Chris - this sounds a *lot* like what Stormy just had.

He only had one lobe full of crud, but coughed a *lot*.

Since what I'm doing *seems* to be helping him - maybe
it will help others. Caveat - we don't know what is
causing the fluid, but since antibiotics are helping,
it's likely a bacterial infection, so this may not help
for anything else.

First off - daily antibiotics - Baytril. Stormy's about
13 lbs, so he gets 1-1/2 of the "22" size.

Second - I give the guys dry food twice a day - Sensible
Choice - and then once a day I make a blender full of a
"soup". Current recipe per day - divided among 7 cats:

1/2 can Sensible Choice cat food
1/2 (approx) lb beef (raw if it's not in danger of going bad)
1/2 cup loosely packed spinach
5 TBS plain oatmeal
1/4 cup plain yogurt (Nancy's)
2-3 droppers Colloidal Silver
2 capsules Echinacea 500 (they seem to not mind the powdered herb)
10 drops grapefruit seed extract

Warm water.

Blend in osterizer, add water to the 5-cup mark. All measurements
are approximate.

Third - he spends the day in the bathroom, with warm, damp air.
I have a warm-mist humidifier, but I can't seem to regulate it
correctly, so I don't leave it going.
