Some of you will know from reading previous blogs of mine that my little 1 year old Dinkycat is going blind. Luckily we have a brilliant vet who picked this up during a routine appointment some months back. We now have a wonderful specialist vet who has been investigating his condition further. Although it's not known exactly why he has them at such a young age we do have the chance of saving the sight he does have and possibly even improving it with cataract surgery.
This procedure is not without risk and the specialist has said she'd rather do one eye at a time just in case there are any complications as then we still have the other eye to work with. In preparation for his op, which is next monday morning, we are having to administer eye drops. Here is a pic of Dinky when he was tiny and we had to give drops. He looks so vulnerable, doesn't he? Well the job was a lot easier back then. Now it's like trying to pick up (and hold onto) a puddle!! He doesn't like being held one little bit, bless him.
So please keep your fingers, toes and paws crossed that he sails through his operation with flying colours. He's such a little dude as you can see below. He deserves a chance and I thought agonisingly long and hard about going ahead with the op and have decided life's going to be great for my little chap and if we can save his sight, even better.
