When Stevie, named after the famous blind American singer and pianist, was found he was flea-ridden, suffering from worms, had a hernia in his stomach and both of his eyes were missing. Vets are unsure whether his eyes were surgically removed or he was born without them.
'He loves to jump, play with fishing rod toys and explore his foster home and garden. He really is a wonder. Amazingly in terms of himself Stevie is well, which is why it is so surprising that he does not have eyes.'
