Re: hi i am new to this
- 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.
