it's always the same eye. i usually take really soft tissues and wipe the tears away and then she squints it until it tears up again, and then i wipe it again and it eventually clears up... Why does her eye do that?

I don't know Persephone's history, but most likely it's caused from one of two things. It is possible that she has a defect of the tear duct which she's had since birth. But, the most probably cause is damage to the tear duct from a previous eye infection. One of the cats in the house, Tui, had conjunctivitis as a kitten (most likely caused from feline viral rhinotracheitis (FVR). Since then, her left eye is 'leaky' most of the time. As long as the drainage is clear, there is no irritation, and there are no signs of an underlying upper respiratory infection, there is very little to be worried about.

She's never had an eye infection, I've had her ever since she was a young kitten, but they never told me about her past no matter how many times I asked so it could be that! Thank you so much =)
