Nahum has been having some discharge from one of his eyes now for the past few days. Since it seems to be getting worse, we decided to take him over to the vet to get checked out. They didn't find any foreign objects or scratches, so that is good. We have some magic ointment now that we get to apply twice a day.
Poor guy, he looks rather uncomfortable, with his eye partially closed and discharge oozing out. After the vet trip his eye is quite swollen. He seems a little less energetic and more skittish than usual.
I just want to scoop him up and hold him telling him everything is going to be all-right, but he would hate that! He only likes to be cuddled on his terms.
Max used to get eye infections somewhat regularly and it was always difficult to see him suffer. It is hard watching a cat you love suffer, even if in a minor way. Hopefully, the ointment does the trick for Nahum and he is back to 100% before too long.
