Cat's eye is swollen shut?!

OK not swollen shut, but its swollen and much more closed than normal (or the other eye). There is no redness, no discharge, no obvious scratches, bruises or marks.

He doesn't seem to be bothered by it, but he's a total oddball cat so its difficult to tell whats normal behaviour and whats abnormal. However, I havent seen him fussing with it or favouring it at all.

Any ideas? I just noticed it last night before bed and will of course take him to the vet if it seems worse today...but at the moment I'm just curious if anyone has any suggestions.

Maybe there is something under the lid irritating the eye. Vet time.:thumbs up
