Our cat Penelope was recently diagnosed with feline Herpes. She is an older feral cat, probably at least 15, maybe older. She has had a cold for months. Plus she throws up a lot. She seems to sleep most of the day, but does like to be petted. has anyone else experienced this disease?

Yes, it comes and goes....appears like a cold. We gave him alternately antiviral meds and antibiotics but truthfully we gave it up. No a big help....I can tell he feels a little bad with sniffles but it doesn't last long.

No real cure. Right now he throws it off but don't know about when he's elderly....

Ferals are more prone to upper respiratory problems later in life. She's possibly throwing up a lot of swallowed mucus.

Mine has never lived outdoors, but has upper respiratory problems and the house is covered in snot. The vet says her three are the same. This year it took three courses of antibiotics to get my cat better. Last year it took 3 days. I'm not looking forward to next year.
