Hi Courtney,

I know something: this is his third eyelid. When a cat is sick, maybe a cold or somethig else, this eyelid appears. The best is to take him to the vet imm.
Good luck,

The scientific term is "nictitating membrane". Cats will show this mainly when sick. They will also display when very sleepy and relaxed. If your cat is showing his/hers all the time then a vet visit is needed.

Fyi, cats have a top and bottom one and also one that moves across the eye from side to side. The third lid is to protect and lubricate their eyes. Have it checked by a vet for diagnosis.
