Milo is not a well kitty today

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 


Woke up this morning to find Milo not his usual self, then we noticed his third eye closed halfway across. After doing the usual search on the web for such problems it seems there could be two or three reasons for this. I am taking him to the vets at 12.00 today so I hope its not serious. From what I have read sometimes it can just clear itself after a few weeks, he is not being sick or anything. Anybody else had a similar problem with thier cats?

Milo is verrrrrry handsome! Is he the one who fetches pencils? That is so neat.

I haven't seen that problem in my cats. I'm sure the vet will be able to help. Is it just one eye, or both?

Thanks all! Well I have just got back with him and the vet gave him a good check. It seems his glands in his neck are slightly swollen, and he has a bit of a high temperature, possibly a throat infection. She gave him an antibiotic injection, yes Beandip he is the one that fetches pencils, and last night he showed no interest in doing it, believe it or not he is now jumping around the kitchen and purring.


Thanks for all your vibes.

Thanks again, apparently when they get this closing up of the third eye its like an early warning that the animal is not well. Clever stuff eh?

I am glad that he got a good report, I am sending hugs and prayers from Mississippi for him.

I hope he continues to recover.

He is beautiful too.

I confess my ignorance on what a third eye is. I have been here looking at the picture of your handsome cat trying to figure out what that means. Hope he feels better soon.

Milo is a beautiful boy.

Two of our cats...Gracie and Lizzie, both have Feline Herpes and I always know when one of them is going to have an outbreak because before they ever start to cough or sneeze their third eyelid will be visible.
I'm not saying that Milo has Feline Herpes, I'm just saying that you're right...when the third eyelid is visible it's a sign that they're not feeling well.

I'm glad that the injection helped and Milo is feeling better.

Maybe this will help explain it Persi, and you would have not spotted anything in the picture of Milo becaus that was taken when he was feeling ok
