My cat has recently been sneezing. She doesn't do it all the time, but she is doing it more often then I ever noticed her doing it before. She also has a runny nose now. Should I be concerned?

Hi cats just like us humans can pick up colds which are nothing to worry about and will recover from in a few days or so.
if your cat has not been vaccinated against cat flu http://www.our-happy-cat.com/cat-flu.html then it is possible that the symptoms could develop into this in which case if the symptoms do become bad then a trip to the vets is definitely in order.
there is another reason for sneezing etc and this is an allergy. As with allergies they can be caused by all sorts of different things and may just produce a slight occasional sniffle. But again if the symptoms get to the point where the cat is in distress then a vet needs to be seen
best wishes Kate
