    Are these outdoor cats? Then they come into all kinds of things that get on their fur - molds, pollens, poison ivy. It's not likely the cats, but rather something they have come into contact with.

    Perhaps you were just bitten by a mosquito or something,

    Unless your cats happened to get into something, or you put something like flea powder on your cats you are probably allergic to them. Cats groom themselves and the saliva may irritate your skin.
