A little cold

When Josh was a kitten he had a cold all the time. The vet originally thought it might be fluid from his brain kinda seeping through (thought of it makes me feel a little ill) but they ran some tests and he has calichi virus which is a strain of cat flu. When he was a baby he had it really bad and used to sleep like this

because his nose would get so blocked up. The older he's got the less bad his cold has got. But recently he got a really bad cold just like when he was a kitten, sneezing all the time again and having a running nose and mucky eyes. Poor fella! he is doing a bit better now, he's been on his medication and his cold cleared up but now it's coming back a bit again so i'll sort out his meds again

Poor fella - having a cold is no fun, but the pictures of him sleeping when he was a baby were cute. We hope he feels better soon.

Joshie the little poppet. I'm sorry he's having problems with calici again. My 'bro Gerry has this so has to be watched very carefully everytime he snuffles as the calici damaged the mucosal lining of his nose, sinuses and throat very badly. He's been on Interferon for about a year now and so far it's kept the calici at bay - this might help Joshie if he's prone to the snuffles.

Feel better soon Joshie!
