NO please don't use neosporin, as with anything you put on a cat he will lick it and neosporin can be toxic if ingested!!!

your kitty really really needs to see a Vet asap. this is most likely conjunctivitis and can lead to blindness if not treated. you don't want to mess with anything to do with the eyes!!!!

I would also suggest getting some L-lysine an amino acid. the Vet clinic will have some. it will help support the immune system also conjunctivitis is often associated with the herpes virus (cat herpes) and this will help alot..but he STILL REQUIRES an antibiotic.
if the Vet doesn't have you can order from this company, where I buy all my cat supplements..

use 500mg for the first week than 250mg for maintenance. its in powder form, just sprinkle on the food.
