I was checking up on Ink today. She hasn't been out in a few days, so I offered her a crab which she rejected. Later, I saw she had come out and had eaten the crab, but the new discovery is her left eye is white. I observed her rubbing it with her arm. Is this a cataract? Do Octopus's suffer from cataracts as seasenance (?) kicks in?

Well, the same thing happened to zoidberg before he died and L S's cuttlefish is also having the same problem. So I guess the end is nearing. :frown:
