Older Cats Eyes Are Always Dilated. Anyway i figured she belonged to someone because she was very fat or she was pregnant so i asked. However, the event is still serious and requires immediate attention.
My cat's eyes appear to have become more dilated slowly over the last 6 months. Anyway i figured she belonged to someone because she was very fat or she was pregnant so i asked. Cats have evolved to hide signs of illness and pain.
I had not thought much about it because it has been very gradual, but the last time i was at the vet they asked me about her eyes.
She has always had very striking big eyes. Determining blood pressure is very important since hypertension is common in cats and is a common cause of retinal disease and blindness. We have the dogs and cats separated now. Given the age of your cat i would evaluate her for pain, and treat appropriately.
