    Hi,
    I have a cat called 'sammy'. We got him as a kitten and soon realised he was blind. He is an amazing animal who has adapted to his condition amazingly. He can walk around our house fairly quickly and can even chase a ball using his ears. Its truely inspireing.
    Does anyone else have a blind pet? How do they get on?

    I have a half blind dog, a fully blind dog and a one eyed gerbil. Also used to have a one eyed fish but it died :(

    My blind dog gets around fine, it's amazing how they manage isnt it!

    my other dog and my gerbil dont really have any problems as they have half their eyesight, my gerbil does have to run round in a little circle to be able to see you though :thumbup: i love her to bits!

    I would have no hesitation in taking on a blind pet again in the future, they are great and really no trouble at all, we've not had any difficulties with Ruby, just have to watch you don't change the furniture around too often though cos she gets used to the layout. She can also go up and down the stairs without a problem, albeit a bit slow lol :)

    Got an old donkey who is very nearly blind, just have to make sure we don't leave anything in a daft place, she follows her friend around and finds her feed bucket with her chin!
