I have bathed it in warm salt water - is that ok ?

Hi yolo

How old is the kitten and do you only have the one?

I'm wondering whether it could be the start of a chlamydia infection. Does it sounds like this?

No way you can get to a vet tomorrow? I believe Pets at Home do Sunday surgeries if you have one near you.

Cold tea is better than salt water as the tannins in tea are anti inflammatory.

Useful to know, Lone. Thanks.

It doesn't sound like it as with Conjunctivitis their would be gunk/snot in the eye and its just red and swollen though I honestly don't know .

No possible way I can get to the vet tomorrow as I'm in the middle of nowhere without transport

Will bathe it in cold tea for now & get him to the vets first thing Monday

I only have 1 kitten smile & my other cats seem to be fine thanks
