It's possible that it could be allergies. My cat had a problem with that a couple of summers ago. We went to the vet and were able to give her bendryl for a few days and that helped. It could be an upper respiratory infection as well. Especially if your cat is having any discharge when it sneezes. Also, cats do get colds just like people do. This has happened in our house as well, especially with multiple cats and foster cats. It spread to some of the cats but not all of them. It was not severe enough to warrant any medication. It would be a good idea to check with your vet again. They should be able to tell just by listening to the lungs.

What did the Vet. say that your cat had? If it is an upper respitory infection, the antibiotic may not have been effective. That happed once with my cat. I've also had a cat with allergies. If it was an upper respitory infection, that is very serious. You probably should take your cat back to the Vet. for a check up. Good luck!

Well, what did the vet say was wrong? That happened to my cat once & it turned out that she was sick from the dust in my apartment. Once I gave my apartment a really good cleaning, she was fine. Try cleaning the house.
