Manxi

Manxi was dumped at Animal control in Dallas.  (a very high kill shelter)
She is lucky that the volunteers and employees really liked her and worked hard to raise the money to fly her to us.




As soon as she arrived I knew I was looking at a hypertension cat 
which was confirmed the next day by the vet.  We immediately 
started her on medication.   The sad thing is we suspect that
she was dumped at the pound because she became blind.  Had her
owners immediately taken her to the vet and they high blood
pressure treated,  she may have regained her sight.



If your cat suddenly goes blind  RUSH your cat to the vet
and insist they check the cats blood pressure also.  Humans
get their blood pressure at the vets all the time,  animals rarely get
it done,  you have to advocate for your animal  :)

She likes humans,  not overly fond of other cats although 
as she has adjusted to her blindness she has gotten better.
