I would want to know what's causing the cat's throat to be inflamed first before trying anything. Could the kitty have eaten something irritating or toxic? Does it possibly have stomatitis? Does the cat have bad breath? Is he eating okay? Any drooling, vomiting, lip-licking?

What about a vet visit?

In the meantime, slippery elm bark syrup can be soothing to mucus membranes, but it really would be a good idea to figure out the cause first.

Does the cat go outside, if it does your friend should made sure there are no toxic plants or flowers the cat can get into. Easter Lilly plants are very toxic including the leaves if a cat just rubbed against the leaf of an Easter Lilly it will toxic to the cat if the cat lick their fur. I was told this at a vet office.
