My two year old tortie Katzen came home from her last vet visit with the sneezes. Her baby brother Marco Polo, age 3 months, had them too - but he got over them in a few days. It's now about a week and Katzen is definitely getting more sneezey. Normally I would take her right to the vet, but the problem is our car has died so I have to wait till the weekend to hitch a ride with a friend.

She's still eating / drinking / playing as normal. Her eyes are clear with no discharge coming from them, but she's very sneezy and keeps washing her face as if she's trying to get her nose to stop that.

Is there anything I can do to make her more comfortable until we can get to the vet to have her checked out this weekend?

I've been watching my cats for colds since I took in a foster who had a cold. The foster was obviously under the weather but never lost her appetite. Once she started sneezing yellow goobers I was given some antibiotics for her to avoid any worsening secondary infection, but if your cat is only sneezing clear snot and eating/drinking/playing then try not to worry too much! (Easier said than done, I totally understand!)

All her snot has been clear--- and I know this because unfortunately she has sneezed quite a few times ON me. =0

And she spent a good portion of her day visiting the food bowl / drinking / wrestling with her baby brother. So I think she is feeling mostly okay -- I'm just really worried because this is our first cold.
