New here- ferals with URI?
Hello, I am so happy to find this forum!
I moved into a house with ferals living under it. There are 2 mamas and 6 kittens. I have been feeding and watering them. I live in Louisiana so it doesn't get super cold, but it's getting a bit chilly at night. About a week ago, I noticed one of the kittens was blowing his nose and had runny eyes. I removed her from the group and took her to the vet where they gave her antibiotics and tested her for feline leukemia (came back negative! yea!). The vet told me I could put her back with the group, so I did. Now, she is doing much better, but the rest are all sneezing. I really can't afford to take all 8 cats to the vet. I have built them a shelter of boxes, rugs, towels, and blankets on my screened in porch. Do you think that they will get over this on their own?
I have an appointment to get them spayed/neutered in a couple weeks at the SPCA and am hoping they can give antibiotics there if necessary, but I am just wondering if the cats will be ok without those? What do you guys do when your feral cats get this? It just spreads so quickly!
Thanks so much!
