    I'm just crushed today

    Last week we had our cat Minnie in to see the opthamologist and were told that she could regain the vision in her one eye with a cataract operation.

    So for 7 days, we've been putting in drops and getting ready for her 2 week post-op recovery.

    This morning we drove her into the city (2hrs of her complaining) and checked her in.

    I just had a call from the surgeon to tell me that when they did the final test before surgery, they found that her retina was too damaged and that she wouldn't regain her sight so they won't be operating. She is already deaf, so we can't afford to have her lose vision as well and she has another cataract developing in the other eye.

    I am so terribly disappointed right now.

    So sorry for your frustration and how sad this must make you. Her look is almost too resigned to look at.

    Sucks, I'm sorry to hear that. She looks like a beautiful cat. Can the docs take care of the other cataract that's developing in the other eye? As Audio Tech said, love her as hard as you can. Good luck.

    Re: I'm just crushed today

    I have to admit that I used a pic of sad cat from the net to picture how I was feeling.

    You have to remember though....she has just dodged eye surgery and wearing a cone collar for the next two weeks.

    So without seeing her....I think her expression is more like....




    Thanks for the nice thoughts though guys.

    There does seem to be some hope to save the other eye if it gets worse, except that we think that this is a congenital issue...

    I'm sorry to hear about your kitty not being well. One thing to remember is that cats are very resilient, though as humans we are not always able to understand how they do it. I'm sure you take good care of her and with the love and care you provide for her, she will be able to adjust. I'm wishing Minnie a great recovery and you strength so you can take care of her.

    Re: I'm just crushed today

    So a little about Minnie's backstory.

    She came lurching up the driveway one incredibly hot July day 7 years ago and settled down under the bush beside the back east verandah. We put down a bowl of water and some food.

    When we came home that afternoon after work, she was still curled up sound asleep under the bush.

    I thought she'd be startled and run but she didn't wake up.

    And then I thought that maybe she was actually dead.

    So I went down the steps with another plate of food and crawled in under the bush on my stomach and touched her.

    She woke up and didn't try to run away at all. Just purred and purred and gave me love bites.

    So we scooped her up and took her into the vets to be checked out. Turns out she was congenitally deaf and that she had part of her cerebellum missing because her mother had distemper when she was pregnant. This also left Minnie with some interesting gait peculiarities. And being a really messy eater.

    We learned quickly that she hated other cats and when we brought her back into the house once she'd been treated at the vets, she then was quickly transferred to the office as we tried to find a good home. Well we did. We took her back into our household after about 4 months just before we had a big winter storm that would have prevented us from running back into the office to feed her. It was hell on skates for the next 18 months as she took on each of the other cats, except Buddy who was older and just avoided her nonsense.

    About a year ago, we learned how she ended up at our farm from a neighbour down the way.

    His brother was being driven home after work and a couple of miles away, his boss, who was driving, almost ran over 2 cats who were on the road. The boss got out of the truck and took a sledge hammer out and just killed the one cat. Our young neighbour jumped out and rescued Minnie; taking her back to their place where she was put in a shed with some food and water, but couldn't be let into their house because of someone's allergies.

    She obviously wasn't finished wandering because she had crossed the highway and made her way along the ditch until she found our lane (not the first lane she likely would have crossed either), and made a turn up to our house.

    And so here we are.

    My partner is pretty upset today as well (given that he spent the day driving her back and forth to the City) but mostly because we thought that her prospects for sight recovery were so good.

    We've told all of our friends that we've spent so much time teaching her sign language that we don't know what to do if she is blind as well. Except change her name to Helen and watch the Miracle Worker again a few more times.

    I can tell that you really care about your cat. That sledge hammer story made me both sick and angry. I dont get people sometimes. Im sitting here with my kitty right now and couldn't imagine anyone wanting to hurt her.

    Im sorry to hear about your cat's troubles, its a good thing that she has a good home.

    People love their pets like another family member. When your mother is blind and deaf, will you send her off to get killed off to get another replacement? I suspect not. Your idea was insensitive.

    No, it isn't suffering. It is life.

    And telling someone to off their pet is not 'advice', and it's even worse when you laugh at it.

    I truly wish I could say the things I would like to say.

    Cats are not like pizzas. We do not just order another one from the convenient one-number call centre.

    While the question of her contentment in her remaining days may be a fair one, I am more interested in hoodedrat's question: how's the prospects for the other eye?
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    Re: I'm just crushed today

    The good news is that the cataract in the other eye is quite small and may take some years to develop.

    The bad news is that because of the approach that the veterinary surgeon and his staff took....without going into the details, we really have lost just about all of our confidence in having them follow her case any more.

    So the first thing we are going to do is look for another specialist to do assessments on a regular basis.

    But as far as Minnie is concerned....(as usual she is sleeping on the chair next to me)....she just missed a bullet. And she has just about forgiven us for seven days of eyedrops that she. didn't. like. at. all.

    I still miss the cat I had to have put down 13 years ago........
    She dodged a bullet once when I thought for sure she was going to die but pulled through and was around for another 2 or 3 years.
    I love the one I've had for the past 13 years too but not in the same way I loved the other.
