    Sure is a floof-bucket! (I wonder why puss’s eyes are so crusty????)

    Might wanna put some kind of dish underneath that pot before watering…

        Though on second thought it looks like this particular potting floof might be self-watering…

    Spring allergies making the eyes crusty?

    Sorry but as a former breeder and exhibitor of Persians for over 25 years, I have to comment. I feel sorry for that poor (very pretty) Persian that its owner didn’t think enough of it to clean its face before taking and loading that picture on the internet for the world to see. It’s not unusual for Persians to have eye ‘gunk’ as their tear ducts are many times not as open as in cats with longer noses. But for heavens sake, a Persian parent has to take the initiative and keep their faces/eyes clean. It’s NOT hard to do!! I wanted to reach into my monitor and start working on that beautiful face. Sad!!

      I do understand and sympathize, Flowerfanatic; but then again, kitty may have decided to pose in basket before mom or dad had a chance to clean his or her eyes. I used to clean my DSH cats’ eyes regularly, but if I’d caught them in a camera-ready pose, I might have taken the shot before worrying about the goop. Sometimes you just have to live in the moment.

      FWIW, at this point my dog Ricky will hardly ever let me clean his eye gunk out. He used to be very patient about it, but he’s 15 now, and as there are so many things making him uncomfortable, I’ve learned to bide my time and pick my battles. So he often looks very grubby and scruffy compared to the way he used to look, but there’s a story behind it. And I do make sure his absolute essentials are dealt with to the best of my ability, always.

        The eyes on this kitty bothered me, too. But as Ricky’s Mom said, sometimes you have to pick your battles. In the last 2 years of his life my elderly lop, Benji, had terrible goopy eyes. Some days he just couldn’t handle a prolonged fur cleaning in that sensitive area.
        I still don’t get how cats can fit into ANYthing–or why they want to!😄
