Q. My cat has no appetite and is slugglish. Also has a stream of mucus coming from his nose. No cough or sneezing. Mucus is clear.
A. Offer a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts. Mix in a teaspoon of baby food to stimulate the appetite. Cat foods with strong odors may also get him eating again. A 10-15 minute stay in a steamed bathroom (run a hot shower but do not place the cat in the tub) may also help keep the chest clear. See your vet if the appetite does not return or the discharge continues.
