Cause of dry hacking cough in cat???

I just adoped a cat three days ago and she has been hacking like she has a hairball but nothing comes up. I gave her mineal oil but that didn't help either. She was treated for worms at the Human Society so I was sure it was a hairball but nothing comes up. I have another kitty and I do not want him to get sick. Does anyone know what causes a dry hacking cough with no sneezing???

Does she do it at a particular time? One of mine used to dry hack a lot after eating because he is a taller kitty and needs his food bowl higher to aid digestion.

If you have recently got her from a shelter, I would have her checked by your own vet for the sake of your other cat and your new cat's health, cats often pick up stuff at shelters that isn't diagnosed before they leave or are ill going into the shelter but the signs don't even show before they leave the shelter.
