There are three major causes for blindness in cats.
Renal failure is the most common cause. With this, the retinas swell and will detatch, causing permanent blindness, if it is left untreated.
You need to see your vet as soon as you can.
Let me know if you still have questions.
Unfortunately, you can see this with all of these conditions.
Since your cat is not eating, it's urgent that you see a vet tomorrow.
Any time that a cat won't eat for more than 48 hours, you are in serious trouble. Their liver can fail and then the cat can die. It is called hepatic lipidosis where the liver thinks it is being starved and starts "grabbing" fat cells...and actually ends up killing the liver.
Let me know if you still have questions. I would be happy to tell you what I know.
Since he is showing marked improvment with the antibiotics, I feel led to think that he had an infection of some sort. Since his care and convalescence is revolving around urination, it might be crystals in the urine or a urinary tract infection that is the culprit.
I am glad to hear that you saw the vet!
Let me know if you still have specific questions. I would be happy to tell you what I know.
Great! I am glad to hear it!
Let me know if you have more questions.
I agree with the vet. They are not so toxic that a cat mouthing them a little will hurt them.
