Question:
What does it mean when a cat is always crying and picking her but up and the whites of her eyes are brown?



Replies:
If the whites of her eyes are truly brown, she is truly sick. If they are yellow that indicates jaundice or liver disease or something destroying the red blood cells in her body.

Get her to a vet now instead of hoping for a long distance diagnosis and treatment.

Phillip Raclyn, DVM CVA
