A while ago, I posted an article on how black salve has saved me literally hundreds of dollars in Vet bills.  If you missed that post, you can read it here. Today I would like to share with you another remedy you may find helpful during one of your fur baby’s lives…and all for the cost of a black tea bag and water.

Have you ever had a kitten or a cat with an eye full of gunk?  I have had a couple over the past few years.  And, I have successfully cured the cat’s eye issue without a vet visit.  How do I do this, you ask…well…I simply steep a cup of black tea.

You can do this too, in a matter of a few simple steps:

  • Steep a cup of black tea  
  • Let the tea cool to where it is warm (you don’t want to burn the cat’s eye) 
  • Using a washcloth or paper towel, dip an end into the warm tea…not wringing the tea completely out of the medium (towel/washcloth).  
  • Gently wash the cat’s eye to remove as much gunk as you can.  
  • Using a clean spot of your medium (towel/washcloth), dip it into the tea and squeeze 5-6 drops of tea on the eye.  
  • Repeat these steps for 3-4 days, 3-5 times a day (I usually steep one cup of tea and warm it as I need to during the day).  

Within a short few days you should notice the eye opening fully again and no gunk coming out of it.  If this isn’t the case, then it’s time to make a vet appointment.

Have a great day!
