This may be the last picture of my sweet Charlie for a while. She was standing next to the dishwasher last night while I was loading dishes and got lemon juice in her eye from a splash while I was loading, which apparently burned her left cornea. Had a late night visit to the vet, so she's got lots of meds and we go back for a re-check tomorrow. She'll be wandering around for the next couple weeks or so with one of those elizabethan collars on. She looks like she's about to run off and join the nearest traveling circus.........

Hopefully everything will heal quickly and return to normal soon. Who knew lemon juice was so toxic???

    Thanks for the well wishes everyone! We just got back from a re-check at the vet, and her eye is well on the road to recovery. She should be back in action soon!

    Aw, poor sweetie. But this is a lovely shot of her. You'll just have to post to the Elizabethan Collar pool for the next few weeks : )

    What a sweetheart. I hope she's doing better, poor little thing. And I had to laugh at the "... there's an elizabethan collar pool???" I had no idea, either! LOL

    Geez... i am overly paranoid when it comes to things that could possibly hurt my cats, yet I generously used lemon juice to discourace them from peeing all over the welcome mat. Never worked, but after seeing this, I won't do it again. Hurt cat versus the slight smell of wee on a washable mat= easy decision. Love that pic, what a BEAUTY!!
