You may think your cat is unhappy if you've seen them with tears in their eyes. Nope. Crying isn't a form of communication. Unlike people, cats don't cry when sad. Why cry cats?
Yes, cats have eye ducts, but they don't cry emotional tears. Cats may "cry out" (meow, yowl, etc.) to communicate or show emotion.
A cat with tears streaming down her furry face is most likely experiencing discomfort in her eyes due to an underlying condition. These include:
Allergies. Dust, pollen, and mold allergies can affect pets too. They may also be allergic to food, tobacco smoke, perfume, and cleaning product chemicals. give them a healthy diet to reduce cat allergies.
Conjunctivitis. Bacterial and viral eye diseases can spread between cats. Kittens are susceptible to eye diseases due to their weakened immune systems. Take your cat to the vet if she has a red eye, swollen eyelid, clear, green
Cat flu can cause teary eyes in cats. It is usually caused by feline calicivirus or herpesvirus. Cat flu causes fatigue, sneezing, nasal discharge, fever, and loss of hunger. The flu has no cure, so the veterinarian may recommend eye drops, pain medication
Anatomical abnormalities Glaucoma in cats can cause partially closed eyes, squinting, rubbing, ocular swelling If you see any of these signs, take your cat to the vet.
