MIDWEST CITY, Okla. - (KOCO/CNN) - Omni, a cat born without eyes in the Middle East country of Bahrain, had a rough start to her life. Then, Brian Clines of Oklahoma rescued her while stationed in the country while in the Navy.
But recently, while a friend was watching Omni, she got out and Clines thought he had lost her.
Omni, short for Omnipotent, was picked up by Midwest City Animal Welfare. With help from Forever Friends Animal Refuge, they immediately started searching for her family.
“It’s actually pretty incredible to watch her," said Adrian Sanders with Midwest City Animal Welfare. "She’s very aware of her surroundings. She had no problem finding her food, water, litter -- all that stuff. She does fine!”
Never expecting to see her again, Brian’s mother, Elizabeth Thomas, got a call about Omni, thanks to information found on her microchip.
“Through the chip, that they were able to contact my father in California, who contacted me in Florida, and I was able to get in touch with the person who has the cat now.” Thomas said.
Brian works and goes to school full time. For now, Omni will stay with his mom in Florida until he has more time.
"He’s very relieved that the cat has been found, and she’s safe and that she’s coming to me, a home where he knows she’s going to be loved and she’s going to be very well taken care of, and he can visit her still too.” Thomas said.
The cat from around the world might have used up a few of her nine lives, but for now, she’s safe.
