Hello Jane, I'm Dr. Deb.
I recently came online and see that your question about Bailey hasn't been answered. I'm so sorry that you've had to wait for a response,but if you still need assistance, I'd like to help if I can.

I do have a few additional questions to ask about him first if you don't mind:

1. Is he an inside only cat?
2. Can you tell me the color of his gums?
3. Can you shine a light in his eyes and tell me what the pupils do? Does he appear to have vision
4. Does he walk like a drunken sailor (if you can tell since he's not moving much)?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
