Q. I gave my cat a bath today he hit his eye on the faucet trying to jump first his eye was completely shut now its halfway open, should I go to a vet

A. If there is any bleeding from the eye or it continues to look sore a few hours after the incident then yes it is a good idea to have your vet check him over. Cats generally hate baths and shouldn't really ever need them.
