Billy's got a funky eye again

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm not for sure, but Billy's right eyelid is looking a little pinkish, compared to its normal grey. If it is, he had the same problem with his left eye a few weeks ago, which cleared up with some antibiotics in about a week. He was being extra clingy yesterday, so I had been keeping an eye on him to see if he was just being weird, or if something was wrong. Today, there was a large amount of yellow goopy stuff coming out of his eye, and then I noticed it was slightly pink. I'm gonna keep an eye on him for the next day or so and see if it get worse, but has anyone heard of a chronic problem with this? Could it be allergies, or something in my house that's causing a recurrent infection? Thanks in advance for the help!

Sounds like it might be a URI, you better make an appointment with the vet to make sure!

I was starting to think it sounded like a URI too. He just looks like he's been feeling off-color, but I wanted to be sure. I'll try and make room in my schedule to bring him to the vet's tomorrow.

I'm thinking he might have gotten pretty stressed from the trip to my parents' house, and then with the cold front that just blew through, I guess it might have a little too much for him to handle. Does it usually take a few days for a cat to get a URI from stress?

Got back from the vet's earlier today - he says Billy's really stuffy upstairs, so he gets to take antibiotics for the next few days. Guess who's gonna be "mean mommy" for the next week or so?

Its a shame, my church was going to do pet blessings tomorrow, but I guess Billy is out. If getting stressed made him sick in the first place, stressing him out again probably isn't a good idea. The vet was awesome though, he talked all scientific to me while he was seeing Billy, which I love. I guess he figured since I was in grad school, I could understand. Little did he know my undergrad was done with the vet school!

Also - one thing I forgot to do with my kitty - he had an eye infection and I only treated the one eye. I probably should have done both - so your kitty probably reinfected himself. We did have quite a time getting those to go away - good luck!!!
