project."

"Milo’s Sanctuary & Special Needs Cat Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) founded on the belief that all cats deserve a second chance at life, especially those that have physical disabilities, are seniors, have a terminal illness, or have been abused and need someone to love and understand them. All Milo’s cats receive medical care and anything else that they require to have the best quality of life possible."
