Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. When two cats in the household are drooling and sneezing an infectious respiratory infection that causes irritation/ulcers in the mouth such as feline calicivirus or herpesvirus should be considered. Please check their oral cavity for me and let me know if you see tiny punctate ulcers on the tongue or gums. Both of these viruses usually go into remission within 1-3 weeks and so treatment isn't usually necessary. Occasionally a virulent strain of these viruses will cause inappetence and quite an ill cat and so if you didn't see a positive change in your cats within the initial week following the onset of symtoms, it would be prudent to have their vet take a look at them. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
