Kitten Wheezing-mystery!

I have a kitten with a hard to figure out problem! I got him from a shelter about 3 weeks ago, he had a little wheeze then, and had just been neutered, and had a undescended testicle, which that had to pull down to fix him, because that's the shelters policy before adoption.
They told us he came from a house with 60! cats, that was busted up a few months earlier, he was just a baby when it happened. The kitten, Butters, is 15 weeks old now. I took him to the vet and they put him on Clavamox for 2 weeks, but they didn't give me enough meds and I ran out in 11 days...Dr. didn't want to do another round of antibiotics, even though he is still stuffy and wheezing.
He has no discharge from the nose, eyes very slightly watery once and awhile, no sneezing or coughing. Butters eats well and plays, but wheezes a lot when he is running around. So the Dr. is not much help, they don't know what is wrong, his mom was tested for Feline leukemia/AIDS, and was negative. They tested Butters last week for the same and he was negative. He has been getting L-lysine for a week, doesn't seem to do anything but we're keeping it up.

I would love to help this poor little guy! Anyone have any ideas?
