Sick Miss Kitty

We’ve had a rough 5 days or so. Miss Kitty has been sick. She’s nearly 14 years old and I didn’t know if I would have to take her to the vet or not. She had been eating and drinking, and toileting herself so I figured she could fight this cold off with little help of OTC supplements. She (and the others) get Lysine daily, so her dose went to twice daily. I also added DMG Immune Formula and Nose Relief drops.

It was a rough weekend for poor Miss Kitty. She couldn’t breathe out of her nose so she had her mouth open most of the time. Her eyes were a drippy mess and she did a lot of sneezing. Slowly, the sneezing subsided and her eyes stopped leaking. The last thing to clear up was her nose. She’s still a little congested but overall, she’s much improved from the weekend. Thank Goodness!!


She’s almost back to her old grouchy self; wagging her tail for no reason, rolling over for tummy rubs only to get aggravated after a few rubs, and pacing the floor as if she’s on the prowl for demons or something! She’s taking a nap now, tail still wagging…silly cat.

  1. Isn’t it funny how every cat has such a different personality? I love that she wags her tale while she naps…and that she is feeling better. You gave a great tip there on the Lysine. I had wondered about giving some to Walter because he gets skin bumps on his chin sometimes. I bet it would help!

    1. I don’t know if it helps skin issues specifically but it does help their immune system! It sounds like the skin bumps on his chin might be flea bites? Kitty gets them and since she’s allergic to flea bites, she turns into a bumpy mess without flea meds. I’ve had to go from topical flea drops (like Frontline) because they all quit working after a while. I’m using a Seresto flea collar now and it works but she’s getting bald spots and sores around her neck. I had to remove the collar for about a week and a half so she could heal from that. Now that she’s over her bout with her cold, maybe we’ll get back on track. I hope you can find something to get rid of Walter’s bumps! ❤

      1. No, it’s not fleas. Luckily, we haven’t had fleas here in years. It’s some sort of autoimmune/allergy or some other combination that causes it. Poor baby has had some really bad outbreaks. But now I keep him on antibiotics on and off. I hate to do it, but it’s the only thing that’s helped. We’ve tried all sorts of different foods and other medications that should be helpful, but nothing does except for the antibiotics.
