10-year-old blind cat named Daredevil needs a home

"Daredevil the Cat" was recently rescued by Riverside County Animal Services.

Her owner had passed away of natural causes and she has no one else to look after her. The 10-year-old cat was nicknamed Daredevil by employees because she's blind, just like the comic book hero.

They say her new home needs to be a special one.

"This cat, even though it's now been with us for a couple weeks, it just attaches itself to whoever's nearby. It's just a very loving, very affectionate cat," said Riverside County Animal Services spokesman John Welsh.

Daredevil is now available at the Western Riverside County/City Animal Shelter in Jurupa Valley, located at 6851 Van Buren Blvd. Her ID number is A-891880.

Applications for the cat will be reviewed by senior staff members at the shelter. Her adoption fee is only $5 as the department is running its "Five-Dollar Fuzz Ball" special cat adoption promotion through Oct. 31.
