Default I adopted my cat Nicky a year and a half ago (he is now two years old). He has always

It is hard to know exactly what is going on without seeing Nicky. If he is squinting and closing his eye more than normal, I would probably take him back to the veterinarian to be examined. Some cats can be carriers of the feline herpes virus and this virus can cause a little bit of squinting or eye irritation without any other signs. The symptoms tend to come and go and may need to be treated on occasion when a flare-up is severe. Feline herpes virus is usually diagnosed based on clinical signs and a good eye exam can also give some clues. In most cats, this is not a serious disease and if Nicky is a carrier he should be fine. Let me know if you have any more questions after your visit to the veterinarian.
