I posted in October about our Kitty passing away and now I'm afraid we may lose our two and half year old cat Lily. We adopted a new kitten named Charlie last month from a homeless shelter and he became sick with an upper respiratory infection a couple of days after we brought him home. I took him to the vet and they prescribed some antibiotics. He was up and running around and feeling better in a matter of only a couple of days. Unfortunately even though they were kept in separate rooms our cat Lily caught the infection. I brought Lily in to the vet about ten days ago and they prescribed the same antibiotics as Charlie. Unfortunately she didn't respond as well as he did. After seven days of antibiotic therapy she continued to sneeze uncontrollably and also developed a yucky sounding hacking cough. I took her back to the vet last Wednesday and she was promptly diagnosed with pneumonia after the vet listened to her lungs. She was prescribed the name brand version of the same antibiotic plus given an antibiotic booster shot. Lily has now been on the medications for 5 days and is not showing any signs of improving. She will be done with her antibiotics by Thursday morning. At the last visit the vet told me that if Lily doesn't improve then the only treatment would be to hospitalize her. I was given an estimate and it will cost me a minimum of $700! I don't even come close to having that kind of money and there's isn't a person on this planet that I could borrow that amount from. I have no idea what to do. Those antibiotics should have kicked in by now. Charlie was well in only a couple of days but Lily is getting worse by the day. I can't handle losing another cat after our dear sweet Kitty passed away six weeks ago. Lily is so young and I would hate to lose her. I need good thoughts and prayers sent our way.
