Overproduction of tears, allergies and viral infections can also cause watery eyes with some discharge.
What is normal?
A little quantity of discharge is quite usual. While some breeds are more prone to such discharges like Persians and Himalayans, those with short nose and large eyes. “Brachycephalic cat breeds” are vulnerable to this condition.
What is alarming?
When your cat’s eye discharge is colored/sticky, it is something to be concerned about. Maybe you can try wiping around her eyes with a hot water towel. Then, check if her irritation and discharge reduce. Otherwise, there is some medical issue that has to be addressed clinically. Therefore, take her to the vet to help your cat.
