This report describes a 14-year-old neutered male Norwegian Forest cat that was evaluated for a complaint of inappetence, lethargy, and ocular protrusion with third eyelid prolapse. The systemic blood pressure was elevated at 205/129 mmHg. Fundic examination revealed severe retinal hemorrhage in both eyes. Based on an ultrasound study of the retrobulbar area, a thrombus caudal to the right globe was suspected. Over 18 days, the cat exhibited significant clinical improvement as well as good blood pressure control. To our knowledge this is the first report of a retrobulbar thrombus in a cat with systemic hypertension.
