Noticed Xena’s breathing seems a bit labored

When she plays with Gabbi she seems out of breath nowadays. Also seems to sleep more than usual. Made an appointment to get her checked out.

Always wants to drink from the sink

Like most cats. She just loves running water.

She’s been a bit clumsy lately.

She’s been a bit clumsy lately.

Falling off of counters, running into walls, not paying attention to things around her. Also her eyes started looking a bit more glossy. Figured it was nothing.

Found Out Xena Is Blind

March 23, 2017

Found Out Xena Is Blind

Had her checked by our Vet and we didn’t expect this at all! Vet told us it is PRA or Progressive Retinal Atrophy. It pretty much explains her clumsy behavior.  Sad day indeed. 🙁

Awareness

Awareness

Now that we know she’s blind, we decided to help make it easier for her by putting a bell on Gabbi so she doesn’t keep sneaking up on Xena. You’d never guess she was blind though since she navigates the house like she isn’t.

Created BlindBengal.com

Created the site to show how awesome Xena is despite being blind. Her adventures with Gabbi and how she lives day to day. Also to display information about how amazing cats in general are.
