Hi all! Very new here and a fairly new cat owner. I guess I should give background before I go into my question.
About a 3 weeks ago, my boyfriend and I came across a shivering kitten in an a construction site, leaky eyes and heart-breakingly thin and dirty. He insisted we take him in. No mother was around the few times we checked so I agreed, wrapped him in my coat, against my chest, and there he slept the way home.
He saw a vet about 2 days later. Was ridden with fleas, worms and was aged at about 2 months, max, weighing about 1lb. Now, at 1.5lbs, de-fleaed, dewormed (as is my dog who caught them) and playful as heck as well as bossy (he argues with me), he was doing well until last night, when we noticed his right eye was swollen and leaking green gunk. Now he had yellow/white gunk in both eyes when we first got him and the vet said there was no infection and it wasn't uncommon for strays to have such a thing. Even then, his eyes weren't swollen. After googling, I get that I should take him to a vet but my question is really...can he wait till tomorrow or do I need to get him to an emergency clinic? He doesn't seem to be in any pain, isn't rubbing or acknowledging the eye and is as playful as ever, if that makes any difference.
I'm sorry if this sounds like a lame or silly set of questions but it's really my first cat and I'm more used to dealing with dogs.
Thanks in advance!
