Tortie Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone! Penny wants to say hello to her love, Toby.

001.

I am a little worried about Stinky. I noticed that one of her pupils is bigger than the other. My hubby thinks she just got hit in the eye when wrestling with Phoebe.

016This is the best photo I could get. She closes her eyes for the flash so I turned it off. It is her right eye. If it doesn’t improve in a couple of days then we will be heading to the vet. She is acting fine other than that though. Has anyone else ever had a cat with this problem?

  1. Please consult with your vet regarding Stinky’s eyes. Take note of his behaviour, mood, etc. This could be serious. We did have a cat who had this happen. We will be praying for him. Keep us posted. ❤

  2. We truly don’t have any answers, but a vet consult even over the phone would be useful and give you some guidance about how to proceed.

      • PLEASE let us know. Way back 22 years ago, my baby Robin had one pupil larger than the other. I took her to the Vet immediately now this was ages ago…and so happens there was a visiting Vet there specializing in eyes at that time. A woman. She prescribed belladonna type drops in Robins eye and warned us that she would foam at the mouth each time we have her the drops. Too much time has elapsed to know what the condition was and whether it was by mouth or dropper. But please take her. xox

  4. First of all, purrs and prayers to Stinky!

    Second, I always try my best to not be an alarmist, but I’ll admit that anything relating to abnormal pupil dilation really concerns me. From experience with my own animals as well as prior experience as a veterinary assistant, I would feel much better if you had Stinky seen by her vet. Since the eyes are close neighbors with the brain and can give off significant clues as to an animal’s neurological state, I would say that the sooner she is seen the better. Again, I don’t want to be an alarmist or scare you. This could very well be something essentially harmless and manageable, but it could also be something serious.

    Sending lots more purrs and prayers to you and Stinky!

    • Thank you for the purrs and prayers.She has a vet appointment tomorrow, I am nervous though after reading everyone’s comments. She is acting normal and walks fine so I hope it is nothing major.

  6. Penny you are an adorable Tortie…..My human sis recently adopted a 1 yo Tortie, Mia, from a cat rescue. Sis told mom Torties are very very loving.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. Phoebe
    I hope your eye gets better quickly. I had to go to the Vet last summer cause I was blinky blinky at mom. They gave me some drops. Mom was quite surprised that it was very easy to put drops in my eyes
    Hugs madi your bfff

  8. We see from all the comments that you’re taking Stinky to the vet tomorrow. We’ll look forward to an update and certainly hope it’s nothing serious.

    Penny is such a pretty girl!

  9. I am glad Stinky has a vet appointment for tomorrow. It may be something simple that can be cleared up with drops but it can also signal more serious problems. Always better to be safe than sorry. I am sending purrs that everything goes well.
    Penny is looking very pretty.

  10. Hoping the vet visit for Stinky goes well..a good idea to get that checked..i am hoping it is all a very easy fix problem..these kitties do worry us so../big hugs and good wishes for Stinky..loves Bev xxx

  11. Penny, you are such a pretty kitty.
    We are sure Toby will love this picture of you 🙂
    We also purr Stinky has a good visit with the Vet and nothing serious is wrong.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  12. Penny is a beautiful girl! We love the lovely colours in her furs. Ellen , don’t get too worried about Stinky until you have all the facts. It could be something that is easily taken care of or that resolves itself on its’ own. You’ll find out tomorrow at the vet’s and then you can go from there. You will be in our thoughts and we will also check back to see how everything went 🙂

    the critters in the cottage xo

  13. Glad to see you already have a vet appointment for tomorrow. An unusually dilated pupil, and the difference between the two eyes could be due to a minor eye irritation, or it could be a sign of something more serious. Purrs and paws crossed for Stinky.
