People stay inside, hiding from the Covid monster.
It’s winter, so in much of the United States, windows are closed.
Poor ventilation + family pets = sneezing and wheezing
Don’t blame the pets. Humans are supposed to be the smart ones. We can figure out a solution.
Open the windows! People used to sleep with the windows open, even in cold weather, to get the benefit of air circulation. Now we are afraid of the cold, but is sneezing and wheezing better than using an extra blanket.

If your middle-aged or senior cat doesn’t like to be groomed, they may have a good reason. Arthritis makes some movements more painful. If you notice a reduction in movement, it’s your turn to pick up the slack. Gently and patiently help your cat groom themselves. If you can’t do this, then look for a cat groomer who understands the aches and pains of old age in cats.
