But, I think that the chilly has something to do with it. I had some of the windows open to let the fresh air in - ie. the wind.

I'll bet that she sat in front of the screen (as she loves to do) and got some allergic reaction to something.

I have not heard her sneeze since last night, so I guess she is OK.

Hi Lynn,

I thought of the heating system because the house I used to live in had gas forced-air heating (no A/C), and when the temperature dropped and the heat came on each season, a certain amount of duct dust got blown out. The cats would sneeze. So would I.

But I think your assumption that she likely had a minor allergic reaction to something from the outside air is most reasonable, especially since she hasn't sneezed again.

Millicent is a frequent sneezer, due to chronic sinus issues. DH refers to her as "the bio-terrorist" when she goes into her sneezing fits. ;-)

Glad your furgirl seems okay today!
