  • It can be any of those things, and even swellling. When I was a kid I would have asthma attacks around cats, but I my eyes would swell up so that I could barely see out of them, and my lips would swell....even my tongue....yes, from being around cats. I was rushed to emergency more than once because of a cat.

  • possible rash, runny nose, itchy eyes.... just like any other allergies

  • If my 9yo is only vaguely near a cat his eyes get all bloodshot and watering/itchy, his nose gets runny and he starts to cough. If he actually touches a cat or spends a lot of time near one (which is like 15 minutes) then he breaks out in hives all over his face, his eyes swell shut and his lips swell up and turn purple. He is HIGHLY allergic to cats and has to stay away from them and if he plays with kids that have cats he always has to take a benadryl even if he never gets near the cat. Poor kid. He's also allergic to dogs but so far they haven't caused as severe a reaction. Of course every single one of his friends (and just about everyone in this neighborhood) has a dog and/or cat.

  • It can even be behavioral issues you never had before if you have just introduced a new pet.
