My cat is sick and I'm worried
Ever since we got our cat from the shelter 10 days ago, she's been sick and I've been worried. She was sneezing a little at the beginning, then it got better, but now she is kind of snoring/wheezing and I can hear mucus in her respiratory track. Same thing for eating and going to the bathroom. She didn't eat a lot at the beginning, which I attributed to the surgery (she had just been sterilized), then it got better. But the past couple of days she's only eating 1/4 to half of the food I give her again. She sleeps a lot too.
I tried to get a vet appointment earlier (we're scheduled to see a vet in a nearby clinic in 4 days), but they have no opening. I will go to the walk-in clinic of the shelter when they open this afternoon. That's a half hour drive though, but I'm too worried.
My boyfriend thinks I shouldn't worry so much and that the stress of moving her around will make things worse. Anyone?
