I’m sorry. I read your old post about Locky getting out but I haven’t been on/read anything where your Locky had any eye issues. I’m sorry 🙁 Animals really are such an important part of our lives. My fingers are crossed for you guys.

I feel your pain.

I am a bird lover, and my girl ‘Tiel who has been my constant companion for over 7 years is deathly ill with peritonitis, and likely will need to be put down next week if her antibiotic therapy does not work.

They just worm their way into your heart, hey.

I will keep my fingers crossed for both our pets.

Was his eye scratched or punctured from when he was missing?  Do you have a veterinary ophthalmologist near by that could look at Locky?

Hope he feels better soon!

@pixiecat:  This was my first thought…maybe he got hurt after a fight with the stray? Crossing fingers and toes for you. I knowhow you feel, my old lady cat gave me a scare a few months ago, I bawled like a 2 year old at the vets, at home, nd then again when her blood tests came back negative. Happy tears the last time.Good luck!

I am so sorry. I have dealt with eye problems in cats several times and it can be tricky. One cat did end up having to have his eye removed because it ruptured. That was 8 years ago and he is very much with us.

I had a recent case where the corneal ruptured and the vet the eye would probably have to be removed. I begged the vet to let me have some time. Between antibiotic eye ointment and oral antibiotics, the eye was saved, and there is only a tiny cloudy patch.

I am a bit confused about the possible leukemia. There must be other symptoms other than the eye. A simple blood test can be used, although it does have a very high false positive rate and the diagnosis should be confirmed with PCR.

None-the-less, I wish the very best for your kitty and pray he comes out ok!

@trueblue14:  Feline leukemia virus can cause uveitis (inflammation within the eye) in cats
