    Are you using the same litter as she has been using previously. Some litters are "dustier" than others and may cause sneezing or if you have used anything like Shake N Vac in the carpet that may also cause it.

    Hope she is okay.:)

    Hi,cats can still get cat flu virus even if they have been jabbed,they just will get lesser syptoms.You did the right thing getting her seen quickly,its the secondary infections,like chest infection/pneumonia that causes the real problems.:)

    Poor little mite. I hope the anti-biotics work and she is right as rain soon. I wish I had advice for you but i'm not experienced in the matter sorry.
    Aside form her being sniffly, how is she getting on? Bet it's exciting having her at last :D

    Aww I hope the poor little thing feels better soon.

    I wouldn't worry too much the vet has proberly given her anti-biotics as a precautionary measure.
