hi... I'm writing bc my cat had kittens and they are two weeks old the one had a hard time opening his eyes.. Now that they are open I think he has pink eye.. They are always crusted shut and I use a warm cloth to open them and they seem pretty red.. I don't know what to do.. I don't really have the money for a vet is there anything I can do? Help please

Hi
well as you probably realize if you can get the kitten to the vet it would be best. Kittens this young can pick up all sorts of viruses etc and if left untreated can cause permanent problems. So if you can get him to see a vet the better the outcome.

I have a page about cat eye problems which you may find of further help here

Keep the eye clean as much as possible in the meantime.

best wishes Kate
