My cat sleeps with.. -

Max is about 13 weeks old and he was just sleeping next to me and I just happened to peek over at him and his eyes were half open and you could see the "third eye" (I think that's what it's called - the white covering.. ?) Anyways, I was just wondering if it's normal for them to sleep with their eyes open like that or if it's weird...

Yeah it's totally normal! It's called a 'nictitating membrane', it helps animals moisten and protect their eyes. Though mammals really don't use it anymore, that's the way sea creatures can see underwater while protecting their eyes.
