What do I do if my kitten has eye goobers?

Our barn cats had kittens about eight weeks ago. The problem is, one of the kittens has severe problems with eye goobers. His eyes are always covered over in the morning with boogers, and I don’t know what to do to solve this issue. None of the other kittens seem to have any goober trouble. What is a good way to get rid of the nasty eye troubles?

The kitten probably has an eye infection, which is not uncommon among outdoor farm kitties. The only thing that will cure the infection is an antibiotic ointment that you will have to get from a vet. Please take the kitten to the vet to get the appropriate treatment as soon as possible. Not doing so could lead to serious eye problems, and could also result in the infection being spread to your other cats.

make sure you always clean them out and maybe its allergic to something in the barn.

Sounds like eye infection, afraid you’ll need to take it to the vet. Meanwhile, for my cat, I would use a soft cloth soaked with lukewarm water to clean the eye area. It will temporarily help the kitty see better.

Take It To The Vet It May Have An Eye Infections(Poor Thing)I have A Cat And I Would Take It Right Now If I Were You
