I've put this in here, because although it's not a problem as such, I'm looking for some advice on what (god forbid) could be....

You've all met our lovely old adopted 'Mr Pussycat' on here, and the poor little man is not well. We think that he has a cold. He keeps sneezing, which at first was very "cute" but now is just plain worrying, and his eyes keep watering/seeping; he isn't eating much and he is spending more time than usual asleep...  

This has gone on now for maybe three days; and what I'd like to know is this... should we just get him to the vets; because he really isn't himself; or should we wait and see, as with "human" colds, if it disappears within a week??

I was up eight or nine times the night before last, just to check the poor little soul was breathing; so, needless to say I am very worried about him...

Any of you cat owners who can offer advice would be very much appreciated...

Take him to the vets as soon as... He could have cat flu, which needs to be treated asap...

I have to agree with Neil here. Cat flu can turn very nasty and they need treatment. Cats do not generally get colds like we do...


Onwards and upwards...

Awww, poor kitty, I agree with Neil and Sandra. If its financially doable, get the little guy checked out. He's probably miserable.

Cats can get colds just like humans, but I would get him checked out just in case.  Also, it will give the vet a chance to check him over as well just to make sure that everything else is in order.  Unlike us humans we can say when something isn't right, until something happens we don't know whether our beloved pets are suffering with something.


I am a fairy princess, what is your wish.....

Thanks Neil, Sandra, Debbie and Steph.

We took him to the vet this morning, and the poor old boy has:-

  • Conjunctivitis
  • A cold
  • Sinusitis
    and
  • An ear infection


(I didn't realise cats could gave conjunctivitis and sinusitis)


He's now on antibiotics; and we have got to put cream in his eyes twice a day   Still, at least this should sort him out.... he's gotta go back on Friday.

I've taken some photos of him today; if you look round his eyes and nose you can see where he is poorliest.....  

Anyway, again for the advice, I'll keep you posted later in the week....

I know, it breaks my heart. Even looking at the photo of him in the top pic, he kinda looks "happy" but on the latest ones he looks really unhappy, poor little lad...
