    Hi guys,
    recently Ruxpin had a watery eye - put down to a scratch and given an oily drop to put in it.
    That's all cleared up and he has lovely eyes again but he does seem to get a fair bit of "sleep" in the corners of his eyes. Not lots i mean and he does clean his face himself (when he remembers)!
    I assume this is normal for BSH? He's silver so it does show up. Is there anything other than damp cotton pads to use to clean them occasionally?

    Thanks! :D

    I think it's quite common - Gracie gets a bit of sleep there too. I know that Persians often have runny eyes and BSH eyes are similar so it's probably connected (as they're related to Persians). Gracie's eyes don't run but she does get a little bit of sleep.

    Well Ruxpin's runny eye was a scratch that's now cleared up so I guess I'll just use the cotton pad when he "forgets" aka can't be bothered to clean his face himself! :rolleyes:
