Really? I did consider them having bad eyesight, but Wonton seems to know when she's on the edge of the table or couch and would stop and "inspect". If she's on my lap, she would do the same thing, but she knows she is not too far from the couch and it is safe to slowly slide down.

I suppose they do have poor eyesight, but they are not so poor that they are nearly blind?
