eyes

I was noticing earlier this evening that my kitten, who is almost 6 months old was squinting his left eye a little.  I wiped it with a warm cloth and it seemed to help.  Is there something else I should do before I decide to take him to the vet?

I recommend seeing your vet who can stain your cats eye to rule out an eye ulcer which is quite painful. Squinting is often a sign of an eye ulcer or other feline ocular injury.
