First of all, I am sorry for the late reply.

Given your cat's age and symptoms, it is likely to be a symptom of a viral infection.(herpes virus, chlamydia, calicyvirus).

In order to identify the above causes + bacterial infection or corneal infection, you need to visit a nearby animal hospital for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Your cat needs to wear a neck collar to prevent scratching. Wipe your cat's eyes with sterile physiological saline or artificial tears containing hyaluronic acid.

If the symptoms do not improve, you should seek treatment from a veterinary clinic in your area.

If your cat is infected with a virus such as herpes or chlamydia, or pavovirus a yellow and green runny nose and diarrhea may be a natural symptom.

If you are going to visit an animal hospital, an eye fluorescence staining test, an x-ray test, and a blood test are essential to make an accurate diagnosis.

To prevent secondary infections, antibiotics may be needed and eye drops may be prescribed.

It is recommended that you also feed your cat nutritional supplements that can increase its immunity. It can also be helpful to provide probiotic products or nutritional supplements such as L-lysin and flumax on a daily basis. And for stop diarrhea, you may need to feed her probiotics, Fibor products
