HOW ABOUT JUST BRINGING HIM HOME FOR A DY OR 2 TO TRY IT OUT. I HAD ONE ONCE, WASN'T COMPLETELY BLIND SO I LAID OUT A TRAIL OF FOOD FOR HIM TO FOLLOW UNTIL HE GOT USED TO THE HOUSE. ONCE HE KNOWS HIS WAY AORUND, SHOULD BE OKAY. I ALSO HAD A 19 YER OLD POODLE THAT HAD CATARACTS. MY HALF FERAL CATS WOULD BRING HER MICE TO CATCH AND WHEN IT GOT OUT OF HER LINE OF VISION, THEY WOULD BT AT IT SO SHE COULD FIND IT. THEY ALSO KEPT HER OUT OF THE ROAD. EVERYTIME SHE GOT TOOO CLOSE, THEY WOULD BUMP HER WITH THEIR SHOULDER AND HEAD HER BACK TO THE HOUSE. HOPEFULLY YOUR CAT WILL FEEL PROTECTIVE ALSO. WILL PRAY FOR ALL 3 OF YOU.
