Thanks. If I know he'll besneezing that long, I won't worry as much if he's still sneezing tomorrow. Sometimes I really think I worry too much about him.
I think I will talk to the vet about testing him for Herpes. He's fairly prone to 'colds' - just bouts of sneezing, gunky eyes and a runny nose, but it usually goes away in anything from a few days to about 2 weeks. Herpes wouldn't suprise me considering Cotton's health was compromised pretty badly before we got him and I really don't think his immune system is as good as Freya's.
I've started him on 500 mg of Lysine a day. I just mix it in his 1/2 tsp of yogurt in the morning (it's our ritual treat
) and he doesn't even notice it. I did get human grade caplets at the local pharmacy. I think it was about $8. I guess the best thing at this point is to let him curl up in his box/cave as much as he wants and just make sure he's still eating/drinking. He's eating a bit less than usual, but so is Freya, so that might just be them reacting to the seasonal shift, but he is still eating and drinking normally.
I'll admit I pulled my 'mom' thing on him today and cleaned him up because he was looking pretty scraggly. Just brushed him and wiped his face, cleaned his ears and eyes. Funny thing is, he was a bit more active afterwards - wandered around the house sitting inall the windows, using his scratcher and then curling up on the bed with me while I had a nap. Hopefully ti won't take him too long to kick it.
Thanks again for all the advice.
