My poor kitty has been having a terrible problem with her allergies lately.
When I first got Pretty Girl, I took her to the veterinarian to make sure she was healthy and to get her all the shots she needed.
At that time, the vet told me that her breed of cats was prone to allergies. She is now six months old and she is always sneezing. The other night she curled up on my pillow. Instead of hearing her soothing purrs, I heard her rattling wheeze. As soon as I got up in the morning, I called her veterinarian. The office receptionist set up an appointment that same afternoon. When I took Pretty Girl in, the vet told me he had warned me about her being plagued with allergies. I couldn’t believe the wheezing was from allergies. I told him she was always hanging out around the air vents. She enjoys the cool air coming from the air vents, when the air conditioning is running. He asked how long it had been since I had my ductwork cleaned. Since there was ductwork to carry the AC from the unit to the house, it was possible there was a lot of dust inside the ductwork. The dust could be the source of Pretty Girl’s allergies. As soon as I got home, I called the HVAC company and asked to have someone inspect my air conditioning unit and the ductwork. I told them I was afraid there was a lot of dust in the ductwork that was causing Pretty Girl to be sick.
