Answer
Hi
Sometimes there is just no simple or cheap answer to a problem and when it comes to our pets health this is more often as not the case.

It sounds like she may have cat flu which can be very nasty indeed, please see my page here for more info about this

of course having her properly diagnoses by a vet would be the best option but otherwise all you can do is to nurse her through and make sure she gets plenty of fluids as dehydration can be a killer.

i hope she makes a full recovery soon.

best wishes Kate
