Davidson's eye

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I was holding Davidson a bit ago, and I looked at his eyes, and I noticed something kinda funny.

Ok, you know when you are wearing contacts, and they fold up in your eye? Where you can see the contact? It looks like that on his eye, like there's something wrong. I checked out the other one, but it looks normal. It just looks like he has something in there.

Its not red, or swollen or anything, but I just noticed it today, any ideas on what it could be? I do want to take him to the vet to have it checked out, but I have to wait til John gets home with his paycheck, since I don't get my unemployment check til tomorrow or Friday

Any suggestions would be appreciated, I'm kinda worried

IS it his 3rd eyelid? Can you give your vet a call and see if it is something to worry about until you can get him in?

That might be it, but I've seen that before, and it doesn't quite look like that? Maybe it is, I'm not sure - I get worried for nothing sometimes, but its better to be safe than sorry

Have you looked at his eye in different lights, and from different angles? It might just look like that because his iris isn't uniformly colored.

Could just be an eye sleepy, Ya know that gunk you get in your eyes (I call 'em eye boogers) and maybe it just hasn't worked its way out of his eye yet?

Well, he's been sleeping all afternoon, (nothing new ) But I just checked him again, and its gone - maybe it was his 3rd eyelid? I was just a little nervous!

I checked again tonight and I still havent seen anything - he was rubbing his eye, and then I checked, but I didn't see anything odd.

I'm thinking it was just some mucous or a hair that eventually got blinked away. You're such an attentive Meowmy!

That could have been it... I've just been really lucky with both of my boys, never having any problems - I get worried when I see something strange!

That's a good thing. That's normal for a meowmy. Hopefully it's nothing!

I've had some of those "eye boogies" get long & thin on LuckyGirl's eye once or twice, I just gently rubbed her eye forcing her to "blink" it out....if that makes sense....it only took a few minutes and then it was close enough I could wipe it away....

You know how their hair always gets in our eyes? I wonder if OUR hair ever gets in THEIR eyes?
