Evian for Eyes

Baby Boy, our new kitten, has a little eye problem. The vet said kittens are prone to having this problem when they get stressed. It must be pretty stressful being a kitten...playing, peeing, pooping & sleeping...where do you fit the stress into your busy schedule?

Before we go to some type of eye antibiotic the vet suggested we go to the pharmacy and get eye wash. So, being the good Mama that I am, I headed over to W*M's pharmacy and purchased 4 fl ozs of Bausch & Lomb's Soothing Eye Wash for just around $4. Nothing's too good for our baby! Except for one little 4 oz thing.....do you know what Soothing Eye Wash is??? Huh??? Do you???? Well....let me clue you in....it's PURIFIED WATER!!! That's right!!! PURIFIED WATER!!! No added soothers...medicinal stuff...nothing...just PURIFIED WATER!!! Thaz it! I could have bought almost 4 flippin GALLONS of the stuff for the same amount I spent on 4 whole ounces! Sure the PURIFIED WATER is in a little squirt bottle with a narrow tip....but, I could have bought the bottle for less than $1 and then a whole gallon of PURIFIED WATER for what? $.58? Since the cent sign no longer exists...that's 58 CENTS!!!

In summary....almost $1 an ounce for the B & L Soothing Eye Wash....soothing my ass! It's WATER!!! Or....I could have spent less than $2 for a whole gallon of "soothing eye wash" aka: PURIFIED WATER...and have a reusable bottle! I can't get the lid off the B & L narrow-tipped bottle. Yes, our beautiful Baby Boy has an idiot for a Mama.

Aaah, poor kitten. And if it weren't for your insight, none of us would have known to avoid spending 3 extra bucks and just get purified water instead.

Let us know if it worked on his eye, though.

I can't solve the highway robbery you just were victim to, but I can solve a bit of HTML for you:

& cent ; in the HTML code (without spaces) will translate out to a cents sign.

I wouldn't have seen that coming either.

Oh and head's up there's a tetra pack juice on the market that contains along with its apple and grape juice, skim milk powder. Funniest tasting juice I ever had.

Every momma has a learning curve. Kitten will love you through it all. They're good that way.

Yes it's robbery ... but sssh!! The kitten will really appreciate it and we won't tell him about the whole saving cash thing!

it is not stress, it is prolly a food alergy. NYPINTA just went through this with "Stanley" her cat. It would go insofar as a cone collar and red bleeding eyes (POOR KITTY)

Monitor what he eats. Get you some eye drops for people with alergies (store brand is as good as B and L)

And watch lil mr farter for his reaction when he eats different foods! Lots of luck hun.
