My cat has a very stuffy nose this is not abnormal for him this time of year it tends to clear up on it own but he sounds so stuffed up it has me worried. I called the vet they will see him Monday AM .Is there anything I can to for his stuffy nose from now until Monday .He is eating and drinking fine I am just worried.
Yes, please do let us know how the vet visit went. Did the vet diagnose a respiratory infection and prescribe antibiotics?
There are one or two simple things you can do to ease your kitty's stuffyness. There is a great product called Gentle Vapors, it's and OTC petiatric product (google it) that plugs in and produces nice, natural vapors of lavendar, menthol... stuff like that. Breathing it helps clear the sinuses.
I usually put the cat in the bathroom, plug in the Gentle Vapors (since the bathroom is small, the vapors are more concentrated) and run the shower hot (breathing the steam helps too) and let the cat rest on some towels for a while.
