Aaaaawwww, what a sweet, pretty little fella! :wub: Has he got cataracts and a head tilt? Or is it just the angle he's standing?

Yeah he's completely blind on his right side. Not sure about the left, me and the vet thought he had partial vision on his left that why he was tilting. The tilt was worse when he first came to me last year. I think he's blind now on the left because he has a detached retina, not sure though.

I have a suspicion he may of had one or several bad ear infection, but I wasn't given any history when he came to me, but he's had two ear infections since he's been with me.

He's defiantly brain damaged, he purrs and randomly rumble struts. Smart enough to scream at me when he wants picking up though!

he is lovely, bless him :love:

Lemons! Thats a unusual one :)) Make sure it is only rare as a treat though as they are very acidic.

He is a very special little lad :love: hope to see lots more of him, thanks for sharing his photos with us.

Poor little Norman :( So adorable! :love:

You got me thinking now, after I had scoffed a load of pancakes earlier this year for Shrove Tuesday, our Zebedee went mad on a wheeking spree and tried to eat my fingers and chin! :)) I'm wondering now if it was the orange or lemon juice I used :hmm:
