I rescued a kitten the other day, around 5 weeks old who is blind. She was born without eyeballs. We had her tested and she does not have feline leukemia or AIDS. I have been keeping her in a crate in my room, away from the other cats. Of course I also take her out and play with her / have her lay with me on my bed and let her roam around the room. I have a couple of questions:
1. Is there anything special I should know about raising a blind kitten? I have already read about keeping everything in the same place, esp her litter box, food and water and showing her where things are.
2. I have 4 other cats..all adults and a couple of them pretty big. What would be the best way to introduce this little kitten to the rest of the cats?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
