Do cats get seasonal allergies?
My 10year old has had on and off symptoms for the past week (or perhaps I'm just noticing it more because I'm home on vacation this week). She sneezes every now and then, sounds a little raspy when she breathes in her sleep (which I notice because she sleeps next to my head LOL, but she doesnt make sounds any other time) and her eyes have been tearing a little (clear, no color to it whatsoever).
Other than that, however, she's fine; she's actually stomping around on tissue paper behind me as I write, trying to get my attention - so, she's still playful as ever and eats like a piglet.
I noticed the same sort of symptoms last year (early spring, just like now), so could she have some sort of seasonal allergy? She's also a pain about having a window open, no matter the temperature/windy-ness. She loves to hang out and watch the neighbors even when I'm shivering and sending her dirty looks. Could that be contributing to it?
Basically, I'm a huge worrywort when it comes to my furkid and since she loathes the vet so much (I don't know who was more traumatized after her last checkup; her hiding under the bed and in the closet for three days or me looking like I had been mugged with scratches on every available piece of skin) I really don't want to haul her off if I'm overreacting!
