Question by kathy: What can I do for my 12 yr old sick cat?
I have a 12 year old siamese cat that was perfectly healthy until about 4 weeks ago. It started with sneezing, running nose and now he has major upper respiratory congestion. He has been to the vet 4 times and has received several rounds of antibiotics, steroids and cortizone and there has been no change. Now he has stopped eating and hardly drinks. Is there any home remedies that I can do to help him? Like menthol or something to break up the congestion. I tried the shower a few times but I am not sure it helped.

Have you tried giving him baby food? When my cat was sick and wouldn’t eat anything, I put some baby food on a plate and heated it up for her. It was the only thing she’d touch
Make sure to get the really simple starter stuff – check the ingredients, there should only be two or three and one of them should be beef or chicken or veal or another meat. Above all else, there should be no onions.
I would also consider trying a new vet.
