Patches went to the vet's

I decided it's better not to wait until it get's too bad. She did eat breakfast, and was playing. I took her and she has another lung infection, and was put on antibitocs. But my SIL was working, so she drilled him and Patches really liked her being there (she didn't flip out as much). Another week, to see if it's not better, then running more tests to see the underlying reason she is having these issues. I have been asking for about a year to start testing her for anything or anything but they kept shrugging it off, but she walked in and said this they finally agreed (yet I'm paying for it anyways - if she gets the tests done I'm paying for them). It was only $168.00 today, and I have to go back soon to get her more of the supplements.

I'm glad to hear that you were able to get Patches to the vet and they were able to get her on antibiotics so that she will hopefully start to feel like her old self soon. I'm also glad to hear that it is a repiratory infection that is treatable that she is suffering from and not something that could cost you thousands of dollars and might not even be able to return her to her previous state of being. I hope that the antibiotics get her cleared up quickly.

I agree completely, it could be a lot worse. But she get's this every so many months, and her immune system is very low. So I want to find the route cause of why it's so often.

Poor kitty. Sounds like she needs some 'nip, a belly rub and a marathon of documentaries on birds in addition to her antibiotics. At least, that is the advice given by my three; my youngest is especially keen on the bird documentary suggestion.

She got to sleep in the *big girl bed* i.e. my bed. She's slowly starting to feel better still coughing but a little flemy so it's lossening in the lungs. I didn't know they had a bird documentary I will have to look this.

Poor Patches... its hard to have rescued sick kittens and they grow up to be sick cats. Still, that's part of the challenge of rescue isn't it?

Yes, and it's one in a million. I grew up with rescue cats, and never had this issue. Hopefully, one day her immune system will be strong enough and this wont happen. My SIL said the same thing today when I went.
