Our vet (best Ive ever encounter in dealing with cats) solved the mystery. The cat brought in on her fur a pollen or plant dust that she was allergic to!

I've had an experience where I broke out in a rash from a dog....a friend had two dogs, whenever I went to her house, the one would cause my arms and top of my hands to break out and get itchy. After I played with her, I would wash the area and then stay away from her, it would start to fade. I never had a reaction to the other dog. We thought about there being something on her coat that I had reacted to, but both dogs went out into the same yard at the same time. And it happened every time I went there. So I really think it was the dog herself and not something environmental.
