hi there
My cat Ash has always had watering eyes, but for the last few days there has been an excessive amount of liquid coming out of his left eye. He is not able to open his eye right now, and usually he is a very vocal cat, but today he is hiding and not talking either!!!!! Any ideas?

I know basically squat about cat health, but if he can't open his eye and with that much of a behaviour change I am thinking that a vet visit is a must.

Good luck, and hope they can fix your kitty up soon!

I would also recommend a vet visit. Eye problems are nothing to mess with. Could be the herpes virus is acting up, could be a problem with tear ducts, could be some kind of irritation, but your kitty clearly feels uncomfortable if he's hiding. Best to get that looked at before it gets any worse.
