Sneezing old boy

I'm worried about my boy cat, he's about 14 and has been sneezing on and off for a few days. He had a sticky eye this morning, which was sorted with water. I've kept him in and he's drinking water and eating ok, but should I get him to vets or just keep him in and keep an eye on him?
I've had flowers in house so wonder if he might be allergic (don't normally have flowers), but I have been ill and have had about 5 bouquets.

Watching this with interest. My 12 year old female tabby has exactly the same, but spluttering a bit now too. Have phoned vet who said it sounds like cat flu, so she's going to be seen tomorrow. Vet said there's a lot of it around at the moment.

Can you give an update Gotta after you've been to see the vet? Cheers

I've had a mixture, but lilies (up high so they can't get near them) and really strong smelling......
Vacs are all up to date, he's usually pretty healthy.

Will let you know Geepee. In the meantime vet suggested getting them into a steamy room (leave hot shower running) helps with the congestion apparently!

Will get him in the bathroom with me when I have a shower in the morning,Gotta.

Just to update you Geepee. The vet said my cat had a cold, gave her a sachet of granules which I have to give as a pinch over her food once per day for 7 days. Wasn't concerned greatly & said it will pass eventually. Sadly the vet did pick up on some rotten teeth at the back of her mouth which will need taking out. Hope you old boy is bit better today?

Thanks Gotta, was wondering how you got on. My boy seems better, he's been eating lots, sleeping lots and sneezing much less. Will see how he is in the morning, but any sneeze or eye gunk and I'll get him to the vet tomorrow. I got rid of the flowers just in case too!
Eek about your girl and her impending dental treatment.

He seems fine this morning, no sleep filled / gunky eye and no sneezing, so fingers crossed. He's currently snoozing in the bed looking adorable!
