My cat sneezed on me the other day (right in my face) and now I'm sick. Do you think you can catch a cold or get sick from your pets? It sounds weird, but I haven't been sick with a cold in years and now all of a sudden I have a cold after my cat sneezed on me. The cat kind of has a little cold/sniffles, etc. So I'm just wondering if this has ever happened to anyone?
