Lets hope it stays this way!
My Tage, came down with a URI when he was about.... 12 weeks old maybe? (I got him at 6 weeks, I believe he was some barn cat basically abandoned with me by it's former "owner".)
Anyway... He had the typical signs the discharge from the eyes sometimes nose, and sneezing. He would have days when he would play like normal and clear up, and days when he would do nothing but sit with momma and sneeze in her face all day. We treated him on many spereate occasions trying different and repeated medications for him. But as I said, some days he was completely NORMAL!
He broke out in a fever of about 103 or so (cats are normally around 101) the vet could even hear him struggling to breath on the phone and demanded he come in right then, lol.
He's better now, after he got over that lump of having his fever and being pretty out of it, including the shaking, he had another round of treatment, and now he's better, though, he does still have this slight reoccouring URI ever since (he's going on 2 years old now.) The vet warned me this would possibly happen as well, since he got so ill for song long as a young kit.
So now, some days he will have one gungy eye, and sneezes more often (and with more gungkies) then a normal cat. And no matter what I do I can't seem to make it go away.
So that's my storying, basically just saying I hope it doesn't happen to your kitty, but that you should still keep your eye out! And just like humans and their colds, cats can have repeated uri's through out their life. Next time though, if a cat comes down with one, at the first signs, please try and make an appointment at the vet, no one likes to get a fever even a kitty, and that endangers them even more.
Hissy: if you are reading this, please give me a place to order the Grape Fruit Seed Extract online, cause I've searched about 4 or 5 health stores now, including one rumored to be at walmart, and still nothing...
