Red eye
Good morning
Yesterday a cat found us at our offices. I have seen it before but thought it might be a stray cat. But it turned out that the cat was quite loving.

The problem we have is that it''s left eye is perfectly fine but the right eye is a puplish, red colour, the whole eye. It looks like she/he is blind. You cannot see a pupil in the eye. It discharges a bit but not much and it does not seem to bother the cat.

Is there something we can do for this cat?

You will have to take the cat to a veterinarian for an examination. Alternatively take the cat to a welfare organisation like SPCA or Animals in distress.
