I am SO sorry! So many people saw my feed a couple weeks ago that Oreo & I were at the vet's office.
He's OK. He started sneezing violently &, to put it bluntly, 'blowing snot'. I took him to the vet. I knew he didn't have FIV or FEL-V. He tested negative when I got him & he had all his shots. I can't remember what it's called but it has to do with his immune system, which is crappy and is probably why he's blind. He's on L-Lysine & FortiFlora. He does have a type of herpes virus that just wrecks havoc on him. But then he bounces back.
He's also slowly losing eyesight in his left. He's totally blind in his right eye. In October, when I found him, he still had about 30% vision in his right eye. That's diminished a bit. The vet said he'd probably be completely blind by summer. But he's got Zeus, who is also totally blind and deaf in 1 ear.
I've decided that when we go on our cruise I'm going to board Zeus & Oreo with the vet. It'll be safer & better for them, considering their 'handicaps'.
for asking about Oreo. He is a sweet cat!
