ok so we just brought cinnamon home tonight and she has one eye that is really goopy looking. I had noticed it a little when we first met her but it was not much, I have seen cats occasionally have eyes get like that in the corner but its pretty bad now that im looking at her. she is 5 months old and was found as a stray who was sick with a cold. they said she is better now but im still worried. either way I plan on making a trip to the vet this week but was wondering what everyone else thought?

    Goopy eye is fairly common in shelters, some antibiotics should clear it up, so a vet trip is in order. In the meantime you can gently clean the eye with a warm wet washrag.
