I finally saw what caused Ricky's eye to get all gunky and swollen. There was a tiny cut in his lower eyelid. It could have been caused by the kitten, outdoors on a branch... who knows? His eye was very red so I hadn't seen the cut until two days ago, when it appeared more pink and healthier. It is still slightly swollen and some crusty gunk is still there, but nothing like before. What I'm concerned about now, is the loss of pigment on this eye rim. It's not all black anymore, but splotchy pink and black.
Does anyone know if this is permanent? Should I still get it checked, although it's obviously on the mend? Today the cut hardly shows.
