Is my cat going to be ok?... - April 12th 2014, 04:31 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I got my cat back in January, ever since I brought him home he's been sneezing and I used my free vet exam and even took him back to the humane society to get checked up and the vet told me to give him L Lysine and at the humane society they didnt give me an answer about it.

So, last week I took him to another vet and she said that she doesn't think his sneezing is an infection of any sort but that maybe when he was a kitten he did have one and it perminately damaged his sinuses because he would've gotten better by now if it wasn't perminate. But when he sneezes some times she shoots out human like buggers and some times there is blood in the mucus. When I googled about the blood it said that most of the time its not serious that the blood could be of something blocking his nasal passages or apart of allergies, and I don't have the money to get him further looked at

Also, off and on he will make this weird hacking noise and sometimes stretch out his neck like he cant breathe, I am thinking its maybe a hairball? But I am scared to think that it could be this sinus thing as well I've never had a cat before and all these things and how they act is new to me. I also think I am over worrying because my Grandma's cat we just had to put down because she was not eating and became very dehydrated and lost a lot of weight. But my cat other than the sneezing and that hacking thing seems fine, he's eating, playing, torturing my Grandmas other cat (she had two) and is using the litter box normally.

Can someone who is knowledgeable of cats let me know what they think? Could I be over worrying or should I be worried?

I'm thinking he could have a possible foreign body like a grass seed, stone stuck in there which could cause the sneezing if it's irritating him or it could be cat flu, if he seems fine then it's nothing serious, if your cat starts to withdraw, isolate himself from you it means something is wrong as cats don't like to show they're sick, also check his mucous membranes (gums, eyes, anus) if they're pink then everything is dandy if they're white, blue or yellow then he's either in shock, jaundice or the blood is focusing somewhere on his body which needs it more.

I'd request an x-ray and the hacking thing does sound like a hairball, allow your cat some grass, if he's an indoor cat then you can buy cat grass as this helps them be sick.

Another possibility is he could be allergic to something, it could be food, fabric, other animals etc. Just give him plenty of water (NOT MILK unless it's goat as this is harmful).

Hope I helped.
