One of the risks of showing cats that all exhibitors acknowledge is the possibility of their cat "catching" something from one of the other cats at the show. Most cat registries have enacted a 21 Day Rule as part of their show rules, meaning any cattery that has had an infectious problem must not enter ANY cats in a show for 21 days following the date the cattery has a clear bill of health.
Tears are essential to the health of the eye. Dry eye in cats , also called keratoconjunctivitis sicca, is a condition in which the glands of the eyelids are unable to produce a sufficient volume of tears to lubricate and protect the eye, keeping it moist. Dry eye is a serious condition that can result in severe pain and blindness if it is not addressed quickly.
