Is it possible for a cat to lose his night vision? When I look at my 18 year old cats eyes, they don't look cloudy, a little hazey but that's it. He seems to be able to manuver around during the day quite well, enough to jump up on the bed, things like that. When my other cat started losing his vision he would try and jump on the bed but miss, then I knew his vision was going.
My 18 year old is not using the cat boxes all the time, going next to it or a few feet away. We finally were forced to put down big giant blue tarps so that when he missed it would be easier to clean up. I have tried leaving a light on in one room at night so it will reflect in both rooms (we have cat boxes in two rooms). I have done this for the last two nights and so far have had only one accident. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping this is the solution.
My vet said he thought it could be arthritis but I'm sure that isn't the case. Any other thoughts?
