A. These are not good signs. Cloudy eyes can signify signs of infection and corneal edema (fluid build-up in the eyes due to numerous underlying disease such as parasitic infections, fungal infections, etc). I recommend you take your cat in to a veterinarian as soon as possible for a complete eye exam to help confirm corneal edema and possible uveitis (inflammation of the eye) and they can prescribe some medications to help treat this and then either follow up with you or get your cat an ophthalmologist appointment if needed.
