Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your kitten is having such strange behavior. Based on your history, I would wonder if Babou has something that is causing his eye to be painful. Possibilities include a scratch to his cornea, foreign material in his eye (such as a piece of grass or small insect) or conjunctivitis. I would recommend taking him to see your regular veterinarian to have his eye evaluated.
They will likely place drops in the eye to make it numb so that he does not fight the eye exam. Then they will recommend a corneal stain as well as look under the lids for debris. Once they determine the cause of the eye pain, they will recommend eye drops for treatment.
Best regards, ***** ***** this answer helps you.
