I had to take Mr. Pumpkin to the vet today because he didn't seem to want to open his left eye. Not only that, but it was kind of oozing and he didn't want me to touch it. As cute as he was winking at me (I was tempted to put a pirate patch on him), I was worried about him.
So the vet gave me some ointment to put in his eye twice a day. He said that this could be a respiratory infection that he had as a kitten. Sometimes they can come back later to bother the grown-up kitty.
But the good news is that Mr. Pumpkin has lost 3/4 of a pound since we started his diet this year. He is down to 18 pounds, 11 ounces. Yay, Punkin!
