My mixed breed 2 year old cat has oink eye! I have given him an eye cream and it seems to be getting better. I would like to know what would cause it, he is an indoor declawed white cat. Thanks!

One of mine had conjunctivitis (Im not sure if thats the same thing as pink eye) and I had to put cream in her eyes to clear it up. Im guessing the cause of it was something got in her eyes and caused the irritation. In my case, I suspect it was catnip as my roomate had sprinkled some over her head a few days before I noticed her eye bothering her. Certain illnesses such as feline herpes can also cause it.

Ive heard pink eye is caused by bacteria getting in the eye and causing an infection. Im not sure tho because this came from a family member.

Conjunctivis is a catch all diagnose meaning the eye is red and inflammed. It can be caused by a lot of things such as irritation, bacteria, or viruses. It's hard to say for sure what caused it in your cat, although it was probably a bacteria.
