Q. Why is my cats eye tearing. Its only one eye.

A. The excess in tearing is called Epiphora and normally is cause by the tear ducts blocked. Try to dry as much as possible the wet skin not to cause a Dermatitis and as soon as your cat need any treatment or procedure under anesthetics your vet can flush the tear duct if that the problem, and all sorted.
