The stress of a new environment & new person + sneezing makes me think he has a herpes virus.
Herpes, like the cold sore herpes in people, "comes out" during stressful times in the cat's life. Instead of causing a cold sore, it causes upper respiratory signs in cat--sneezing (clear discharge), watery eyes, maybe some congestion.
You can safely give him some Lysine; even if it isn't herpes, it won't hurt him. It comes OTC as a 500 mg tablet (at least here in the US). Crush 1/2 of the tablet in some canned food twice a day until your friend returns.
thank you very much
Hope that takes care of Felix's problem! Should he stop eating, develop a yellow or green discharge from his nose, or become more lethargic, do take him to your friend's vet for a check up.
yes I will dothat.He has just jumped up on the key board purring VERY loudly.Perhaps his way of saying thankyou !!!!!!1
:) My pleasure! Have a good night!
