Hello, thank you for the update on Fahrer and the pictures. He is a gorgeous fellow!

I am sorry to hear that he has kidney disease and that led to hypertension, retinal bleeding and blindness. I can see by his dilated pupils and the reddish color in his pupil the effects. Hopefully with treatment he will be more comfortable. Many indoor kitties acclimate well to loss of vision, learn to memorize their surroundings, and in some cases people that are unaware cannot tell they are blind they get around so well. I hope that is the case for him. My best to your fellow, I truly appreciate the follow-up.
