    Think she is allergic to people? I wonder if they make pills for that [​IMG]

    Ugh. I have owned cats for 40 years, usually more than one at a time, and never had to deal with that. It would become an outside cat in this household.

    We have a dog that has severe allergies starting in March until a good hard freeze comes along. Her nose runs, eyes water and she loses all her fur. I have spent a lot of money on her over the years and nothing seems to work long term. Prednisone just makes her crazy.

    At least she doesn't sneeze.

    Never had a cat with allergies though and I've had way more cats than dogs over the years.

    Tell the kitty I said "Bless You!" next time he sneezes.

    We've got a cat who sneezes a lot. It seems to be seasonal since it comes on stronger when my daughter and I have our bouts of seasonal allergies. We take her to the vet and they give her a steroid shot, which costs about $20 and clears the problem up in a few days. We have to get the shot about twice a year, only when her sneezing flares up.

    Well,

    My cat is allergic to:

    bluegrass
    orchardgrass
    timothy
    brome
    ragweed
    pigweed
    marsh elder
    cottonwood
    aspen
    box elder
    maple
    cladosporium-fungi
    penicillium-fungi
    candida albicans-yeast
    pullularia-fungi
    venison
    corn -this is a biggie since most cat food is made from it
    white potato
    brewers yeast
    alfalfa
    staph

    He is sensitive to:

    vernal grass
    sycamore
    saccharomyces-fungi
    flax seed
    tobacco smoke

    He has lots of symptoms ranging from sneezing to scratching himself til he bleeds. I have him on special food that cost $30.00 for an 8lb bag, but I cannot prevent grass clippings or hay pieces from coming in the house on our clothes or shoes.

    He is doing better now though that his diet has changed, the only symptoms I see is ocassional scratching when we mow the lawn.
