I took him to the vet today. We got in for a 2:00 appt. The vet said he is definitely neurologically damaged. She said he was probably born that way because the other 6 kittens are fine and have no problems with their growth or development.
She says he will never be right, his walk is not right. One of his pupils is smaller than the other and he might have some sight problems. She gave me the option of having him euthanized right now or waiting to see how he does later.
I opted to wait...which, translated, means that I cannot let the scrawny little rugrat, with all his wailing and running around the house to find me, all 3-quarters of a pound of him...go.
He's pitiful. He's miserable. But I saw him run yesterday and I also saw him look right up into my face today and cry at me while we were waiting at the vets. I also caught him trying to play with his big healthy brothers and sisters a couple of times, so.... he is stuck with me.
Will be posting pics soon
Got any name suggestions?
