I have two cats; one female and one male. The male cat Ferguson is about 1.5 years old and he came down with a “kitty cold” about two weeks ago. He was sneezing a lot through the day and the sneezing continued to the next day. I noticed he wasn't up running around and playing like normal. I kept an eye on him and by the 3rd day he was getting watery eyes and runny nose. He looked pale in the gums and felt like he was running a fever. I read about the apple cider vinegar so on the first night of treatment, I used the half water half vinegar method. I rubbed it on his paws, neck, whiskers, and in front of his ears. But more importantly, I really wanted him to get him hydrated quickly. I gave him chicken bone broth. I was making some chicken gumbo that night anyway and I was boiling a chicken for about an hour. Bones and all. Then I strained out the broth and gave him some after it cooled. Luckily he still had an appetite and he drank a lot of it. That exact next day he looked a thousand times better. I continued both the vinegar and bone broth into the second day and also added water into his soft food. I tried to up his fluids any way I could. Every day he got better and better and by the end of the week all of his symptoms vanished. I'm very happy that my Fergie full of spunk is back in action! I think the Bone broth really helped more than anything because it's chalked full of vitamins and antioxidants. Upping his fluids and getting a boost of vitamins really helped a ton. I really hope this helps all of you.
