I have a 7 month old kitten who is sick. We got her last friday (5/7) and the next day we got her spayed and rabies shot done. Sunday night she got out (she was previously indoor/outdoor, but has been indoor with her past owner for a month, and will be indoor only here) and would up in the local shelter. We found out Monday morning, and my husband got her that afternoon.
On weds she started to sneeze some, and we just left it up to us needing to dust a bit more. Thursday she was sneezing still, but that night she got a bit worse. Tbh, I thought she had inhaled some super spicy food I was eating, and that was bothering her, but on friday she was coughing.
Saturday I took her to the vet and she was diagnosed with an URI and yeast infection in her ears, and given fluid and medicine (doxycycline) for her cold. The vet wanted to wait until she was a bit better before introducing a second medication. That night she ate some, and played a bit, but was no longer wheezing or breathing through her mouth.
Today, she's not as spunky. She ate a little wet food this morning, and has been sleeping most of the day. She does get up and wander some when I am around, but she is mostly sleeping. I have some food near her so when she wakes up, she can eat. She is confined away from the other two cats I have so they won't get sick.
This is going to sound dumb, but I'm not sure what else to do, if there is anything I need to do. My other two cats are never sick, so I don't know how to handle a sick cat, especially one this young and tiny (she's very petite, right under 5 lbs.) Is there anything else I need to do? Or let her be comfortable so she can get better? I sit with her and spend time with her, but I just feel like I need to do more for her.
