Bumper was rescued along with two siblings by Friends
of Feral Felines in Henderson Nevada. The dogs were roaming the highway in Searchlight.
The mother was hit and dead on the road. One of the siblings was hit and had a broken
hip, but survived. He was terrified of people and wouldn't come out of his cage at the
vet's office. My Bumper, was fine, however. He probably stayed off the road because he is
frightened by car noise.
Bumper was born blind. He doesn't know any different.
I don't know how the heck he navigates the way he does. You'd swear he could see. I have
two theories. One is that he has an acute mental map of the property. The other is that
his sense of hearing and touch are hyper-developed and he feels the sound waves bouncing
back off objects.
