Lightbulb New to Cat Forum

Hi there! I am proudly owned by four beautiful tabby cats named Raja, Fred, Ronald, and Ginny aka Little Bit. I am also the feeder for a group of feral cats who have discovered that I am the Crazy Cat Lady At The End Of The Block. I found this forum while researching a problem that Ronald has been having with his eyes. He had an eye infection when he was a kitten (he is two years old now) and it was treated with vet approved eye ointment. Lingering problems include that his eyes shine differently than the other cats in the same light, his eyes always seem a bit weepy, one eye squints more than others, he reaches out very slowly and deliberately when attempting to touch something while also stretching out his nose and squinting. He also runs head first into furniture, humans, other cats... and he has a HARD head. I don't think that he has good depth perception, and just wondered if anyone has any insight into what is going on here.

My furbabies are extremely spoiled, and I'm always greeted at the front door with head bonks and meows when I come in from work. These babies are my children, now.... and love can't begin to hint about how I feel about these beautiful creatures... (even when Raja is using my knee as an anchor so that he can clean his backside... OUCH)

Ha! Welcome to the Crazy Cat Lady at the End of the Block from the Crazy Cat Lady of Kings Grant (subdivision)! You will really enjoy this forum.

Our Missy has had two major eye surgeries for corneal sequestrums which are very painful for the cat. Her opthalmologist was just wonderful. Was wondering if you had ever gotten a consultation to see a dedicated eye vet? Try putting some moisturizing drops in his eyes and see if that helps, too. I had to do that for almost a year after Missy's surgery and it helped alot with her comfort.

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"
