“The Eyes Are The Windows To The Soul” Part II: My Unsolved Mystery

Hi Everyone!!

Today I am participating in the:

Visit Zoolatry for more Unsolved Mysteries!

Many of you who will read this are regular followers of my blog, but because I am participating with A LOT of kitties, some of you don’t know me! Perish the thought!

For those who don’t, I am Dakota,  the brother of Cody from Cat Chat.  Mom wanted to take part with everyone else who is going to share their “Unsolved Mysteries” today, (the brain child of Zoolatry), but the biggest “mystery” in Cody’s world was about a month ago when he wouldn’t poop, and THAT, thankfully was solved!

My “mystery” hasn’t been solved!

Can YOU help?

Here’s the scoop:  ooops….living with  Cody a little cat jargon snuck in,  I said “scoop” get it? BOL!  But I digress, back  in November Mom wrote about a problem I was having with my eyes. For those of you who didn’t see the post you can read about it here. To put it in a nutshell,  I couldn’t open my eye  for a few hours and I appeared to be in discomfort.  It was a Sunday and Mom and Dad rushed me to the emergency vet (after having called another emergency vet first who put the fear of God in Mom, telling her if she didn’t get me in to see someone within two hours I could LOSE MY EYE!)

Since  our regular vet is closed on Sundays Mom and Dad took me to a different emergency vet that is closer to my home.  They did a bunch of tests and they said I was a super good boy, what else would they expect? Geeze, and they sent us home with eye drops.

The eye drops did help my eye and I was able to open it right up!

The next morning Mom and Dad took me to my regular vet, (“Dr.Smiley”),  and he gave me a thorough check-up.

"This table doesn't seem to be too high, maybe I should jump?"

"Look into my eyes!"


"I love you too "Dr.Smiley", wanna nice big, treat-scented kiss?"


The  check-up went well,thankfully, but nobody seems to know why I couldn’t open my eye for HOURS!? This remains to date my “unsolved” mystery. Have any of you had a similar experience?  If you have, please  tell us in the comments below, Mom loves to find new things that she can worry about.


Barks and licks and love, Dakota
