Cat Allergies

I have asked a similiar question before, but here goes.
If cats eat something that they may be allergic to would they have symptoms like congestion or tiredness?

I wrote about my cat Mike a few weeks ago. He had gotten sick AGAIN. I went to the vet to get some Amoxy. I mentioned that Mike had been shedding more than usual. He said it could be allergies. The vet took his temp and it was normal.He was fine within a day. Actually, way more playful than usual. It's been a couple of weeks since I have stopped the amoxy. He has yet to be sick...still waiting though. It seems a few weeks after I stop the amoxy, he is showing the same symptoms.
I have done what has been recommended here(spring water..etc.)
I had been giving him milk, cheese, and egg before he got sick. I have also stopped that. I didn't know those thing were bad for him. I also be sure to leave the windows closed, in case pollen or something was causing it.

He's not sick now, but I am still trying to figure out why he was getting sick. Any ideas? My friend doesn't think it would the feline leukemia because otherwise, antibiotics wouldn't help.

It is possible that some food allergies might make your cat have these types of symptoms... but there are other things which cause these types of symptoms.
I currently have a "foster kitty" living in my home. She has heart problems AND Asthma. She does pretty well, when she stays in the guest room, away from my other cats, but if she interacts with the other cats in the household, she gets overly tired and winded... and it sometimes aggrivates her asthma.
You might want to ask the vet about the possibility your kitty might have a mild version of asthma. If that is it, you might be able to give him a medicine similar to an antihistamine, when he seems to have flare ups, instead of the amoxy.
Just an idea.
I'm very glad, that for now, at least -- your kitty seems to be better.
