You can clean the nose area with childrens saline nasal spray or sterile saline on a q-tip.
You can also bring the cat into a steamy bathroom to help break up congestion and get the nose area open.
Cats are so sensitive to medications there really are not any safe over the counter meds you can use with them for this.
So cleaning the nose and trying the steam and perhaps a vaporizer with plain water in it will work to break up congestion.
Hope this helps you!
