Bless you for rescuing this sweet baby. You are AWESOME!

She could be coughing from severe worm infestation or she could have cat flu.

Now that she has been wormed she should improve but repeat the dose in 3 weeks to kill hatching eggs.

To cure runny poo add a tsp of rice cereal or boiled white rice to 2 ounces of canned cat food or baby food chicken with no onion or garlic Also give her a half tsp of plain yogurt every day for ten days.

If she is congested run a hot shower to make a steam room in your bath room and take her in for ten minute intervals.

Please let me know how she is doing. I hope she feels better very soon.
