Flash was brought to Petsmart when he was approximately 4 weeks old. His eyes were closed and we thought at first he had a severe eye infection.  But after seeing three different local veterinarians, several weeks of trying different eye ointments for treatment, we finally took him to the LSU Veterinary School for an evaluation. We found out that Flash's eyes don't produce enough tears. He probably did have a bad eye infection within the first few days after his birth, which resulted in the cornea and the third eye lid becoming abnormally attached.
Flash's eye problems have not slowed him down - even with limited vision in both eyes, he is the very typical young tabby cat, jumping, playing and even fetches paper balls.  He loves to show his affection by sucking on his foster mom's ear when she cuddles with him.

Other than needing special attention and daily treatment with ointment for his eyes for the rest of his life, Flash is an otherwise very healthy cat with plenty of life ahead of him.  He has been tested negative for FIV and FeLV, altered, updated on his shots and microchipped. 

Now all Flash needs is that special furever home. Are you that special guardian angel he is looking for?  Contact us at (337) 893-0377 if you'd like to meet Flash for yourself.  You won't be disappointed, tabby cats are always the most loving and affectionate cats there are!
