    Munchie's Many Issues

    just go to the vet and ask for a collection tube for a culture. try to catch it as soon as the cat sneezes it out and bring the tube back to vet.  will take a few days for a report and sensitivity result.  the hardest part is having the tube handy when the snot flies!
