My sweet new kitten Zoey has a vet appointment for a week from tomorrow for her vaccinations; it’s a little overdue but was the best I could get (I called for an appointment as soon as I adopted her; several vets here are not taking new clients, it seems that there is a shortage of animal care as well as human care).
Anyway, her left eye seems a bit weepy and irritated. I don’t know what caused it. I called the vet as soon as I could and begged to bring her in sooner than 8 days but they said it’s impossible (and their hours are pretty damn long - 8 am to 7 pm weekdays and partial days on Saturday as well).
The eye isn’t too bad looking and she doesn’t act like she’s in any distress, but is there anything I can do at home while waiting for the vet? I suspect not, since no one can diagnose her and know whether the problem is an irritant, an infection, or what.
I’ll wipe away the gook and keep my fingers crossed, but if anyone has any better ideas, please chime in. Thanks in advance.
