A special brother and sister pair of kittens arrived at the Wayside Waifs animal shelter in Kansas City, Missouri, two months ago. The staff soon realized that Atlas was at least partially blind — and likes to have his sister, Nova, around to help him.

Now, the shelter is looking to place them in a home together. — Watch it at KSHB Kansas City
