My boyfriend and I are taking care of a stray cat we found wandering around the neighborhood. Yes, we are suckers for animals. Normally we wouldn't take another cat (we already have one and a half cats, one inside only and one only comes in to eat.) However, he was skin and bones and is just so sweet, loves to be held, and is always ready to cuddle. How could we resist?
However, the little guy wouldn't stop sneezing so I brought him in to our local vet. He was diagnosed with a respiratory infection and sent home without meds stating that it was a virus and would heal itself. When he wasn't better three weeks later, the vet gave me some meds and some chewy treats for his immune system. However, it has been another 5 days and he's not that much better. Is anyone out there familiar with this illness or had something similar with a cat? Could it be something else? Do cats get allergies? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
