I took Train back to the vet today because he had a swollen eye. They wiped him off and forced his eyes open, causing lots of liquid escape. I guess. I was looking the other way at that point because I'm squeamish.

Anyway. This doesn't actually mean he can see now. But his face is a lot cleaner and not swollen, although his eyes are very, very pink. Vet says he has conjunctivitis. Apparently for cats, this can be a life-long thing. I asked if he would always be blind and they said it was uncertain but maybe, possibly. They used 'kamoshirenai'... does anyone know what kind of likelihood that indicates precisely? I've always associated a 20%-30% chance of something happening (or not) with that word, so...

I'm exhausted. Heading to the supermarket now.

The way I was taught was that kamoshirenai is anything below 50%, and darou is above 50%, but that both tend to go to the side furthest away from the middle, so darou is closer to maybe 70-90%, and kamoshirenai is closer to 20-30%, like you say. :) So it sounds like a small chance, which is good! ^__^

Thanks. :) I kinda hoped someone would tell me I was wrong and it was a 50% chance or something. ^^ But a small chance is okay! Better than nothing!

Thanks again!
