me and cooper

finally, a cat to match.
cooper is having some nerve problems and one eye is not working correctly. but his appearance sort of matches mine.
i was born without the ability to see out of both eyes at the same time. and my eyes were crossed as well, which was corrected with surgery. however as have gotten older they have tracked more and more poorly. you can see in this photo that my eyes are not looking in the same direction. my eye doctor has been pushing me to have surgery again, but i don't feel ready.
in the meantime cooper and i are keeping each other lopsided company. fortunately i am not also having trouble with my legs and paws like he is. cooper is my best cat-friend. he lives up the street and we have been good friends for years. he is not in any pain, is under a vet's care and so far he and gets over these episodes of nerve problems. he's a real sweetheart, but skittish.
