Quinnlee is sneezing :(
 
Quinnlee has been sneezing for the past couple days. It's the most pathetic sound ever and it terrifies me. She only just recently got over the infected quill. I feel terrible that she is ill again.

Her nose is definitely wetter than usual. She has sneezed 3 times over the past hour.

Is this something that should run its course, or am I off to the vet on Monday?

I'd say off to the vet. :( A URI can turn into pneumonia so quickly I'd get her in this weekend if at all possible. Poor Quinlee, I hope she feels better!

Yeah, I'm definitely gonna do a vet trip. Do you think she will be okay til monday, when I can get her to her vet?
I already had to run my kittens to the vet today because of a bad virus flare-up.

Her vet closed a bit ago, but I'm going to rush her in Monday morning :cry:
Blaaaah why does this happen :/

I don't know if there's a specific timeline for URIs. Hopefully someone more experienced will be able to answer that. :(

Generally, sooner is better than later. But as long as she doesn't appear to be in pain or discomfort, I think waiting isn't too bad. How did her visit go?
