At the beginning of June I was asked to take in Lia for just one night after she's been neutered. She was found at a recreational ground, pregnant, where she was following everyone that she encountered and meowing - she just wanted to be picked up. She is around 1 year old. The minute I met her I realized she was the cuddliest cat ever! I was supposed to take her to the shelter the next day, but she developed eye problems: while she was under anesthesia they obviously didn't put enough protective gel on her eyes and they dried out:( I took her to the vet that performed the surgery but she only said that her immune system must have been affected by the surgery and she gave her some eye drops for a few days. Lia kept scratching at her eyes continuously so I decided to get another opinion and I took her to another vet the very next day. He gave her some anesthetic to check our her eyes properly and discovered the problem - ulcers were forming on both eyes. She needed regular eye drops every 3-4 hours: the tears, antibiotics and an antibiotic cream for the night. She also had to wear the cone but did remarkably well with it. From the way it looks now she will probably need eye drops for the rest of her life: the scars on her eyes are still visible but the eyes seem healed. She occasional still scratches at her right eye but she is now doing wonderfully. She loves to be around people, loves to be picked up and she adores to be cuddled. She likes to play with the little ones but is not particularly fond of their Mum, which is just the gentlest cat ever.
