Wyatt appears to have a mild form of kennel cough (he was boarded about a week before the hacking started). My husband and I came down with mild colds at the same time that Wyatt started hacking. My symptoms are a sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, stuffiness. My husband just had stuffiness and a runny nose. Is there a chance that we got sick from Wyatt or vice versa? Also, can our cat get sick from this as well? I found a couple Web pages that seem to suggest that sharing colds is possible. Anyone else have a similar experience?
