I have a girl kitten, and her name is Princess. She is now 6 months old, and i have had her since she was 6 weeks old. My roomate also has her brother. Both kittens were very healthy all throughout the time we had them. However about 5 days ago maybe i came home from work and Princess was really sick. What i think happened was she fell into a bowl of like water and then glade scented oil.. it was like an insence dish my roomate had. Anyways, she fell in and it coated her hind legs. So then i think she tried cleaning herself, and ingested the scented oil. When i got home she was vomiting, had a fever, very dialated pupils and she was making a type of gurgling noise. Right away i took her to the vet. He looked her over, and gave her something to settle her stomach and instructed me to feed her sugar water to further help settle her tummy and make sure she was staying hydrated. Now it had been 5 days since then. She is eating, and drinking. However, she still is not back to herself. She just lays in her bed, all day and all night. And when she has like almost coughing fits. She like crouches down on the floor and makes a very croopy cough sound and her whole body kind of convulses. I don't know what to do, or how else i can make her more comfortable. My mom thinks maybe she has a respiratory problem and after having her immuse system down from ingesting the mixture it just brought it forward. Any thoughtS??
