Well, his third eyelid was showing a tiny bit earlier and it was red, but it looks a lot better now.
Its happened to him once before, after digging ferociously in his litter box, and that time, thankfully, he was better before the night was over (I was back home then and away from our regular vet).
No more showing third eyelid, area around the eye doesn't look so red anymore. Still a little watery, but this is clear liquid. He still squints it a little when he turns to look at me (the lamp is on behind me and he would be looking at it to look at me), but he doesn't appear to be squinting when looking away from the lamp.
This was saline solution and not contact solution, correct? I wear contacts, but I don't keep plain saline solution around...maybe I should. It would be useful if I got something in my eye too.
Billy's a lilac-point, so his color is a sort of greyish-pink around his face. He's had an eye infection before for sure, but sometimes his eye will look a tiny bit pink around it, and I can't tell if its a problem or not. He had some white goopy in his eye his morning, but he's always got goopies (usually dark, but I think the white stuff darkens as it gets older). The vet says the eye goopies are normal, at least the dark ones.
Argh, I can't tell if he's got an eye problem, or if its normal stuff and just coincidental timing!! Billy's my "problem child" - I'm always agonizing over taking him to the vet, but most of the time, if I do take him in, there's nothing wrong with him.
He's my little hypochondriac kitty...
