I noticed a freckle in my cat's eye about 6 months ago. I didn't go to the vet until this weekend to have it checked out, because I started researching on the internet, which freaked me out.
They really couldn't tell me much, because they're not trained specifically for ophthalmology, so I'm being referred to a specialist.
Basically, this freckle in her eye could be cancer. Especially if the freckle is raised and dimensional, it's a malignant growth, called Iris Melanoma. Zoey's freckle is definitely dimensional.
At this point, I can't say 100% that she's got cancer, but I've got a flair for the dramatic, so I'm just going to assume it's so. I'm taking her in to be checked as soon as I can, and I know it's going to be expensive. Worst case, she'll be a one-eyed cat in the future.
My poor bean. She is still just a baby :(
