Q. My cat has dicharge in both of her eyes and is sneezing as well, what could be the case of this and is there anything I can do without taking her in

A. It sounds like your cat has cat flu. It is normally a viral condition and it shoukd resolve with symptomatic treatment. Encourage feeding by warming up small amount of food, especially tasty food like tuna or fish. Keep him indoors, clean nasal discharge with a bit of cotton wool and lukewarm water. If not eating, take him to see the vet. If eating, your cat should recover completely in 7-10 days. It could reoccurr in the future though and therefore vaccination is recommended.
