Watery-eyed kitten: How urgent is this?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just got an itty bitty kitty today - Probably about six or seven weeks old. One of her eyes is watery. She shows no other signs of distress, is eating, drinking, and curious as all get out - She's completely normal, aside from the watery eye. It doesn't seem pus-y, discolored, smelly, or gross to the touch - Just like she's about to cry.

I see it could be anything from "nothing" to "really really bad" -- How urgent of a vet visit is this?

Probably best that she doesnt have any contact with your other cats until you can have her seen. The sooner the better IMO, if you let it go a few more days it could be harder to treat.

And if it turns out not to be serious you can start kitten shots.

Dangit, I had a big ole reply typed out, and then Miku decided to freeze my computer by turning wifi on and off a hundred times with her itty bitty paws

Keeping her away from the rest of the family has been hit or miss. My other cats consistently demand to know WHY you have closed a door and WHEN you will be opening it. They're so nosy!

Her appointment's in 90 minutes. She's sneezed a few times, so it seems like she's got a case of the sniffles. Either way, I'm looking forward to taking my little gal to the vet. I just want to show her off, carry her around and go LOOK! MY KITTY IS PRETTY!!
