I don't know if this belongs here or in a different forum, but I have a 15 week old kitten that I rescued from the woods at around 8 weeks old. He was malnourished when I found him, but is now almost as big as my other 15 week old babies. I'm just wondering if there could have been some brain damage from the malnourishment. For example if I have his toy mouse and I hang it in the air and then drop it behind my leg, he has no idea where it is, he acts like it just disappeared, my other kitties all know I just dropped it behind me and they go get it. If I throw the mouse a short distance he can track it and find it, but if I throw it maybe 20 ft he acts like again it disappeared. And today he fell out of the house and didn't land on his feet. He's an indoor cat, but when I opened the door he was leaning on it and fell out and landed right on his back, as a matter of fact he never lands on his feet. I absolutely adore this kitten, he has completely stolen my heart and most of his little brain damage moments I think are very cute, but is he okay? Should I be worried about any of these things? When I took him to the vet after I found him, they said except for ear mites he was in perfect health. Has anyone else ever experienced it? This is Seamus, or Moose as I now call him.
