Libby: The Seeing Eye Cat
Cashew, my 14-year-old
yellow Lab, is blind and deaf. Her best friend is Libby, 7, her
Libby steers Cashew away from obstacles and leads
her to her food. Every night she sleeps next to her.
The only time they're
apart is when we take Cashew out for a walk. Without this cat, we
know Cashew would be lost
and very, very lonely,
indeed. It's amazing, but true: This is one animal who knows what needs
to be done and does it day in and day out for her friend.

"Any glimpse into the life
of an animal quickens our own and makes it
so much the larger and
better in every way." ~John Muir
