hey guys!! my cat was doing fine but all of sudden, today evening i noticed his right eye was shut. i tried to put some drops in it, but he did not allow me to. he is now not eating and is getting aggresive if i try to pick him up.  Sad  is it something serious or will it heal?? should i leave him alone to rest ??

When cats do not eat and are grouchy :twisted:  when handled it is a sign that something maybe wrong.  :roll: A quick vet visit is recommended, better to be safe I always say :paw: Usually anything wrong is healed more quickly the faster it is treated! :up: Good luck and sending well wishes for your Furbaby! :lick:

The vet may give you an ointment that could prevent an infection that could scar the eye and damage kittys vision.

And not eating for an eye wound and  :evil: mad kitty is not normal for an eye problem and worries me greatly.

Hi Nester,  sorry to hear about your kitty's eye problem.  It doesn't sound good when you combine the closed eye with the fact that he isn't eating and is getting aggressive.  I think Snowball needs to go to the vet so that you nip the problem in the bud and that things don't get out of hand or deteriorate further.  Hope your kitty will be fine.

I too have a cat under a year old that has an eye problem, but it didn't make her angry or not eat. The vet put her on a medication because he thought she had gotten scratched it was a whitish patch that was raised in the upper part of the eye. One ointment was an antibiotic the other was to take the swelling down, and an oral antibiotic. It helped take some of that swelling down but I can still see that whitish patch just not as raised. But she still was having a problem with tearing and not opening her eye up all the way. Took her back in and he looked and now an ulcer. So we treated that with atrophine to stop discomfort, liquid antibiotic Clavamox, and terramycin. It really didn't change much with the eye opening up more fully or the tearing, but got rid of the ulcer. She has been on the lycine too. I am so frustrated because it has costed so much trying to straighten out this eye. One vet says it is conjunctivitis, the other says just a bug to maybe it is herpies, they keep treating really not knowing what the true diagnosis is yet I am paying for things that are not working. It doesn't seem right.  I am now trying the salt water treatment per home remedies, and someone told me about cammomile tea.  Before there were vets of human doctors there were home remedies. Any suggestions? I have this cat with the problem and a baby kitten born two weeks ago that the one eyelid isn't open like the other. The are from different mothers and fathers.
