Since my cat was hit by a bat by someone she has been blind in one eye. I figured out yesterday that he lost his sense of smell too. I couldn't figure out why he never went after the mouse we had in the house as he is my outdoor/indoor cat. Well I put some food out and realized that until the other cat went to eat he didn't. I tested it then after that with treats and realized that he can not smell. Poor thing is blind in one eye and can't smell yet still a wonderful cat.

why would someone hit ur cat with a bat? that's so sad to hear, but good that ur cat got a caring owner I dont think it will be any problem since you treat the cat nicely and not every owner would figure out that.

I hope that low life finds his own from the beating he did to that poor cat!! I wish I knew who did it for I'd be glad to take a bat to his head!! He's so lucky to have you to love and love him back!! Bless your sweet and thoughtful heart Tricia!!

My dog that can't smell either - He makes up for lack of a sense of smell by being able to beg incredibally well.
Poor thing. It must have been quite a transition for him to adjust to. At least, he has you to look after him and doesn't have to fend for himself with his injuries. I've often joked that my dog has almost no sense of smell, because he is terrible at finding food on the floor by scent, I usually have to point at it for him to find it, unless he saw it drop. I wonder how he made it on his own when he was a stray. Probably got by on his winning personality.

Oh how sad. Why in the world did someone hit your cat with a bat? I don't understand how people can be so cruel. I'll admit I've been upset at my critters at some time or another (no different than my kids!), but I could never be abusive like that.

What a poor baby! I feel bad for your kitty. Whoever hit your cat with a baseball bat needs to be hit themselves with one! My kitty is in the hospital right now with a fractured back leg my daughter shut the poor kitties leg in the door I get to bring her home tommorow.
