Sophie's got the sniffles

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My poor baby's come down with a wee cold; she keeps sneezing and has a bit of runny nose. Do you think this warrants a visit to the vet or is this something to worry about or does she just need rest and TLC?

Any advice for the "new mom" here would be greatly appreciated!

Watch her for the next 2 or 3 days. Make sure she's eating, drinking, using the box and playing normally. If she does not seem any better in a few days, I would take her in. It could be allergies to something as well.

Thanks Sandie

She's going to the vet tonight to get her kitty manicure (she won't let me near her with a set of clippers!), so I'll be sure to ask them. hehehe:LOL: they're used to me now and all my nervous concerns; it's such a great clinic. Cats only with evening appointments; they have several resident cats, play music for them, have lots of furniture and toys etc... Sophie isn't my first kitty, I had Mitzi when I was a kid; Mitzi was an indoor/outdoor cat, tough but sweet, got into a caffufle with a racoon once and the vet had a real time of it cleaning her up. Sophie is completey different. I adopted her from a shelter, she was a stray kitten who'd been hit by car and ended up at the SPCA; they set her broken leg and nursed her through a respiratory infection before I'd got her. Funny though, they said she might have a permanent limp, and other than when she runs, you don't even notice it! Such a sweetie, I held her my arms and adopted her on the spot; I didn't even bother looking at any of the other cats!

thanks for the advice; I'm so glad I found this site!

Oh I am glad to see some people finding the cat clinics to be pleasant. I am sure they understand all your concerns. I hope all is okay with her. Make sure and let us know what you find out.

Drats I hate it when I type a long complicated post and the page doesn't load! arrghhh. Anyway, thanks for asking Tigger. Vet says Sophie doesn't have a cold, but maybe allergies. I figure it's from playin in all those dust bunnies I never move the furniture to vacuum :LOL: Martha Stewart, I'm not! She's still not to happy with me about the nail trim and soft paw tips

I just finished typing up one of my last english essays for the term so I'm a little Now I just have exams to worry about

Thanks again for asking about Sophie; you people are all so nice!:daisy:

I'm glad to hear Sophie is ok! I remember when we first got Scooter, he had the sneezies for a while ... I think it was because he was getting used to his new home. But, at the same time, I was treating all 3 of the Bengals for an upper respiratory infection. He had a slight case of it.
Gizmo cannot stand when I try to trim his toes. WHen he was about 9 weeks or so, I accidentally trimmed to far So, now he cries & pulls his toes away from me. Eventually, I do get them trimmed.

I am so glad to hear it was just an allergy. You know, this time of year is bad for me and one of my cats
