Head, Ears, nose, and eyes, nose and eyes.

When I got Dac I noticed her eyes were constantly running.  When I took her to the vet, he said he really couldn’t do anything for her.  The tube between her eyes and nose are plugged on both sides so instead of fluid draining into her noise it drains out of her eyes.  He said he could do surgery, but it may not work or the tubes could close up again.  He said the draining out of her eyes wouldn’t affect her health so I just let it be.  I will occasionally clean her eyes, but usually I just let her be.  I have noticed she occasionally cleans her eyes so that makes me happy.

Cat use their ears to balance (humans also use their ears to help them balance).  Their tail also helps them balance, but is not essential for balancing.  Dac has just a stub of a tail and can balance exceptionally well.  If you do ever get an outdoor cat, make sure the vet checks for ear mites.  Dac’s ears were filled with ear mites and after she got medicine they were gone.  Dac’s ears are now clean and ear mite free.  Ear mites are extremely contagious so it is important to check outdoor cats regularly.

There you go: head, ears, nose, and eyes, nose and eyes.
