Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

    Delilah was on Clavamox about a month ago for the same thing--no wheezing, but constant sneezing and a little bit of a watery left eye. After the antibiotics ran their course, she still sneezed occasionally. Is it possible that your kitty is picking up dust or maybe dryness in your house? This is the time of year for it, after all. If it' an allergy and not a URI, your kitty will continue to sneeze. In any case, remember we are just cat lovers here and not vets and we shouldn't diagnose or prescribe treatments. If you think your kitty is still somewhat ill, your best bet is to at least call your vet and share your concerns with them.

    Has the vet discussed the possibility of feline herpes with you and has she been tested for FELV? Both of those things were suggested to me when Kira was having nose troubles but fortunately she just had a polyp in her nose which was removed and now she's fine. But both of those things would cause a cat to be unable to fight off upper respiratory infections though. My vet had also prescribed L-Lysine as a supplement which is an amino acid that helps cats with herpes virus fight off the symptoms. Another possibility is a stronger antibiotic. My vet sent me to CVS to purchase Zithromax when the Amoxicillin didn't work. It's about $50 and the vet has to call in the Rx, but it is stronger and works faster.
