What causes tear stains?
The tear stains are due to the porphyrins in the tears. These compounds are formed as waste from the red blood cells which is excreted through the tears, urine, and saliva of the cats. When the cat has excess tears that have porphyrins in them it creates a streak on its path. What causes the stain is the iron content in the porphyrins which in exposure to the air and sunlight turns reddish rust colored and is more prominent.
Eye infections also cause the tear stains and that stains will be more brownish than reddish. The yeast caused tears stains are different from that due to an abnormality in the tear ducts.
