noticed alfie eye not opening properly,i had a look it looked like a splinter,but he has just got back from the vets,they had to put him to sleep to take out a thorn which the vet explained was well and truely stuck into the white part of his eye.god how awful it was lucky i saw his eye not opening properly and i could see it myself.but his eye is good now so no damamge done.lucky no infection.
