View Full Version : HELP MY CAT!!!
January 14th 10, 06:24 AM
I have a cat and his name is Hendrix. He is about 10 months old. We
recently left him with our neighbors and upon our return we discovered
he has a strange discharge coming from his nose which is like a brown
color. The membranes in his eyes are protruding upward almost making
him look cross-eyed. He is very lethargic and is sleeping a lot. His
eyes are very runny. Our neighbors that we had cat sit, have a cat
and a pet rat. Their house smells really bad (like kitty crap and
urine) so it probably wasn't the best place for him to stay. At any
rate, we don't know what he may have or what to do because we are
broke from the holidays and our cat needs some kind of assistance.

Kitty is very sick, and needs you now. He needs medicine. If youhave
any leftover antibiotics in your house, from your own doctor, divide
the dose you took in about 4 and give him the 1/4 dose once a day
until you can get him to the Vet. Also smear some Neosporin up his
nose couple times a day. Use cotton ball or tip of wascloth dipped in
Bactine and wash his outer eyes (donot put it IN his eyes). If he
werenot so sick for so long, this treatment would probably work within
There is a disease called something like Rihno bla bla for which you
couldhave gotten shots for him. When you take him to the Vet. you
should maybe consider still getting him that shot, because i doubt
hewill ever get over this (soon to become) chronic condition.
Some kitties are like babies, they need their shots, while others seem
to never get any illness. Your kitty, as you now know, is very human-
like, so from now on you will do much better with his care . . . I
think the breed and breeding has a lot to do with it a kitty's health.
Truth will set you free, said Jesus, in John 8:32. So does this mean
weare in slavery? Yup.

I had one of my male cats neutered at the local Humane Society in
Redding, CA and they sent him home with a terrible Respiratory Illness
that spread over night to my other two cats.
Haven Humane Society refused to treat my cat[s] and I panicked when they
went into dark places to [die, I thought].
I ended up getting a pound of Tetracycline for farm animals for
something like $5-6 bucks that was water soluble. A little bit goes a
long way. In 3 days all my cats were back to normal. To play it safe I
treated the water for ten (10) days. After the fifth (5th) day I cut the
dose in half.
I think a gram of tetracycline treats 1 gallon of water. I eventually
just poured half the original dose into an empty gallon jug and
topped-off each jug. Tetracycline is a broad spectrum antibiotic. Kind
of what that other guy suggested.
Change the water every day whether its treated or not. I clean or scoop
my litter boxes twice daily also.
If you can't get the meds in the nose like the other post suggested;
just apply a little on their front paws. They'll lick it off and at the
least ... get it into their system. I apply vitamin paste in this
fashion since they fight me otherwise or ignore it on their bowls.
