Meet Stevie, An Incredible Blind Rescue Cat Who Has Become An Expert Mountaineer

Stevie is a blind rescued cat I adopted 4 years ago from a local shelter in Cork, Ireland. She’s a natural explorer and loves to accompany me on hikes in the beautiful Irish countryside and the surrounding mountains. When we go hiking together, she usually prefers to explore all by herself and follows my sounds but she also walks alongside me on a leash or balances on my shoulders with ease!

Life has been pretty busy lately, I’ve recently become a father of two and my fiancee and I are also saving up to buy our first house but Stevie continues to be a very important part of my life as she’s always been – we’re inseparable!

Currently, we’re planning a big hike in March 2016 where we’ll tackle Ireland’s highest mountain Carrauntoohil to raise money for animal welfare in Ireland. Stevie has always been an inspiration for me and continues to be with her courage, tenacity and her great love of life!
