The litter tray

dark 'sleep' by the eye

my cat has a fair bit of this the last few weeks. she seems fine and i don't see her rubbing her eyes etc. i have never had a cat before and possibly this is a summer thing for cats? i have noticed other cats with alot of this dark stuff by her eye. i try and wipe it away but she ain't having any of it, annoyingly. i also try and comb it away as she likes to have her face combed (!), it does go eventually by her cleaning her face. i just wondered. thanks

My cat gets this sometimes and my old cat used to get it alot. It's quite normal and nothing to worry about.

I found the best thing was to use damped kitchen paper and wipe it away when she's on my lap snoozing or being stroked.

thanks pinky although sadly, she WON'T let me clear it from her eyes, even if i catch her when she is in one of her snuggly mellow moods, i find that it goes after a day or too plus when i comb her i try (although unsuccessfully) to clear it as she likes having her face brushed..
