So I came home from vacation Monday night around 11:30pm and noticed my cat Soxy was sneezing. I didn't think much of it. But now it's Wednesday and he's still sneezing and it's a little worse. My uncle was coming over every day while we were gone to feed him and change the litter but said he never noticed anything different. Granted he wasn’t here very long each time just to feed and scoop litter.
He's not acting different. He's his normal cuddly, weird, purry, talkative self. He's not lethargic. No fever. No runny eyes or runny nose. He's eating and drinking fine and still grooming himself(when he gets sick he doesn't groom himself and his fur gets oily.) He's not struggling to breathe and not coughing. And there doesn’t seem to be anything “stuck” up there.
Nothing in the house has changed I use the same cleaning products I always have, the same detergent, same candles, same kitty litter etc. He's strictly an indoor cat. He's UTD on everything.
When he sneezes sometimes it's just one but other times it's many in one sitting. And they're BIG sneezes. I feel so bad cause sometimes it's like he's trying to stop himself but can't. Also when he sneezes I'm guessing it's snot (but it has the consistency of water and is clear) comes out (probably just normal nasal secretions). And he sneezes about every half hour or so no matter what he’s doing. He could be sleeping, eating, drinking, walking around, cuddling with me, etc.
I called my vet to schedule an appt and they said they wouldn't be able to get us in until next Tuesday. I told them that if they get an opening to please let me know so I can bring him in. I don’t know how long this has been going on and I don’t want it to get worse if it’s going to.
Is there anything I can do to help him out while waiting until next Tuesday? I feel so bad for my poor kitty. He doesn’t like sneezing at all.
Here’s some pics of the goof while I was typing this
