You can tell by the pictures he doesn't feel too good. I didn't realize cats could get all those illnesses like we do. He looks how I felt all week.
Not to take away from your poor sick kitty, but I have a problem similar. I have been very ill all week with bad bronchitis, non-stop coughing. But no matter how much I cough, nothing is brought up. It's all stuck in my throat and chest, which makes it hard to breathe. I literally have to gasp for air at times. Which is making me wonder...could it be pneumonia?   I am very scared to find out, and don't have money now to see a doctor, but I don't want to drop dead either. I was just wondering if anyone here ever had pneumonia, or know someone who did, and could tell me some symptoms. Thanks.

Debbie - I've never had pneumonia, but with those symptoms, you'd better get to the vet doctors quickly!!!

......Seriously though, I would do, it doesn't sound good... so please go, and keep us updated how you are







Lorraine, , he seems a little better today, but he's only had 4 anti-biotics so far; and 3 doses of eye cream; so it's early days....

One of my nieces had pneumonia last year, she was only 15... and was hospitalised. You cant take your time with it debbie.... you should get it checked to be sure. Great if it isnt.... but if it is... you`ll have done the right thing. Hope all goes well.  

Hope mr pussycat is more comfortable Maxine.... I know its early days, and its scary and heart breaking for you.

But Pneumonia is very serious, don't leave it, it will leave you prone to bronchial problems and infection.

Having said that, Pneumonia makes you very ill, and you would definitely know about it. But get it looked at, just in case. Don't play a bad hand with your health as the stakes. >

Thanks Maxine, Elfi, Neil and Corky for your concern. Much appreciated.
Istill feel bad, its been a week now. I am not feverish or achy, my main thing is my chest. It feels like theres an elephant sitting on it. Its hard to breathe, especially if I climb stairs or walk out in the cold. Very hard for me to catch my breath.
And as Elfi said, I don't want to wind up in the hospital. But as Neil said, US sucks with health care. I don't want to waste time or money if its just bronchitis. My next day off is Wednesday, if I'm still like this, I will go get it checked. Thanks guys for your advice.

Well, if you have an HMO or something, chances are you wouldn't be able to get in for an appointment for at least a week.  Maybe you could schedule an appointment now, and if you feel better before the appointment, cancel it.  If not, you would probably be better off going.

Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks Lorraine! Thats my problem, no insurance whatsoever, so whatever I do, its coming out of my pocket.   Since the divorce, I haven't had any, insurance or health care, for that matter.
