Hehe, I love the yogurt pic! My cat wanted to say hi to all of you. I don't think she's ever had her picture posted here at interference.

This is Juno:



Juno and I hope Cricket is back to normal soon!

Oh dear! I just phoned her usual vet in Toronto, and the assistant said that this pupil problem could either be a neurological disorder or the beginning of a stroke!! She said the cat had better be taken in just to make sure...

Hey guys, don't panic - the most likely cause is uveitis (inflammation inside the eye), corneal ulcer is less likely based on her symptoms but still very common. It can be something serious - that letter that Lies posted covered pretty much all the possibilities - but the odds are that it's not. She just needs a good close-up eye exam Keep me posted on what's going on...

Angie - cats have 3 eyelids, not 7 silly They have the usual top and bottom like we have, and the third one usually is not visible, at the corner of the eyes nearest the nose. If you see it pop up, the eye is usually irritated.

BTW - I am one of those crazy vets that has office hours on Sunday - and guess who always gets to work it, 9-4 My new 2nd raise makes it a little less painful though

That sucks for you, but it would be great for me...my animals invariably get sick on weekends (and evenings and holidays). Are you at an emergency vet clinic or is it a more regular vet with extended hours?

Ok, got the cat to the vet's. They gave her a check-up. Looked at her eyes. Apparently the eye in question is her left one (the right one in the pic with the open pupil). It seems it's not reacting to light. My first thought is that she might be blind in that eye, so I asked if the eyes were "connected", thinking that if they shone light into one eye, would they both react to the light, or just the one.

The vet was on the same page, and as I was asking that, he was testing it. Shining light into the "unreacting" eye did in fact make the "good" eye respond, so she can still see out of it. He then looked into both eyes with one of those scopes. The optic nerves and blood vessels all look normal.

The pressure in the questionable eye was a little higher than the other eye, so that's a question. He took blood from her, and she was VERY good and didn't fuss about that at all.

Before I left, he gave her some medicine what was supposed to "relax" her eye and make it more responsive, or something. This is where the one problem occured.

On the way home, I noticed her spitting up foamy saliva. There was a LOT of it. When I got her home, she kept spitting it up, so I called the vet. They asked if she got car sick, but since she had made a 10-hr trip in a car, I said no. So she asked the vet. The vet got on the phone and was very apologetic - because he had given her the wrong medecine.

It wasn't a huge mistake, because it was still eye medecine, and it would still give us an answer with the eye, but it takes 24 hrs to work and not 2, and it makes her spit up saliva.

Right now she's fine. Not really spitting up any more. The vet called and said her blood tests all look normal so far, but the red & white counts will not come back until tomorrow, so we'll see.

Doing the lbs - kg conversion from her last weigh-in, she's gained around 1/2 lb, so I'm going to ask for the Rx cat food for her. She has a heart murmer, and I don't think the extra weight is doing her much good at all.
