| || | Sick kitty question
I have two kitties born to one of my barn cats; they are about 6 weeks old. They seem to have an infection in their eyes. I know I'm asking for an online 'diagnosis,' but any help would be greatly appreciated ... we went through a period of time when both eyes (on both kittens) were matted shut. I'd wash them w/ warm water and they'd be okay. Well, yesterday, I went out and both of them have one eye that looks swollen & matted. When I wash them, they open up some but almost look bloody. I can't see they eye and the lid area is bright red. I apologize to all the cat lovers, but I'm not going to take them to the vet ... too many barn cats, too little $$$. But, I'm wondering if there's something available over-the-counter that might help.
