    Our cat Louie, a 12yo female, is seemingly unable to meow properly at the moment. Instead of the typical meow sound, she is currently only able to make a rather raspy, squeaky sound, and this has been ongoing for the last week or so. Otherwise, she appears to be perfectly healthy; she is eating and moving normally, is displaying no external signs of pain or illness. (We don’t think it’s laryngitis, having examined the various symptoms, but obviously don’t know this for certain). Unfortunately, she is very difficult to catch; she is resolutely an outdoor cat who refuses to come inside our house.

    We have thought that the recent very hot weather may have been a factor (we live in Cyprus, where no appreciable rain falls between April and October), but our other cat has not experienced the same problem (although she is much more of an indoor cat than Louie).

    Our veterinary clinic has advised us that they really need to examine her physically in order to make a proper diagnosis, but for reasons stated above this is not practical.

    Would anyone be able to suggest any medication which may ease this condition, without requiring taking her to the vet for examination?

    Very many thanks in anticipation of your assistance.
