Should I try to re-locate my blind outdoor kitty (16) into my home with two other cats?

This kitty was born to a feral Siamese in my neighborhood about 16 years ago.  She has always been extremely reclusive, coming out from her hiding place only to eat.  In the past 6 months, she appears to be losing her vision, bumping into things and moving very cautiously.  I want to bring her indoors, but have a 1 1/2 year old neutered male and his 2 1/2 year old mom inside.  I don't want to further traumatize her.  She loves for me to pet her and I love petting her!

    Regardless, it certainly sounds like she should be taken to a vet first of all.

    Thanks for your comment.  And I have taken her to my vet who gave her a good bill of health except for "some impairment in her vision."  But may consult again before making the decision to bring her  in.

    What did the vet say that might could be done, if anything to help with her vision, any supplements, change of diet, anything at all?

    She's inside now and adjusting to being an "inside" kitty!  I know I'm a lot happier, just hope she is, and she seems to be - purring, eating well, drinking well, and doing "business" in the right place!
