    I noticed a few days ago that my 7 yr old cat had protruding inner eyelids and they were red. I checked for any injuries but found nothing except his eyes were a little watery. I decided to leave it a couple of days before taking him to the vet as he absolutely hates it.

    Today I saw that James, my 11 yr old cat had the same protruding inner eyelids but these were not red. He has no other signs of illness.

    Does anyone know what this means? I have a third cat but she doesn't have the problem.

    I have tried to get some photos, don't know if i did this right.

    My cat has very red inner eye lids for a few days, and i noticed he was rubbing them a lot. i decided to take him to the vet and he has conjunctavitis (sp). eye drops for 2 weeks and cleared up well.

    i looked at your pictures and it doesnt really look like my cats eyes when he was infected. if you open up there eyes and look all around the white of the eye are there any red lines or blurryness in them?

    hope this helps...
