Juno is a feral cat about 18 months. She never lets me pick her up and she will not sit on my lap. She does sleep in bed with me. I can pet her but only at arms length and mainly in bed or in the morning in the bathroom. Thats it. She has a runny eye. This is something I've always dreaded, her being ill. I can't even catch her to take her to the vet for treatment. She has had all her vacinations, but only because my grandson crawls under the beds for her. I am not in shape to hunt her down. I have the antiobiotic for her eye but can't trick her into letting me apply it. I've tried treats, and the flea comb which she likes, no fleas but she likes being combed but again at arms length. If I get too close she runs. This is the second day the eye is bad. I'm going to call the vet in the AM, maybe she can recommend something. I know she loves me, she follows me room to room. She's watching me type this now. She was 3mo. when she was rescued from outdoors but never trusted anyone. I don't know what to do with her. I'm going to take the meds in the bathroom tonight and maybe in the morning I'll be able to apply it to her eye. If this works I'll only be able to trick her once a day not the 3 times it should be applied. My other cat always has runny eyes, but she lets me apply the ointment. The vet said its some form of feline herpes. Anyone ever heard of this? All advice appreciated.
