This warrants an immediate vet visit. Ask for a sliding scale or see if they have a free care fund, set up a Go Fund Me, Google free clinics in your town, something so the cat's pain can be resolved and to save it's vision.

Sending up prayers for you and the kit. Please give a status update. Good luck!

It is almost the weekend and vets are usually not available on Saturday or Sunday so unless you take the cat to the vet tomorrow (Friday) you will probably have to wait until Monday or Tuesday of next week. You need to have some sort of plan of action before then and you need to try and help relieve the suffering of this kitten.


  • There are several home remedies that you can try until you make arrangements to see a vet.
  • Clean eye as best you can. Mix up a saline solution, by combining ½ cup warm water and ½ tsp salt. Stir vigorously and apply the solution to your cats eye using a cotton ball and gently wiping the area.
  • You can clean the cats eye by putting a drop or two of milk in them. It relieves irritation generally and helps clear the eyes, both for cats and humans. You can also use tea.
  • There are several medications that may help temporarily. I suggest you go to PetSmart and ask about some of these products.
  • You can check out some of the suggestions on these links and maybe do something to help until you can see a vet.
  • Here is a site that offers some licks to check for financial help but these requests take time and this kitten needs help now.

PLEASE/PLEASE get this cat to the vet, I know it will be expensive, ask if you can pay monthly, or set up a "Go Fund" on line, I certainly would donate a little and you will find others will too, especially if you put the photo of the suffering cat on where others can see it. Don't let this poor animal suffer any longer !!!

Contact the SPCA immediately. Your cat can go blind

This kitty needs to be seen immediately. You can take it to your local humane society and surrender it. The kitten will be cared for and put up for adoption. Just make sure your shelter or rescue is a no kill shelter. The kitten will most likely lose the eye. He is already blind in that eye. Dogs and cats with one eye do very well, and the operation is no big deal.


It will be a huge relief to this cat. But you must get him to a Vet immediately. Bless you for stepping in to help this little guy. Remember you cant save the eye. But the infection could easily spread and could be fatal. Let us know

I found 5 kittens after mother cat was hit by a car. 2 of the kittens eyes are cleared up, 1 kitten died, 1 has an eye that looks like this one. The other kittens eyes are stuck shut. Will the 2 get better?
