My cat was unfortunately involved in a freak accident with a picture 3 days ago. The picture fell off the wall and hit her causing blood vessels in and behind her eye to rupture. The vet and I have done our best to save it, but they are now saying it looks as if the eye itself has ruptured and will have to be removed. I am really struggling with this issue. My question is, has anyone else dealt with anything like this and what's the best thing I can do to make it easier for her? Will this affect her quality of life or possibly cause a change in personality?View Thread
Thanks. She has actually always been an indoor car. She had the surgery 4 days ago. The veterinary ophthalmologist works at the cat hospital that we go to, he said the eye was definitely badly ruptured. She is doing well and getting better every day. She does have some depth perception issues right now. She has walked directly into the wall at night and moves a little slow right now (partly because of the cone). I appreciate your feedback.
