Colds and Cats


Is it possible to catch a cold from a cat, or vice versa? We have both been sneezing all weekend.

They say we begin to look like our pets, perhaps this is just one more step in the process.

Hey, we've all had the "sneezies" around here too. I heat up some organic chicken broth for ours and the steam (test it first, so it's not too hot) helps with the sinuses. You can also take your Boo into the bathroom with you when you shower. Seems to work for ours. I've actually put 1-2 echinacea drops in their water on occasion too. That low dose isn't harmful and it works.

I exaggerated for comic affect. Though I appreciate the advice, Boo is fine. The funny thing is that he did sneeze twice right after I did, but he definitely does not have a cold. I think he was being sympathetic. As for me, I am suffering and taking Cold-Eeze, which from what I can tell, do nothing.

I have a kitty-in-law, Sniffles, named as he too, suffers from allergies like I do. Obviously, now he is my favorite.

That face says "bring on the TLC" like no other face I have seen in a long while. I hope you're feeling better!

I don't think that's possible but hope that you and your kitty are feeling a lot better by now.

Stay warm...G

Yes, I knew that, but I could not resist the picture and wanted to have some fun with it.

Thanx.

I thought it was possible, but I am not a doctor or a vet.
