Kittens eyes watering

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. My kittens turned two weeks old Sunday and I have noticed that their eyes are constantly watering. Momma cat licks their eyes-she even wakes them up to lick their eyes. Is this a problem I should start worrying about? When Momma lets me I take a soft tissue with water on it and wipe their eyes.(their eyes opened 3 days ago) I use a different tissue for each eye in case it is contagious.
Can someone give me advice as to what to do?
Thanks,
Valeri

All the kittens eye's are doing it? What about momma's? If you know who the dad is, is his eyes?
Are they sneezing? Coughing? Any other symptoms?

3 of the kittens eyes(out of 6) The mothers right eye is watery. The Mother sneezes but not frequently and she coughs when she has a hairball
When she coughs, weezes she always lets go with a hairball.

If the kittens aren't sneezing, coughing, or have nasal discharge, it might be one of two things.

1. Somehow, all three kittens and momma got an eye infection, which is possible, and requires antibiotics, eye ointment, and cleaning with a cottonball with warm water on it.

2. They have what CJ, Billy, and my kittens have. It is a NON-HARMFUL, non-contagious to humans, and no need to worry about form of herpes of the eye. Every now and then my kittys will get what looks like an eye infection, and then it'll go away. If it starts to build up, I just wipe their eyes with a cottonball with warm water on it. It's no worrysome matter.

The best advice I can give is to keep an eye on their eyes (no pun intended) and keep it clean by wiping it as I stated above. If it starts to get bad and get infected, you need to take your kitty to the vet to get some antibiotics and eye ointment. If it goes away, marvelous, if it comes back, occasionally, then your kitty has what my kitties have.
