Meet Stevie, a blind rescue cat who loves to hike with her human.
Patrick Corr is a serious animal lover. That’s why he adopted Stevie, a blind rescue cat, from a local shelter in Cork, Ireland. The two have been best buds for four years now. But Stevie isn’t like most cats. Yes, she’s blind, but she’s also an expert hiker!
The animal rights activist shared with Bored Panda that he, his brother, and Stevia recently ascended the highest mountain in Ireland, Carrauntoohil in County Kerry, for the purpose of raising money for local shelters in the area.
“We wanted to give back to the people who make it their life’s work to helping animals in need. Together we raised over €1500 ($1700)! As with all animal shelters, the costs involved in providing love and care for animals can be quite high but this money will help the good work to continue!”
The athletic cat is now taking a well-deserved break but is likely to join in on other adventures.

This is Stevia, a blind rescue cat.
She recently hiked the tallest mountain in Ireland – 3,406 ft!
Her human and his brother had the brilliant idea to raise money for charity.
They set off early in the morning…
And climbed for a total of six hours – there and back.
Snack breaks were had.
And they even camped on the mountain!
This is the view from the top of Carrauntoohil
