If you follow me on my Facebook page, then you know how much I love Greenies. I honestly can’t get enough of them. As most of you know, they are my all time favorite cat treat, so when I came home to find this box of Feline Greenies had been sent to me from the Greenies people, I was in shear heaven!
Today we would like to share with you the story of Jerry, a visually impaired kitty who lost one of his eyes to Iris Melanosis.
Jerry’s Story As Told By Jerry Himself
My mama adopted me from the Wisconsin Humane Society in August of 2006. I had just turned 7 years old. She was looking for a boy kitty and I picked her! I had been adopted out of WHS once before but I am truly in my forever home now! A few days later mama took me to a vet. It wasn’t the usual vet, but it was a free exam so mama took advantage of it. I had funny brown spots on one of my eyes and mama asked the vet about them. The vet said it was nothing to worry about. A year later mama took me to our regular vet for a yearly wellness exam and the vet was concerned about the spots on my eye. She said mama should watch it to make sure I didn’t get more spots. When we got home mama looked at photos from the previous year and she could see the spots were getting worse. Mama took me to an animal ophthalmologist our vet recommended for an exam. He said I had Iris Melanosis and recommended my eye be removed or I would probably develop cancer. My left eye was removed in March 2008. Continue reading
Today I thought I’d share with you some tips on how to take a great photograph of your cat. Taking a great photograph of your cat begins with some brain storming. Start by asking yourself what is it about your cat or their personality that makes him or her special, for example, are they lazy, do they sleep a lot, are they playful, etc. Once you have brainstormed a little and figured out the type of personality you would like to capture in your photograph, take some time to observe your pet. When is your cat most likely to preform this type of behavior? In the morning, afternoon, late at night, etc. Knowing your cats personality type and schedule will help you to set aside just the right time to photograph your pet.
