I am sorry to hear you are worried about Purrdi. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

How long has she been like this: sleeping most of the time, drinking more water, snoring and sneezing?

If you check her gums are they a normal bright pink or do they seem pale?

Is she eating as much as ever, or do you think she is eating less?

Thanks for the additional information; since I can't see and examine her, the more information I have the more I can help.
