Causes Of Eye Problems In Cats

Stray Kitten Found With Eye Problem 

The kitten that I found on the farm a few weeks ago has reappeared but his left eye looks clouded over. If I can catch the kitten I will take him to the vet, but I don’t hold out much hope of catching him as he is very nervous of humans and I only managed to get these photographs from a distance.
