Cats/My persian cat has a cold

Question
I believe my Persian has a cold. She's sneezes all the time, has a runny nose and eyes.  Is there anything I can do as a home remedy?

Answer
Hi
no not really, just like our colds we usually have to just sit it out. But of course make sure she has a warm quite place she can sleep without being disturbed and make sure that she drinks plenty, so that she does not become dehydrated. Also wipe away any mucus from the eye and nose to help keep her airways clear.
