Hi,

It is hard to say what the exact problem but sneezing in a kitten is usually not all that serious. Have you had the kitty long? It may well be s/he is just scared of the new environment.

I am posting two articles that discuss these symptoms and I hope the little one feels better soon!

regards,

CyberKitten

No, sneezing alone is not always serious, but the vomiting, diarrhea, refusal to eat or drink ARE serious.

Does your cat go outside? Could he have been poisoned?

Hi again,

Oh my gosh! I had not noticed the part about the kitten not eating!! And combined with diarrhea (I can never spell that, sigh!) can lead to dehydration. And that in any small animal is VERY serious!! Have you tried to feed the kitty yourself? With a syringe or eye dropper? Or tempting her with her favourite foods?

Hopefully, you can get her to the vet ASAP!! I once spent a long night with my elderly bunny when he had a case of runny rabbit buttons. (They are usually not at all objectionable and hard). It turned out to be not at all serious, more the result of the finniky digestive system of an elderly lapin. But just like little children, little ones with four paws also need to be seen VERY quickly when they have not eaten. Or refse to eat.

Good luck and let us know how she is!!

Did you take your kitty to the vet? What was wrong? How is the kitty now?
