I have wondered if Sneaker's sneezing/breathing problems could be allergy 
related.  The vet seems to think it's herpes virus...
  I have started adding lysine to his food.

    This sounds like what I am going through with Junior. He is now off 
antibiotics and getting chlorpheneramine to relieve congestion. He is about the 
same after a month. I think his is herpes as well. He also has the eye crud 
typical of herpes. He has been receiving L Lysine for over a year. I can only 
assume it slows the herpes virus down.
   
  A little over a month ago I decided to change his canned catfood. He is now 
eating Blue Buffalo Spa Selects. He likes the fishy kinds the most. He was 
having issues with his coat and this was a test to see if it helped. His fur 
was all over the house and always came out in clumps. I am happy to report he 
is no longer losing fur in clumps. His coat is still scruffy as my vet calls 
it, but I think that is more a grooming issue. Before he was on canned IAMS. He 
still free feeds on IAMS multicat. I have several porkers in the house, I was 
hoping this would help. Not sure it has made any difference other than the 
catfood bill going up. I need to weigh one of them to see.
   
  A very nasty day here in VA. Hope everyone is warm.

    I'm currently having similar problems with my Sneaker.  His lungs are 
clear.  He has had an upper resp. infection for weeks now, months really.  they 
did a culture and found he had a staph infection, but that part is cleared up. 
He is on his 4th round of antibiotics..... the vet thinks it's viral and could 
be herpes.  He hasn't been a ton of help. If anyone has any ideas I would love 
to hear them.

    Laurie,
This really got my curiosity, my Joey has episodes where his purr 
sounds wet, rumbly and his breathing too, is how I would described it to 
my vet. She has checked his lungs when he is having one of these 
episodes and says his lungs are clear, that it is contained to his 
sinuses. He has never had coughing but I'm curious, can he have asthma 
without coughing. These epsodes don't seem to bother him, they affect 
me more than him, he doesn't seem to notice them at all.
