Customer Question

My cat has been very itchy lately and his eyes have been bothering him as well, running and itchy as well. I thot it had cleared up but then yesterday he was scratching a lot again. This morning I noticed that I can hardly see the blue of his eye because of a marked cloudiness and a slight bump in the middle of the eye. Any idea if this is an infection or what might be the cause? I'm convinced the eye was clear yesterday.

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Sunny's eye. Can you possibly post a picture of it here?

If the clear part of the eye, the cornea, appears cloudy and if you are seeing a bump on the eye this could be serious. He may have a scratch or wound on the cornea, and these can get infected or even rupture.

I am a big fan of medicinal honey, but would not recommend putting it on an eye.
