    Hi Benjamin’s Mommy, if there is no way of seeing a vet until Monday then the best advice I can give you is to gently wipe your kittens eye from the inner corner out with a used moist cooled teabag(no milk). You can use ordinary black tea or pure green tea(no fruit additives). Make sure it is cooled not chilled and keep it on a saucer while cooling so as to keep it clean. Do this every few hours. I hope that eases the eye until you can get your kitty to the vet.

    Yes, like MS said, since you can’t get to the vet until Monday, wiping the eye with a cooled teabag will definitely help. Also a warm damp cloth also to loosen the crustiness and remove it a few times a day. As long as you get your kitten to the vet soon for some antibiotic ointment and maybe antibiotics by mouth, he should be okay. Letting it go and thinking it will get better is not a good option as sometimes a kitten can lose an eye if you wait. I know this from experience, unfortunately. Good luck, and keep us posted!
