Anything is possible, even if you're a blind cat.

This man and his blind cat climbed Carrauntoohil to raise money for charity

That's the message Patrick Corr is sending out after he and Stevie, his cat, successfully climbed Carrauntoohil.

Together they completed the climb to help raise money for animal welfare charities and to prove that all animals, even if blind, are special.

Patrick adopted Stevie four years ago from the Cat Hospital in Cork, and their climb took around four hours to complete.

Supported by Patrick's twin brother Eoghan they were forced to camp due to fog but eventually, they successful reached the summit.

Patrick previously said apart from being blind, Stevie is just "your average domestic suburban cat".

After climbing Ireland's highest peak, we'd say he is a lot more than average.

The whole climb was for charity and Patrick and Stevie have so far raised over €1,000 with donations going to the Tipperary Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Animal Care Society of Cork.


You can donate to Stevie's worthy cause by going to his GoFundMe page HERE.
