The state of the immune system can both improve and get worse during pregnancy, and this varies with the individual.

my young cat is drooling alot and sneezes and wont eat. i have other cats and they are ok. Cats like humans get colds and flus - Cat colds are very contagious and interestingly, cats are more susceptible to colds in the summer time. You may need to call the VET as the colds can be fatal if infection sets in and are extremely contagious to other cats

In ancient times, most people caught colds in winter when it was cold, hence the name. They thought colds were caused by the cold weather. Numerous scientific studies have proven that being cold does not cause people to catch colds or make them more susceptible. The reason people caught more colds in winter was simply because they collected together for warmth and their close proximity increased the spread of the cold from one person to the next.
