    My just under 1 year old Athena has had 3 days of goopy discharge from one of her eyes. The eye looks normal in every way; bright, focused, whites are white, both lids appear to be working fine and she doesn’t seem to even notice. All three of my kittens sometimes have crust in their corners I need to clean away but this is different. I just want to make sure I don’t over react or wait to long if there is a problem

    If you’ve been cleaning her eye and the goop comes back I think she needs to go to the vet. It is unusual for it to go on for 3 days without respite.

    I would at least make a call to the vet office and see what they say. It could be nothing, but there might be some sort of bacterial concern that you don’t possess the veterinary knowledge to diagnose. Better safe than sorry!
