My cat, Lyra, has a nasty cold. She's sneezing and coughing and having a hard time eating. ...
Should I take her to the vets or is a cold something they get over on their own like humans?
Definitely take her to a vet. It could just be a cold, or it could be a respiratory tract infection, parasite, or virus that can cause serious issues. If she's up on her vaccinations, the chances of anything life-threatening do go down, but there are still some pretty serious things that it could be.
wychic is right...if shots are up to date, may not be a bad problem...sounds almost like Distemper, which is serious.

I've had a cough for over a week. I went to the doctor and then it wasn't bad so she did nothing.Then it got worse and I have been taking cough medicine religiously and coughing up a storm (but good to get the phlegm out- I just quit smoking......)So, I guess I'm ok.any ideas?Thanks so much
