Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about this situation with your little one. How long have you had her? Where did she come from? How long ago did she last eat and drink?
Thank you for answering those questions. Has she ever been to your vet's? Has she been looking normal till here today? So she last ate around 5 hours or so ago? Is she having a lot of discharge from her nares?
Can you help me, "She's eating tread right now"?
I was trying my best to decipher the "tread" and was coming up blank. Treats now makes sense. So she is eating some treats and wet food right now as in the last 10 minutes?
That is good that she's eating right now. With young kittens like this, they can have simple upper respiratory infections that can look very much like this. For the most part, these are viral in nature and require time, nutrition and rest to let their bodies fight it off. If they get really dumpy, then a secondary bacterial infection may be at hand that can benefit from antibiotic therapy. Here is a good link on this.
With her, as long as she's eating decent, resting, and not being overly stressed - it would seem that she has a good chance of taking care of this all on her own. So giving her plenty of fresh food, water and a chance to rest are the best things you can give her at home.
Did this bring up any other questions?
