    Well, cat's get eye infections very frequently. Usually its not v serious and would go away on its own. The eye infection might not be related to the head swelling but if they are close, maybe could be related. Then maybe its an infection or abscess.

    Yes, if the pus has bacteria, you can inherit the bacteria when you rub it onto your eyes. But as a human is many times larger than a cat, the amount or type of bacteria that infects a cat may not pose a problem to you cos your immune system can deal with the small amount of bacteria. But if your immune system is very weak or if that bacteria is very potent or novel, you may suffer from infection too. But if you have rubbed it onto your eyes and there is no swelling, you have no reason to worry.

    depends on how you approach them and if you have the kind of 'touch'. I have no problem approaching most strays and tickling them until they belly up.

    Yeah thanks. I've just passed the cat again. Squatted really near it and realised that on the bump there was pus. I guess it's abscess. Surprisingly it was calm maybe because I walked really slowly to it. Didn't give it anything to eat. It was calm and it even meowed. If I see the old man again I will tell him and ask him to take it to a vet. Thanks
