Q. My Humalayian cat has an extremely watery left eye. When I clean it the color has a rusty red color to it. Is this normal for a Hymalayian?

A. Discharge from a Hymalayan cat is normal due to the shape of their skull.you just need to wipe around the eyes daily with a warm, damp cloth to avoid buildup and any problems that may result from the buildup.
