A small kitten named Tria Maria recently became a “naturalized U.S. citizen” after flying from her Greek island home of Rhodes to the U.S. Tria is the adopted kitten of Wardsboro residents Haunani and Ralph Wallace, said the Deerfield Valley News. The couple has visited Rhodes several times in the past, staying in the town of Gennadi. They found a small meowing kitten, weighing less than a pound, sitting on a rock, during a rainstorm on their most recent stay last September. They brought the kitten in, pulled out the more than 100 burrs embedded in her fur, and discovered the kitten was blind, having been born with no eyes. After much deliberation, they decided to bring the kitten back to the U.S. with them. Tria underwent a series of vaccinations, and needed to get a passport required for traveling in Europe since they made a stop in Germany. Being blind hasn’t stopped Tria from settling into her new home and adjusting to the Wallace’s two dogs. She has at least eight lives yet to live.
