Fletch was born with microphalmia,,one of his eyes was completely covered by a membrane and the other one he had limited sight. From what I have read some of these cats will go completely blind. And I can tell from the way he is acting that he has gone blind. He Is afraid at every little move. I'm hoping he eventually gets used to it. He knows this house so well, that he knows where everything is. The reason that he is on amoxi is that when I took him to the vet he had a temp of 105. They said he has some sort of infection that we need to get under control. He said that it isnt the virus that is making fletch feel sick but the infection he has. So he told me to keep him on it for three weeks. Yesterday when I saw the other vet (at the same office) she told me he could stay on it if he needed to.. So that's where I'm at....open for suggestions. Oh, today I got my liquid b complex and started him on that.
