My cats hate having eye boogers wiped away... I can't imagine trying to get contact lenses into their eyes!

It would probably be difficult at first, but once the cat started conecting the process to being able to see, it would probably not struggle as much!!

I know this is a very old post, but I was just wandering around and noticed it, so it gave me a chuckle remembering one of my first jobs. I was working for a patent law firm in Boston, and one of the first patent applications I worked on was for red contact lenses for chickens!!

Apparently, if a chicken sees blood, it will peck at it, so whenever there was a chicken injury, the whole pen would turn into a blood bath. They discovered that if you put red lenses in the chickens' eyes, they won't see the blood to peck at it. A few years after that, I remember seeing a magazine article about using them for horses, but I can't remember what for.

You think it would be tough trying to put a lense in a cat's eye? Try putting them in for chickens! Wonder what that job pays. LOL! Very Happy
