Stormy made it home after general anesthesia made her stop breathing and have seizures. She took a significant turn for the better on Monday, and she’s been eating, drinking, and using the litter box on her own, with no seizures. The thing is… she can’t see! I was told to keep her in a smaller room (opted for my bedroom so she gets lots of time and attention), free of hazards so she doesn’t hurt herself. She’s been wandering in circles, bumping into furniture and making frustrated- albeit adorable- sounds when something is in her way and won’t move (like a wall). She sees KIND OF, like she can tell the difference between light and shadow, but she can’t figure out how to get out of a corner or climb onto her pillow.

I’m okay with a blind cat if it doesn’t come back- that’s not the issue. I think she’s pretty unhappy with not being able to see where she’s going, though, and I’d like her to make a full recovery from her ordeal so she can play with her sister, catch flies, and hang out on the counter top, which are all things I’m pretty sure she enjoys.

My first cat has nearly gone blind during old age – she could only see light and shadows. At the beginning she was more often confused to where she was and couldn’t find the way back, sometimes she was stuck in corners. She then started meowing untl someone put her back to her chair, where she knew she was. Over time she learned to moved… Read more »
