Puffy eyes

Customer Question

Hi I've just got an older cat and given her a new home at ours. She's a lovely little affectionate thing but it's just her eyes, the inner corner is all red and a little swollen and there's a constant discharge, not matter how much you wipe and clean it comes back maybe as little as half an hour later! It's such a shame. I need to make an appointment with my local vet but unfortunately they're closed on weekends.

Also another this it's almost as if she has the cold as she sneezes from time to time previous owners said it was hay fever nut I'm not convinced

Thanks Abi

JACUSTOMER-vlzl99x7- : Squinty isn't the word I would use per say, more sort of half closed most of the unless she has noticed something?!
