Orphan Kitten's Eyes and Concerns for my 10 month old cat
I am just getting around to posting but have been reading for many months. I am a faithful reader. I have had cats in my life as long as I can remember however after loosing my darling Powder Puff at 14 yrs I decided I couldn't have another cat, It hurt to much loosing her. Well as we all know not everything go's as planned LOL My darling DohG came into my life on May 13th 2005 along with his sister. Their mother was a feral in the neighborhood that I had hoped to catch and spay was able to. She was however trapped by a very unfriendly person on May 11th. We had a horrid storm and I went to check the kittens, Finding 1 already had passed away, I was however able to save the remaining two. DohG is a Beautiful Blue with some white long hair boy and his sister *Who Now lives with My sister* is a Black with white.
DohG claimed me as his own, I am his mommy, slave and he is the King of the house!
This brings me to my 2 concerns tonight.
My grandmother called me today, she has a feral cat that claimed her house as hers. She is finally able to touch her a bit but has yet to be able to get her spayed. The mom wasn't able to nurse her baby after 4 days. I have been helping her hand feed him a bit, but she asked me to take him today because she is unable to continue caring for him the way he needs to be.
My biggest concern for him right now, is his eyes. He is 14 days old. His eyes are blue, and look a bit cloudy. They have been open now for 2 or 3 days. Is this normal? My vet didn't want me to bring him in unless I saw something to be concerned about because of how young he is.
Is there anything I need to be concerned about with DohG in terms of diseases from this baby? DohG is Up to date on his shots, however he wasn't given a Feline Leukemia shot because my vet felt that because he tested neg and is a indoor only cat that he didn't need it.
Thank you so much for your help! I will be posting again.......Its endless questions everyday it seems with DohG LOL
Michelle & DohG....and the wee Blue eyed wonder that needs the perfect home
