I am sorry to hear you are worried about Pretty Kitty. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

How long has she been coughing and sneezing? Does she go outside at all?

What have you tried so far?

Coughing and sneezing can be signs of a respiratory infection (viral or bacterial), allergies, asthsma, or having aspirated something into the nose like a piece of grass, or a polyp in the nose. Is there any blood being sneezed out?

Is she still eating and drinking normally? If not, she may need medical attention and prescription medication like antibiotics.

Children's nose drops such as Little Noses can help with sneezing. If this is a viral infection, the amino acid supplement L Lysine may be helpful.

Let me know how long this has been going on, and what else I can answer or help with.
