Coughing and sneezing can be caused by a variety of factors. Coughs may appear whenever a cat's immune system is deficient due to a viral infection. And inflammation caused by a viral or bacterial infection is the most common cause. Sneezing is caused by something in his environment that stimulates your pet’s respiratory system, rather than by a specific disease.

Coughing in cats is caused by pneumonia, bronchitis, as well as heart disease, and chronic cough can occur if it leads to asthma, so accurate examination and diagnosis are required at animal hospitals. A chronic cough can lead to asthma.

The fact that she hasn't been eating and has been hiding suggests she is feeling quite unwell.

For home care, you can try to make her more comfortable by ensuring she stays hydrated. You might also use a humidifier in the room where she spends most of her time or bring her into the bathroom while you take a hot shower to help clear her nasal passages with the steam.

However, given the severity and combination of her symptoms, especially the stomach pain and lack of appetite, it's crucial to get her checked by a veterinarian as soon as possible. These symptoms could indicate a more serious underlying condition that requires professional treatment.
