Blind Dog Has Seeing Eye Kitty-Friend (Video)

Terfel, an eight-year-old dog, may have cataracts, but things aren’t so bad. He also has a seeing-eye cat friend.

“They’re fantastic friends,” says Judy Godfrey-Brown of Holyhead, North Wales. “They really love each other, and they’re together as often as they can be.”

Terfel had already lost most of his vision to cataracts when their original owner took in a stray cat. The kitty immediately began helping Terfel, who used to spend most of his time sitting in a basket. The owner named the cat Pwditat. (In Welsh, the “w” is pronounced “oo.” So the name is pronounced “Puddytat,” as in, “I tawt I taw a puddy-tat.”)

Ms. Godfrey-Brown took in Terfel and Pwditat after a long-time friend could no longer care for them.

“Pwditat will swarm around Terfel, and lead him about,” said Ms. Godfrey-Brown in an interview, explaining that the cat will use his paws and head to nudge Terfel in the right direction. “He’s very affectionate toward Terfel.”
