Q. My cat is sneezing and eyes are watering. Are there any home remedies available?

A. The best thing you can do for her is supportive treatment. Clean the nasal discharge, so that she can breathe better, encourage eating by offering more tasty food, slightly warmed up little at times. This could be white fish, tuna in water, sardines, plain boiled chicken, recovery.

You can also use olbas oil for steaming, make sure you don't burn yourself or the cat though. You should put your cat in a carrier, and in front of the carrier put sn empty litter tray with some hot water and then add 1 drop of olbas oil. Put a towel on top of the tray and the cat carrier, so that your cat inhales the steam produced. This would need to be only for 10 minutes, three times a day.

Your cat should gradually feel better in 1 to 3 weeks. It's important that she eats something, though!
