Our neighbor's cat visited. It stayed for about three weeks(still here), and it has black stuff coming out of it's nose, and on the sides of it's eyes. It started with only it's eyes, so we thought it was only eye bugers, sense it's a purely white cat and we've seen that alot in white cats, and sense the neighbors didn't do anything about it. I'm not taking it to the vet yet,because it still doesn't seem like something big now that it's been for three weeks and the cat is acting normal. I may take it though if I discover it needs it. I'm thinking it may have something to do with the lack of sunlight maybe. The picture will be shown below in case I'm not clear enough.
Now the problem here is; 1- We cleaned around it's eyes with cutips, but it keeps coming back. 2- After around 3 weeks MY cat started getting it at the sides of it's nose. Which is really getting me concerned.
But if it was some kind of sickness and contagious why did my cat only catch it after 3 weeks? Can it somehow be contagious to people? What can it cause to the two cats? If I clean their noses (and eyes) with anti bacterial soap (really carefuly)will it still come back? I'd most defeniately appreciate the help,provided details of coarse.
The vet has been costing us alot for some time and it's getting on our nerves. If there are any home remedies to solve the problem I'd be working on the cats 24/7, I don't mind. I just hope to get the this done without having to pay much although if it's necessary I may have to. I have no Idea what this is and I'm starting to get worried.
For more information, the first cat to have it had it only on it's eyes, (and I'm starting to think it was only on one at first but not really sure) but then got it on the sides of it's nose as well. My sister told me it had a somewhat a fever (she isn't a veterinarian or the sort) every now and then, but she doesn't feel it any more. The two have diarrhea but not major. They are happy and acting normal, playing together like nothings there. And finally the MOST important fact, I suspect my cat is pregnant, she started having this for two days now. Can this affect her?
