    An adorable kitten missing both of her eyes will get a second chance at life after rescuers believe she was abandoned by her prospective owners.
    "She's very affectionate and she loves people," Terri Crotty, founder of Wags 2 Wishes Animal Rescue in Plainfield, Ill., told ABC News. "She wants nothing more than to love on you and be close to you and snuggle you."
    Crotty said Wags 2 Wishes received a call on Nov. 1 from a local family about a orange tabby kitten that was discovered in their yard.

    "[She was] basically saying her children found the kitten in her backyard and it appeared to be very young and its eyes just started to open," Crotty said. "As soon as I saw the cat, I knew something wasn't right. At that point I said my volunteer was going to take the kitten to the vet. That's when we discovered that the kitten was actually born with no eyes."
    Crotty said that since the kitten, who was later named Freya, was found alone, its former owners may have abandoned it in a stranger's yard.
    "I honestly think [Freya] came from a litter," Crotty said. "The homeowners looked all over to try to find more kittens because if there's one, there's got to be more and there were none."
    Crotty said Freya was brought to Timberline Animal Hospital in Joliet, Ill., where she received surgery to close her eye sockets to minimize the risk of infection.
    Crotty added that a volunteer at Wags 2 Wishes is very interested in adopting Freya to give her a fresh start in life.
    "[The volunteer] typically likes to adopts kittens or dogs with disabilities," Crotty said. "It was almost like fate in a way. The cat will be able to live a normal life. It's just going to take a very special person to make that adjustment.I

    ...nsal had a long segment on gma yesterday about all the dogs they have to sell you. not one mention of beth stern or nsal's furry friends project. i thought it was kind of interesting the CHIEF spokesperson for nasal was mia. they did have 5 people on stage with puppies who actually work at nsal which i thought was nice. but yeah i was surprised beth didnt get her bucked teeth in on a morning tv show.

    Beth apparently is to busy prepping for the $300 per plate Bulldog Bash rather than work her day job - scouring the country for vision impaired felines.
