    I have noticed Sooty 'licking' her lips quite often today (only way to describ it) and whils she was sitting on me she shivered every so often. I have heard a few sneezes over the last few days, but could that be change of weather? The corners of her eyes have always had 'sleep' in them and the vet never said anything about it. She has been vaccinated and has been inside pretty much since then. Her appetite is fine, her toilets are normal and she still is her cuddly self. Is there anything else I should be looking out for? How does she sound to you guys?
    Thank you :)

    Really hard to say but could she have sat in the draught in the good weather and caught a chill perhaps? My cats lick their lips when they have a runny nose (they also use their paw to rub their noses). I would keep an eye on her and see how she is over the next 24 hours.

    Do you happen to have a pet vitamin thingy that you could give her to give her system a boost?

    Like Hobbs2004 says, it hard to say. If your cat seems worse since your post though, it might be worth getting getting her into a morning surgery tomorrow just to be on the safe side. Guess they would just give her an anti-biotics, but that might be all that's needed.
