The daily hygiene of cats and babies. Sometimes, your cat’s eyes may get runny or weepy and a crust may form. If this crust is allowed to remain, it could block the tear ducts and become an infection. Consequently, it is important to know the proper way to clean your cat’s eyes in order to keep them healthy and infection-free.
Although your cat is very fastidious about personal grooming, he might need a little help around the eyes. Once every couple of days, dampen a soft washcloth with distilled water (room temperature), and gently wipe your cat’s eyes. This is especially helpful for breeds prone to “tear staining” (such as Persians), and may be done daily to help reduce the problem.
