    Hi everyone

    I am a little worried about my kitten.

    She's about 14/15 weeks old and I've noticed that she always has a wet nose and lately, seems to be sneezing and wheezing a bit too.

    She also seems to have weepy eyes...

    I am a bit worried about her as today she is sneezing/wheezing a bit more then usual.

    Any ideas of how I can help her?

    :(

    Thanks

    I'd get her down to the vets sounds like your kitty has a cold.

    My kitten had the same thing when she was a few weeks old but no sneezing, just the really wet nose. She was also very lethargic, not eating and basically stopped being her usual kitty self. A course of antibiotics got her back on track in no time!

    It's very worrying when they get ill, as they can't tell you whats wrong, I think a trip to the vets would be the best thing.

    Keep us updated

    I does sound like flu I had a kitten once that had the same symptoms as you have described and the vet precribed antibiotics and she was fine after a week so I would take her straight to the vets

    let us know how your little one gets on :)

    Also if you have other cats for now at least keep her separate as in separate loos, separate water/food dishes until you know what your dealing with:)Hope the all goes well at the vets:)
