    OK. As some here may remember, I got landed with a cat. She and I get on pretty well and so far all is pretty well..... However... She started sneezing a day or so ago... it's Spring... do cats get allergies or should I take her to the vet? She's still eating me out of house and home (I swear she is the reincarnation of a certain someone.... I should not digress....) She seems fine... happy etc.... but... should I be worried?

    My cat goes on sneezing binges too. The dogs sneezes daily. I think it's an animal thing. . . .or maybe our places are dusty. :D

    Glad to know you kept the cat. What's her name?

    Minni. I call her a variety of things.... 'stripey cat', 'hey you, damned animal', 'minni one-eye lopez'.... She seems to be fine with any of these. :lol:

    Tis the season for infectious diseases. Either take her to the vet to get her shots, or pick them up yourself and zap her.

    My cat, Shadow . . . .yes, he's all black, kid named him . . . does NOT like my 13 year old. At all. I think it's mostly her voice but he just doesn't like her and hisses at her and meows at her a lot. I yell at him like he's a kid. lol Sometimes we call him Rick (SNL skit). He also gets very persnickety when it comes to eating sometimes. I'll feed him but he won't eat it and will go a day just grazing on the dry stuff but he's hungry for some wet food. After a day I'll replace the wet food and tell him that this it is, if you're hungry eat because there isn't anything else your getting. I swear to God he ponders this for a bit then goes over and eats the food but only after I tell him to and make it clear that I'm not giving him anything else.

    Tsk, tsk, bones. It's spring. Yes, cats sneeze...but a cat that is sneezing a lot has a virus. Unless it has always sneezed (I had a Persian once called "Snuffy" because her sinuses gave her no end of trouble). And if you wait too long to innoculate, it's too late.

    Cats will begin to sneeze, often and sometimes violently, if they do not get enough trash dumpster time. If you want your cat to be completely healthy, they need to spend at least two hours a week inside of a trash dumpster as it is one of their natural habitats. Take a close look at city cats. You never see them sneezing and it's because they have complete access to trash dumpsters. Another thing too. You never see cats hanging around the back alleys beside of Chinese eating establishments. It's another observation I have made.

    as I described in a previous thread little old mamama kitty was vomitting, and had to go to the doctor, I asked the vet then if it could be related to spring allergies and she said "not to this degree" she thought it may have been pancreatitis.. she also has sneezing, and runny watery eyes,, she has however resumed eating and drinking on her own and I no longer have to jab her with needles. thank god..
