LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Posters have gone up in the area of Spring Street and Lexington Road about Job, a 5-month-old kitten that has been reported missing.
Job was taken from the animal shelter, to the Woodstock Animal Foundation, to a local couple for adoption. The kitten is also blind.
Anyone with information is asked to call 502-553-5740 or 502-396-0974

Poor little kitty. I hope he is found!
poor little guy, probably gone now, i’ve had numerous blind kittens, they just can’t see dogs or predators coming, they dont last long normally. I hope he’s just hiding somewhere.
How did the couple lose him?! Being blind, he should have been kept indoors.
The owners opened the windows for him the other day when it was cooler. Evidently, he somehow pried open a screen and got out while they were at work.
Hope they find him.
probably be easy to find. How many kittens walk with a cane?
What’s the point of posting this on FR?
How far can a blind kitten go? He must be hiding somewhere.
Awwww...what a beauty baby. Reminds me of my own tuxedo kitty. Hope he is found...how awful, being blind and completely helpless and vulnerable.
Praying the little guy gets found safe and sound.
You tell me what the point is and I’ll tell you what’s wrong with it.
He looks like one of my cats, Ello, who is blind also.
Prayers for blind kitten to be found. =^..^=
The point is it’s an animal thread — among many on FR — and many animal lovers on FR are glad to see them and participate in them. The point is that it’s about compassion for animals. The point is that it’s an informative thread and prayer works. The point is it’s allowed by the mod. The point is that if you don’t like such threads you are more than welcome to pass them by. Your turn.
Fangs! Poor kitteh. He’ll come home.
You’re welcome. Poor baby.
Heartbreaking. < |:(~
It's posted in Chat.
What’s the point of you posting on FR?
This “compassion” sure brought out the best in all of you.
Thanks for the ping - I sure hope that they can find him.
It brought out the best in YOU, as well, didn’t it?
So basically you’re the victim now because you got called out for trolling this thread? How very Alinsky of you.
Hon, I asked a question.
You and your pals got angry, like a flash mob.
1. None of us are “Hon.”
2. None of us are angry. If you think we are, perhaps you should go join the Dummie Funnies.
3. YOU are the one who chose to post an obnoxious statement on an obviously animal-lover thread, and WE are the ones who are defending our rights to post it.
4. There are no “flash mobs” here, but it sounds like you have experience in that area.
5. This is FREE Republic. That means we can post FREE-THINKING threads.
6. You just had the bad luck to post on a thread where folks get testy about animals.
7. Shame on you for being such a spoil-sport.
8. Perhaps you are a sleeper troll...
To annoy a moron. It seems to have worked.
And in you, my dear. The LACK of compassion we have seen from some posters here when ANY thread about animals is posted is beyond appalling. The reaction from these certain posters is sadly always predictable: 1) Get on the thread and whine about its presence (I know of no other type of thread where this occurs, by the way) 2) Get on the thread and whine about it NOT being about something else: animal rights, abortion, child abuse, whatever as long as it’s not compassion for animals or anything which would reflect such a position 3) Get on the thread and chide others for their compassion for animals. I wonder that those who use their energies in this manner don’t just pass up what doesn’t interest them...... Strange, strange.
A depressing ad about a missing blind cat is entertainment?
I was expecting that people of good will would step back and reconsider what the thread accomplishes. Evaluate the fruits...
We’re trying to ignore the fruit; but you won’t go away and leave us alone!
If you are looking for “entertainment,” you happened on the wrong thread. Again, shame on you for assuming the worst about every thread that is posted.
You are obviously NOT an animal lover, but I bet Peta is in your list of charities.
What a piece of work you are. Did your parents have any kids that lived?
It's pretty clear who finds it entertaining. You.
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
I know “nuts” and “flakes” when I see them.
Is that a reflection of your feelings? An animal (or human) in distress is never “entertaining,” and for you to suggest such an obviously ugly thought tells us all what kind of “person” you are.
Do us all a favor and stop trying to bait us. You are out-numbered, out gunned, and out of intelligent thought. And as for me, I will appreciate you much better if you don’t post to me again. You aren’t worth the replies you have gotten, even though you are smug in your posts.
To quote you: spoil-sport
Did I or did I not ask you not to post to me again? Are you so dense and/or puffed up in your own ego that you can’t understand English?
You have no valid argument.
You are simply seeking to foment turmoil.
You are probably a Sleeper Troll.
Therefore, you need to leave FR.
And once again: DO NOT POST TO ME AGAIN, ON ANY THREAD. PERIOD.
Will you STOP posting to me!
I don’t want to be bothered with your anger on this thread or any other. Just stop!
You are the one who is angry. Go away.
Cats who have never been allowed outside, will find the nearest shelter and stay there. I would guess that is the same with a blind kitty. She has different senses and probably found a snuggly spot and remained there. I’ve read that these cats don’t even call out. YOU have to find them.
I had this experience with a very scaredy kitten who leaned against a screen door that was not locked — and out she went. I found her on one side of the house — the next day, and when I did see her, she stayed put, and never made a sound. Even shaking the snack bag didn’t get a reaction from her.
You have to look under every bush and behind every piece of anything and not give up. I pray they find Job.
You are a true animal lover! Thanks for your insight.
God willing you are right.
