What might be causing these cat allergies?
Sometimes, when immune system becomes weaker...
I understand your concerns.
Yes, it is possible to develop an allergy to a cat that you had for 8 years. By passing of years, your immune system might get weaker, thus, you've become more susceptible to common allergens.
Can you please refer your actual health problems? Has your cat develop any disease related to her skin or nails?
Sometimes, skin problems of cat can make you become allergic!
Try to keep your 8 year old away from you for a few days as following...
Hi back my dear,
If you get water eyes, sneezing when close to 8 years old cat, that is suggestive that you are allergic to its hair or skin although it is clean after yearly check ups.
I advise to stay away from your 8 year old for a few days, if no allergy symptoms, then, it is from that cat. If still present, further allergy testing advised for proper evaluations.
Hope it helped!
