Help! My adult cat has developed a strange cloudy white covering ont the inner corners of her eyes. Princess is about 3 years old and until recently has been an indoor cat. Unfortunately, about 4 months ago she got out and became pregnant. Her babies are now 9 weeks old. What is this condition and what can I do about it? I have started to put polysporin in her eyes.

I have an additional problem with one of her kittens. It seems to have small bumps on her head. What could these be and can anything be done dto cure this problem.

Thanks for you greatly anticipated assistance.

Cats have a membrane, or "third eyelid" in the inside corner of the eye.

When it is showing all the time, this is sometimes indication of illness.

You need to take your cat and the kitten with the bumps to the vet, and to get the mother spayed. The longer you leave your cat unspayed and enduring repeated heat periods, the greater her chances for becoming sick. Constant heats deplete cats. Your cat has suffered heats for 3 years and lately had the added burden of pregnancy, giving birth and raising a litter.

Please don't put anything in your cat's eyes until you have consulted the vet.
