      Dear friend,
      Welcome to the board. No doubt, you will find alot of good info
      from others here about heart and other related conditions. I too
      have heard about white cats(if Cotton is indeed white!) having that
      predisposition to blindness. I also agree that diabetis, even if
      it's well controlled, can cause blindness in people so it's possible
      in Cotton's case.
      Do mention the sneezing to your vet. Cats (and people) can have
      allergic reactions to aspirin, which can be serious. The most
      dangerous reaction would be an asthma attack. So the sneezing is
      deffinity worth watching. Good luck.
