If your cat has always had a droopy left eye, then this is probably nothing to worry about.

However, if this a new development, then you will have to take your cat to see a vet as soon as possible.

A droopy eye may not sound that worrying, but it could be the sign of a more serious infection or an allergy that will need to be treated by a vet.

A droopy eye could be the sign of several problems with your cat...
  • Horner's syndrome is one of the more serious problems. This condition affects the facial muscles - which causes an eye to droop. Horner's syndrome may also affect the size of your cat's pupils, so check these too.
  • A droopy eye in your cat could be the sign of an allergy or an infection. Both these ailments are relatively common, and can be treated by your local vet.
  • If you notice that your cat's eye has suddenly become droopy, then it would be wise for you to take your cat to the veterinary practice.

It may mean it has allergies and he may need to be taken to the vet for medication. It is nothing to worry about but, if it lasts for more then 1 month, take it to the vet.
