Pretty Rhea is quite a sight, but it is poor Davout that has the sore eyes.
He’s had some tears before, and I have some drops that I’ve used that have helped before. But last night it seemed bad, and now in both eyes so I decided to take him to the vets for a check. Could he have scratched one in one of his tussles with Rhea?
I’m not sure if Rhea is moping because she couldn’t come along or if she missed her brother.
They did eye checks like Julie had a few months back, looking for damage to the eye. We didn’t find any, thank goodness. So now we have to see if the drops help out over the next days.
So far it hasn’t changed his behavior a lot, aside from teary eyes and some crustiness after sleeping.
Sometimes this kind of thing can be a side effect of some infection, but he isn’t showing any signs of that – no fever or anything. If the drops don’t get rid of it we might have to look at that.
He was very good at the vets. He doesn’t like too much messing with his head so he was squirmy, but whenever he was left alone he started purring. This messed up the tech’s attempt to listen to his heartbeat.
He still likes to go for that camera strap first thing, sore eyes or not.
