It is difficult to argue with the fact that the animal in the family – a joy and a host of other positive emotions. And of course, any owner wants to his four-legged friend lived as long as possible in good health and harmony. I want this and I whose companion for life (do not want to call themselves owner or owner) is already over 18, 5 years is a nice kitty, hereditary "aristocrat" of a natural three-color color. But, unfortunately, time inevitably tends to life dear to me being the sunset and it is impossible not to recognize. Over the last year has changed life significantly decreased activity arrived illness. Particularly saddened by my actions resulting from intraocular hemorrhage blindness Briefly describe the symptoms of this phenomenon, because many cats in adulthood suffer high blood pressure and at any moment can go blind. Cat starts to walk in a circle, bumps into objects, losing orientation, it becomes very restless. The University of Chicago has firm opinions on the matter.
Pupils dilated and not responsive to changing light flux. In the depths of the eye (fundus) is not even the naked eye traces hemorrhage. Cat may refuse to eat and drink. The most important thing in this situation – do not panic, but try as soon as possible to contact your veterinarian in order to prevent stroke and other severe consequences of elevated intracranial pressure. That, in principle, and I did – a veterinarian appointed diuretics and supportive drugs.
Of course, my experience does not pass, and tears dimmed his eyes, seeing as trying to move on apartment cat. Need time to cat adapted to new conditions of life. And then your caring and concern for the four-footed family member would be most welcome. First of all try to protect a cat of any shocks, and create the most comfortable to move about the apartment. After a while the cat will remember their main "highway", which means that it goes always be free. Try not to rearrange furniture and do not clutter aisles things – cats are very difficult to quickly adjust their routes. It is especially important to remember that in this state cat could easily fall from a height and hitting. And this in turn could trigger a new attack and new hemorrhage. Be careful! Do not leave the cat alone, for example, if a routine custom, she drinks from the sink in the bathroom or you put her on one of the shelves cabinet. Now, after six months, my animal is already quite mastered, the appetite has recovered, the cat jumps on the couch alone, where they are accustomed to sleep, returned to the habit of drinking running water from the sink. And I want to believe that despite their age, blindness, join her and deafness, my pet for many years will delight us with his presence in this world. And so I'll try to give it a dignified old age.
