Other than wiping her gooky eyes and nose with a warm cloth just to clean it off and make her more comfortable I'm thinking the only thing that's going to do any good is antibiotics. Personally I think leaving the other cat outside is a big mistake only because chances are he'll come home with the same thing. Your best best is to confine her to a bathroom or bedroom or laundry room or something for her quarantine and get her to the vet asap.

Cats are very prone to upper respitory infections. Best thing to do is as tracy says get her to the vet and get some antibiotics for her, and she'll clear up. Tracy's also right on the money with the situation with the other cat, the other one will eventually get sick and pass it to your inside one again if they make contact again. IF you still keep the other one out, if you don't have them already, I'd strongly recommend that you are up to date on evey vacc in the book for cats especially leukemia, as common as that is. Because your kitties are playing Russian Roulette for a serious sickness otherwise.

Best wishes for the kitty!

Liz, do you have a holistic or homeopathic vet? If not you should really establish a relationship with one for times like this.

whether you want to pursue holistic, traditional, or complementary medicine, your animal NEEDS to see a vet and NOW. its been 2 weeks since you first mentioned she was sick, and in THAT post i urged you to see a vet. she really needs medical attention.
