This older Siamese cat turned up at my girlfreinds house last week. It's well mannered but seems to be almost blind. Mary's cat swats at it and this cat doesn't attempt to fend for itself. My question is: this cats eyes look like the inner membrane has grown to about half the eye. Might be some cateract starting over one pupel as well. If this is some sort of curable desise, what can I treat it with?
I'm thinking the eye membrane is infected in both eye's. Maybe a sinus type infection is the root cause. He eats and is vocal. Doesn't stray far. It's crule but someone dumped him off. Any assistance would be greatly apreciated. Thank you.

Do some research on Siamese cats on the internet, their eyes are different than other cats. I have a Siamese mix and her third eyelid seems to stay out which might be what you are describing. She also is cross eyed although it doesn't seem to affect her vision much. The vet said being cross eyed is fairly common in Siamese cats. Their eyes also twitch when they focus on something. The cat may have a problem, but it could just be a normal Siamese.

Thank you for the replies. Yes he's definately cross eyed. And your correct, it doesn't seem to bother his hunting skills. As soon as I brought him back from the vet, he went exploring in the back yard and had a squirle barking at him. They gave him a shot of vitamins and pronounced him fit although he has an upper respitory infection (cold) He's eating, found a perch in the 1/2 bath off one bedroom on the towl shelf. I found out I won't be able to aproach him outside yet, have to wait a while for him to get used to being here. One worries when looking at him, with all the possible health problems. A orange & white striped Tom-Cat I had years ago came down with feline something. I seen him go outside and didn't see him again for 7 days. Turned out he must have come back on, went into a spare bedroom and waited to die. When he did come out after the week of missing, he looked oily, eye's were almost closed & had a huge sore on his tongue. I took him to the vet & they kept him overnight. It wasn't expensive and he'd have died without treatment. I can't remember what it was but it's common for cats that go outside.

Glad to hear that the Siamese is healthy. I always worry about my cats, so sometimes its hard to know what is normal and what isn't. It's good of you to take him in. Hope you guys have a good life together.
