Q. Hello, my cat has the sniffles and is very tired. He is approximately five years old and loves to run around the house drink water and eat.

A. It is possible your cat may have a cold or the beginnings of an upper respiratory infection. Cats may have a runny nose or eyes with clear discharge, cough, wheeze, have a fever or become more lethargic (tired). If you see any other signs of illness such as green or yellow discharge from the eyes and nose, it may indicate a secondary infection has formed. It is best to keep your cat eating and drinking and allow him to have plenty of rest to help him recover. If you see signs of secondary infection, symptoms worsen, or if symptoms do not get better in a few days, then scheduling an appointment with your vet for additional care is best.
