The topic: I think Jackson has a cold


I hope and pray that’s all it is.

Yesterday, late afternoon, he was drooling really badly.  As the night went on, the drooling quit and his nose was very runny.  Still is today, just dripping.  It isn’t constant, but when he lays down, there’s a steady drip.

You might recall that Jackie is the only adult that hasn’t been neutered.  Because we can’t grab him and get him in a carrier without major skin damage. 

Thinking back on it, he has been under the weather, actually sleeping on the loveseat in the family room.  I’m thinking he might have the same thing that Georgie is just now getting over, that Monica has finally overcome and that Joey still has.  Not as bad as it was, but he’s still got a little of it in his system.

I’m going to do an online search for l-Lysine in powdered form.  That would be great to have and just add to their nightly food ration.

Jackie is still eating, he ate some of the Nutro kibble last night, he had dinner with the other cats and later I was able to get him to lick some Wellness off of my index finger.  He ate over a half of a small can.  It went much easier when he was in the bedroom and I was able to shut the door to keep the other cats from trying to the the food before he did.

Could you please keep a good thought for him?

Thinking of Jackson, praying and wishing him well! {{hugs}}

Hi Lisaviolet,
I read above that Jackie feels better, that’s so great.

Tally suggests buying the L-lysine capsules and opening them up and mixing the powder with the gravy from canned cat food.

Have you tried that?  COQ10 capsules the same way is another great immune booster.
