red, puffy eye

April 21st, 2006, 05:06 PM
I noticed this morning my momma cat has a red, swollen eye almost swollen shut, I though maybe she had been scratched by one of the kittens. Then this afternoon I noticed that one of the kitties eyes is shut completely, but not red or anything just looks like it is shut :sick
If anyone has any advice on what to do until I can get them in the vet It would be much appreciated.

The vet is the only answer to this.

If more than one has it, it might be something contagious... :eek: I hope you're going to the vet soon. Good luck.

I really hope you take your cat (kittens) to the vet. Let us know the results.:pawprint:

It's probably pink eye or an upper respiratory infection and they need antibiotic eye drops and/or oral antibiotic. If it is either of these, it is contagious and all the rest will get it too. You can get the eye drops in most pet stores in town or online, sometimes you can get antibiotics too. Take them to the vet and he or she will be able to give you a better idea of what the problem is and the best way to cure it.
