Laryngitis experience by - Vicki
My 8 year old cat Bailey came in one day as usual for his evening meal and when he meowed at me, nothing came out. He had lost his voice completley! Now he was prone to cat flu as he was born with this as a kitten, so I assumed that he perhaps had a nasty bout of that coming on. Over the next day or so he started coughing up clear flem, especially after rubbing his chin and throat, which he seem to enjoy and soothed him. He was still eating and drinking as normal so I checked out this website to see if it could be something medical or perhaps just a dodgey slug he may have eaten. After seeing the symptoms for Laryngitis I took him straight to the vets, they gave him some antibiotics, so lets hope they do the trick.
