I am a human with a cold. A bad one with upper respiratory glop and nonsense that is just not letting go and it's been about a week and 1/2. I've been to the Dr. who swabbed my nose for flu (actually it felt like he was aiming for the inside back of my skull but that's a rant for another day and thread..) and it came back as 'not flu'. 4 days into my cold one of our cats started the same gloppy eyes, sneezing, coughing and pouting and moping around the house that I'd been doing. After a few days of watching her and giving her extra love I decided maybe I should isolate her so she can eat and nap at her leisure and not worry about the dogs or my DS bugging her. (Wish someone would do that to me..) Yesterday her son started sneezing and moping. It's not so unusual for him- he snores and makes all kinds of goofy breathing noises (yeah, I'm still taking about cats....) but then, just now, another cat in the house started sneezing. What the heck? Is this some kind of goofy fluke that we're all reaching for the kleenex box 20 times an hour? Can humans pass colds to cats? Should I take all of us into the vet for the nose/brain swabs? Have the cats and I become allergic to pets? My son and husband are fine. Not a runny nose between them. I'm out of ideas, patience and feeling just plain grumpy. Anybody here know about cat colds and people colds? We have 3 dogs, 5 fish, 2 mice and Henrietta the chicken and I swear if I hear the smallest sneeze out of anyone else I'm liable to run screaming from the building! hellllllpppppp!!
