    Before you judge me and be rude I'm currently have low funds, my parents hate my cat already, and I don't need more stress.

    I posted about how my cat has been sneezing the past 3 days and everything aside from the sneezing is normal about her. I only wanted to know what would cause her to sneeze other than dust and allergies.

    Some lady decided to harass me about how I'm not taking her to the vet and asking on online...like...really? Do you really have to be rude to me?

    I mentioned about how: 1. I don't drive 2. my parents won't even take my cat to the vet 3. I'm currently low on funds due to buying cat food last week 4. I'm currently trying to get my very first job so that I can keep my cat

    She decided to PM me and harass me further. She got blocked and reported.

    I'm stressed as it is, I don't need more things added to cause me to have a third panic attack for today.

    If this 'rant/vent' post isn't allowed here, let me know or go ahead and delete it.

  2. So sorry you are so stressed. I'm a cat lover from way back. If Puss is showing no other symptoms then I reckon she is probably fine & no need to worry. Probably just sneezing to clear her nasal passages.

    Nyx is acting completely fine other than the sneezing.
    I just put some cat nose drops in her water since our other cat had a nose problem last month so I figured it would at least help a little.

    Cats get colds and the sniffles just like humans do. Barring any other symptoms, your cat will probably be just fine.

    Has anything changed from before-sneezing to after it started? Like change in food, environment, or other pets? Are the sneezes violent or regular type? How often? Could she have gotten something stuck in her nose?

    My family's dog started sneezing after she played outside and they were violent sneezes like she had something in her nose. She sneezed a small amount of blood so we got worried and took her to the vet. They looked up her nose and couldn't find anything but think she had a foxtail sticker up her nose and sneezed it out before getting to the vet.

    If the sneezes aren't violent, just the kind used for dust or something, keep an eye on her but you shouldn't freak out. If it's really concerning you, keep track of how she is sneezing and how often, it's easier to convince others there is an actual issue if you have records.

    I hope she feels better soon and that this is just temporary. :hugs

    I’m so sorry you experience that. Often times, people are more apt to judge than to empathize. Bear hugs! :hugs

    Her sneezes are more like as if she got dust in her nose but aside from our laundry room, there's no dust for her to get into. She hates the laundry room anyway so I don't think she got into dust.
    After someone suggested, I checked her over and she seems perfectly fine.

    Glad she’s doing better. Just keep an eye on her. Be sure she’s eating and drinking. You can give her 1/4-1/2 of a plain Zyrtec if sneezing persists.

    Good! If she gets congested and can’t smell, she may stop eating and that can get bad fast with cats. So keep an eye on that, and keep us posted.
