Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
Hello, Kathy, The skin over Kronos's eyes are his third eyelids, which normally are hidden in the corners of the eyes. When a cat is sick, especially with digestive problems, they will partially cover their eyes with the third eyelids; we don't know why.It can also be a sign of an eye problem such as an eye infection, or a scratched cornea.If his "messy poop" is diarrhea, that might be the reason his eyes are like this. If you treat the diarrhea, his eyes will probably go back to normal. Diarrhea can be from parasites, infection, or something he ate that disagreed with him. I would have a stool sample checked for parasites, treat for any parasites that are seen, and get diarrhea medication from your veterinarian.Please let me know what other questions you have.
You are welcome! Thanks for the great rating!
