Is my cat sick?

by Simone
(Cedar Rapids, IA)

My 1 year old male neutered cat (indoor only) recently started getting a runny nose, one ear has accumulated a lot of ear wax (but not the other), and one of his eyes is leaking. I don't know whether he is sick, or if I need to take him to the vet or what? Please let me know what you think! Thanks!

Answer by Kate
yes take him to the vets as soon as you can. It sounds like he has an infection which will need treatment. The vet will also be able to determine the cause of the infection i.e if it was caused by parasites or a virus.

I hope the vet can help him out quickly and that he is back to his old self soon.

best wishes Kate
