A cat left without eyes after a string of neglect has become a TikTok star with millions of fans

A cat that went blind after being neglected to live on the street has found online fame on TikTok.

Moet, an eight-year-old Persian cat, had her eyeballs removed when she was a kitten after living on the streets of Oman without food, water or a safe place to sleep, causing her vision to deteriorate.

She was found in a dirty cage and just in a tray where she could lie.

She was rescued by a local charity and a few weeks later adopted by 51-year-old Emily Shotter from Nottingham in 2015, who only stopped by for food for her other cat.

But since being welcomed into a loving home, Moet has gained worldwide fame, and her other videos of being petted and leaving gifts for her host, Emily, have been viewed millions of times.

After Moet shared the clips on TikTok, Moggy went viral with her trademark squeaky meow.

In her latest video, the pet walks around the apartment at 3 am and quietly cries.

Since Moet usually wakes her up in the middle of the night, Emily decided to film the white fluffy Moggy earlier this week before uploading it online with the Titanic soundtrack.

The clip has been viewed 17 million times and received 2.9 million likes.

One user commented: “This is the cutest thing in the whole world.”

“Oh my god, I’m crying. This child is wonderful. I would give her my eyes in the blink of an eye,” another viewer said.

“I’m emotionally unstable for this,” one person said.

Another viewer added, “God, I would never let that kitty go… I was excited just watching.”

Someone else said, “My heart… it’s BROKEN, I would love to give your child’s eyes…”. I actually pay mine, so you can have them, okay? OR [I love you]’.

Owner Emily explained that she was looking for a companion for her other cat, whom she also rescued when she met Moet, a Persian kitten.

“At first I was very hesitant, but they talked me into ‘just coming and seeing her,’” she explained.

“I was surprised how confidently she walked around the room at the vet.

Owner Emily explained that when she went to a local charity to pick up some supplies, she was accidentally looking for a companion for her other cat, whom she also rescued when she met Persian kitten Moet.

Emily, 51, said she was “surprised” by how confidently Moet walked around the vet’s room.

“I had no idea what to expect from a blind cat, but I thought that they would not be able to navigate their environment and would be withdrawn and depressed. How wrong I was!

“When I approached her, she purred like crazy, and when I stroked her, she rolled over to scratch her stomach. I’ve been sold.

Emily claims that since she has Moet, who lives with three other rescued cats, there is not much difference with a blind cat, and encouraged others to open their eyes to adoption.

The eight-year-old pet also has an online store that donates 100% of the profits to Omani Paws, who help save animals, since Oman has no animal protection legislation, no government funding or support.

Moet is said to get bored easily since she can't see, so she needs to play a lot and

Moet is said to get bored easily since she can’t see, so she needs to play a lot and “enrich the environment” to keep her entertained.

Emily added: “Moet is a very sweet girl, but I think because she can’t see, she gets bored easily, so it’s important to play a lot and enrich the environment.”

“She wakes me up very early and then sleeps for several hours during the day but lets me know when she is hungry or bored.

“Moet definitely has a cheeky side too. But it’s amazing how easy they are to care for and what wonderful loving family members they become.

“It also teaches you a lot about how amazing they are and how to selflessly care for animals with ‘different abilities’.

“Moet’s voice on social media is important to us. Not only to show how amazing blind cats are in the hope that more will be adopted, but also to show the plight of animals in Oman and help other animals in need.”

Emily is now working with an animal rescue charity to help raise funds.

She said: “I work as a volunteer for Omani Paws, which helps rescue animals.

“But without animal protection legislation in Oman and without government funding or support, this is very difficult.

“So Moet online store donates 100% of the profits to the group and I also do my best to donate items for sale or fundraising.”
