    Five weeks ago, my cat, Trixxie, had her first litter of five kittens. They've all had some goopiness/crusties in their eyes at one point or another, but only one continues to have it. When I wipe them, they get very wet soon afterward with clearish liquid, and there is also a considerable amount of green goop. Is she sick?

    Sounds like an eye infection. Probably need to see a vet to get optical antibiotics.

    Good luck

    yes she has a cold. very common with kittens not normally fatal, but contagous for the others. keep warm and besure she's eatting.

    I just had this in kittens I rescued. Terrimycin ointment is wha they gave me. The same stuff when my daughter had an infection. 2-3 times a day. they cleared up in about 3 days. hope all goes well & keep wiping with a warm cloth.
