Thread Starter 
i have 3 sweek old kittens all have eyes open 2 are wandering around but the 3rd seems reluctant to come out of nesting box, she cries when you pick her up and she doesn't seem to be focusing on you when looking at you, Do you think that she could be blind?? any suggestions welcome

Has mom had contact with her. Moms can tell if something is wrong.

Mum is absolutely fine with her but she herself looks helpless, like she cannot see a thing

It takes a little while after their eyes open for them to focus.

Give her a few more weeks before you ask the vet if there is something wrong. Some kits are just slower then others.

Awwww! Poor baby! I saw something on Animal Planet once about a blind cat who hated to be picked up because it scared her. I'm wishing the best for her and pray that she'll adapt and be a happy girl. I'm sure she will!

Helen...as in Helen Keller? She founded the American Foundation for the Blind.

To think that anyone else would have just given up and gotten her euthanized, but...the gods were looking down on her when they gave her a keeper like you!

HI Guys, Update on My little baby.
Well the Vet said that She is partially sighted, however it may just be due to her not developing as quickly as the other 2.
So i have to take her back in 4 Weeks to check her again but apart from that she is perfectly healthy!!!
post #23 of 27
I'm glad to hear that she is healthy! God bless the little Sacha...and the other two too! Hugs from my Tinks to yours!

That is good to hear. Skittles is blind in 1 eye and she gets alon great..So she has some sight that is terrific.
post #25 of 27
that is so sad. im so sorry, we thought one of tazzies babies was blind. we were going to keep that one., but now we know she can see, and we still are keeping her. She will get to where it wont matter, she ill jsut take extra love. and an extra special mama to love her.
You will do fine!!!

Blind cats can get along pretty easily, just like blind humans... they memorize the house, and they use their ears and whiskers; and you say this one has got some sight, so she'd be able to use light/dark, motion, maybe some blurred images...

Sacha will be fine. Just don't move the furniture too much or she will be confused!

My Nina is almost blind, due to the fact her eyes are so crossed. She sees mostly shadows and movement. That was the reason I adopted her. I couldn't stand the thought of her not having a home because she looked funny. She is a sweetheart and I think she is beautiful. You have a special little kitten!
