Poppaea has a URI
I just had her at the vet on Monday for blood work, to check on her kidneys. Things are pretty much the same there, and I continue to give her 100 ml of fluids and kidney wet food (Purina NF).
He diagnosed the URI and also a lower resp infection and gave me some Doxycycline to give her .35 ml every other day. I just gave her her third dose today. She still is weezing some. He wants to hear back from me today maybe see her again, or give her some more medication.
I have her in the bedroom with "my" cats, because she's been with them since she came down with this. I have my two fosters in the living room. I'm continuing to keep them separate because I don't want the fosters to pick up the URI. (They have a potential new home to go to in a couple of weeks.) They were just finishing medication for URIs when I brought them here from the Michigan Humane Society.
I don't know if Sparkler is catching that. (See my other message here in Cat Health about her appetite being off.) I don't have another place to isolate Poppaea, because I only have the two rooms, living room and bedroom.
Would the steam treatment that Karen's vets recommended for Mary's Coco Puff be helpful perhaps? Any other suggestions?

I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).
I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
