In a post on the cat’s personal Instagram, the owner shared about how the Jazzypurrs lost their sight very sadly. The owner wrote: “Writing for those who don’t know the story of Jazzypurrs, I adopted the cat when I was about 2 years old and quite healthy. After a few years, the doctor diagnosed the cat with the herpes virus. Then in November/ In 2013, he suffered a corneal ulcer in his right eye. The condition was so bad that surgical removal was the only option. However, Jazzypurrs was still a happy, healthy cat despite only one eye. Until approx. In September 2018, the cat had a corneal ulcer in the other eye and again had to choose to have it removed. Jazzypurrs was completely blind but he soon adapted. In April 2019 he suffered a mild stroke. It’s hard to figure out what’s going to happen next.”
