Cat Flu: Keeping Your Kitty Feeling Purrfect

CAT FLU VACCINE

Is your furry friend sniffling and sneezing more than usual? They might have a case of the cat flu! Don’t worry, it’s not the same kind of cold you get, but it can still make your kitty feel miserable.

What is Cat Flu?

Cat flu is a contagious illness caused by yucky viruses. It spreads easily between cats through sneezes, coughs, or even sharing food bowls.

Spotting the Signs:

Here’s how to tell if your cat might have cat flu:

  • Sneezes and coughs: Just like a human cold!
  • Gooey eyes and nose: Their eyes and nose might be watery or have icky stuff.
  • Feeling warm: Their nose or ears might feel hotter than usual.
  • Trouble breathing: They might wheeze or have trouble catching their breath.
  • Loss of appetite: Feeling sick can make them lose their interest in food.
  • Sore mouth or eyes: They might have painful sores.

Keeping Your Cat Healthy:

The best way to protect your cat from cat flu is with a superhero shield called a vaccination! These vaccines help your cat fight off the flu before it makes them sick. Kittens usually start getting vaccinated at 8 weeks old, with booster shots to keep their shield strong.
