It sounds like she has an upper respiratory tract infection which is a viral cat cold.

Is she squinting the eye or unable to open the eye? Did her symptoms just start today?

Her left eye is smaller and squinting. I just adopted her from a rescue organization yesterday and noticed it for two days now.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
She has an appointment with a Vet next Tuesday. Is there anything I can do in the mean time or should I take her to a walk in sooner?
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Gabby, Cat Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Ok so upper respiratory tract infections are very common. If her eye is involved, and she is squinting and there is drainage, I think she should be seen today or tomorrow. Most regular vets are open today and Saturday mornings. He eye should be checked to make sure the virus is not affecting her cornea. The cornea is a thin layer of cells that covers the front of the eye. It is sensitive so when the cornea is affected they may squint the eye. Treatment would be antibiotic eye medication to make sure the cornea does not become infected. So you would have to see a vet to get the antibiotic eye medication because they do not sell it over the counter.

For her sneezing you can give her human bendaryl. Based on her age Im guessing she weighs about 2.5 pounds. That would be 1 ml or 1 cc of benadryl every 12 hours as needed for the sneezing.

Keep a humidifier in the room with her.

When you take a shower bring her into the bathroom and steam out her respiratory tract.

She's tiny born with a spinal curve and back paw has one toe from umbilical cord being tangled. She's probably 1.5 lbs.

If cats have a stuffy nose and can not smell the food they do not eat as well. So you can use really smelly fish flavors and warm the food to make it more fragrant.

You are welcome.

I am glad you are able to take her in sooner. : )

Ok then 1/2 cc of benadryl every 12 hours. Your vet may have a different antihistamine they prefer to recommend.
