It is quite normal for a cat to sometimes leave their eyes open or partially open during sleep. For cats, their sleep consists of two basic phases: Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep, when dreams occur, and Non-REM (NREM) or deep sleep.

I guess it's...
True that! I spend about USD$80 each cat.. grooming cost, checkup is very costly from where i'm from. I sometimes cook my cat's food than buying commercial grade ones (saves money). I can't argue, they are such beauties!
Owning a cat is more of a choice than a decision. If you've made your choice - you won't be minding the transition and all that whatever comes in your way. I hope you'll be fine though. It takes some real dedication and if getting hurt is one of those things, you have to be prepared.
