Third eyelid showing?
Not sure what is wrong with my 5 year old part Maine Coon. He ventures outside more during the summer and 2 days ago he came inside and was drooling excessively. He didn't vomit but drooled a lot for like half an hour. Then he was fine and hasn't drooled at all since then.
He's been lazing around a lot more. When he's feeling ok he will meow and bug you until you let him out. The last 2 days he wants out but will let it go quickly if you don't let him go.
He's eating, not as fast as he normally does but he's had an ok intake and output of fluids.
The biggest thing though is that his third eye lids are showing. They are constantly there and that's not normal for him. I've felt his ears and they aren't warm or hot so I don't think he has a temp.
Anyone know what may be wrong?
DH and I are thinking he got into some fertilizer or something poisonous. Suggestions?

Well you definately need to take your Kitty to a Vet asap....if he did get into some fertilizer or poison this is FATAL....
Usually the third eyelid occurance is an indication of PAIN...or something seriously wrong.
If you love your kitty and I'm sure you do Please take him to a Vet immediately....good luck

He could have gotton into something or he could have been stung by a bee, anything really.  The eyelid shows usually when there is swelling in the eye, nose, face, teeth, ear, or infection is present.  I would get him checked out with a vet because if it's a tooth or loose tooth it can be pulled and he'll be feeling good.  My cat had the eyelid showing and drooling, not wanting to eat, but seemingly in good shape until I finally looked in her mouth and saw a broken tooth hanging!  I'd get him checked out.

Thanks all! The end of the day that I posted this he seemed to be feeling better. Now he's completely back to normal.
The bee sting was something that I thought could have been possible.
I'm keeping my eye on him still and hopefully if he did get into something, that he knows better to not do it again.
