    We just got back from taking Coco to the vet.
    She is coughing so much and has a runny nose with a green discharge and is sneezing also.
    She also is very congested.
    Cleo and Wrinkles got sick from the last cat show and passed it to Coco.
    There were over 100 people that touched my cats at that show.
    Also my husband fainted last night and we had to call 911.
    He was throwing up non stop and got a rash all over.
    They said it was a bad allergic reaction.

          Oh no! Is your husband ok today? I sure hope so! Saying a prayer for Coco--this URI stuff is bad news. I hope she gets better soon.

            That's scary! :( I hope your husband and Coco get to feeling better real soon. I'm also curious what he had a reaction to?

                Thanks Everyone,
                I think it was the sauce on the ribs and the dip.
                I got real sick on christmas also and at a cat show but he did not faint those times.We believe the sauce on the carne asada caused it at christmas and some cake at the cat show and taco bell.
                The vet told me to give Coco fluids every day instead of every other day.
                The shot was Dexamethasone and the med is Doxycycline.
                She threw up on the way home.
                Coco already takes Baytril everyday.
                Oreo is coughing now also.

                Mine had the same meds--what did your vet mean that you should give her fluids every day rather than every other day? What kind of fluids are you talking about?

                Thanks Everyone,
                Sussi Coco has CRF so she gets sub q's every other day.
                The vet wants me to do them every day for 1-2 weeks.
                She is dyhydrated because of being sick.

                Thanks, Jacky--didn't know what CRF was, so googled it and now I do. Bless you for taking good care of them both! (Your hubby and the kitty). I will remember you in my prayers.

                Thanks Everyone,
                My husband is better now and I will make sure he does not eat that food anymore.
                I think I will lsteam the bathroom for Coco.
                She was given 5 months to live a year ago.
                Susi,
                Coco has Asthma and high bp also and a heart murmur ect.
                I am doing everything I can for her.
                CRF only has one ending.

                Jacky, the fact that she is still with us is great testimony to the fact that you are doing all anybody could--you are a wonderful mama. She has had a long life-- no doubt because of you. Every cat on this earth should be half as lucky!

                Thanks Everyone,
                My husband seems ok now.
                Coco and Oreo both are coughing.
                I will need to get her antibiotics also.

                Thanks Everyone,
                My husband is ok now and we bought allergy meds today.
                It seems when one cat gets sick it starts going to all of them.
