    If it's any consolation I think you're going to hear a lot of these stories. You aren't alone. Jake got his eye scratched by our cat when he was just a few months old. After a couple of hours I noticed he was having a problem opening his eye. Immediately took him to ER. The cat had scratched his cornea (vet said it was good the cornea was not actually punctured). Came home with antibiotics and drops for a couple of weeks. It healed perfectly with no lasting problems. Everyone said "I'll bet her leanred his lesson" ....nope, he was still very interested in playing with KT. KT has since passed away (she had lymphoma and we knew she didn't have long) and we waited to get Shelby so we didn't have to deal with this problem.

    Hope he's okay. Let us know.

    Thank you all for your words of encouragement. It truly helps me through this.

    I just came back from the Pet Hospital. Kingston is in the hands of a certified animal opthamologist who works exclusively with eyes. It turns out that Kingston's cornea was punctured. The doctor does not think the lens has been damaged, which is good news. However, the hole in the cornea has to be repaired through surgery. Kingston will have the surgery this afternoon and if all goes well I can pick him up tomorrow morning.

    I hope I'm making the right choices here. I felt confident in this doctor (I usually get bad vibes from vets, but not this time). The cornea basically has a hole in it, and I don't see how there is any other option but to surgically stitch it back up.

    They let me spend a few minutes alone with Kingston before I left him. He just licked my face and cuddled in my arms and let out the biggest sigh. I couldn't help but burst into tears. Please pray that his beautiful little eye (the one you can see in my avatar) will be okay.

    It sounds like he is in very good hands, but I know the whole thing has to be very disconcerting. How unfortunate that that happened

    Thoughts and prayers with your little boy, and hoping he makes a full and speedy recovery.

    Please keep us posted!

    Maxx also suffered at the claws of a cat He was extremely lucky not to lose his eye as the claw punctured it and also went through the lens. His eyeball was pouring with blood . Opthamologists can do wonders you know and though it took six months of treatment for Maxx's eye to heal and he has a 'cloudy' eye, he is fine now.

    Please try and keep your spirits up, thinking of you and little Kingston xxxxx

    Chester and I will keep our fingers and paws crossed for Kingston's full receovery! I'm really sorry this happened to your baby and it just makes me like cats even less than I already do.

    Sorry if I offend the nice cats out there, but the majority of cats I and Chester have ever met have been grumpy, defensive curmudgeons. I jsut wish I could meet a nice sweet kitty that didn't want to claw the crap out of my dog and then perhaps I would start to warm to the feline species.

    Best of luck to you and give Kingston kisses from me and Chester!

    How scary for you but I feel sure he'll be okay. Good thing you took him to an opthamologist!!! We'll be praying for him tonight. I know it just breaks your heart doesn't it? Both of mine have been through serious surgeries and it was so terrifying. They both came through them just fine though. I cried...mostly with relief...when I got to bring him home. Try to get some rest so you can spent your time canoodling with him when you bring him home. Hugs!

    And poor Maxxy baby. Must have scared you to death Donna!

    God Bless little Kingston and mom too! I know it must be heartwrenching to leave your baby but you are doing everything you can for the little guy. He's fortunate to have such a caring mom, sometimes accidents happen I'm praying that he's better soon!
