I recently treated my carpets with borax to eliminate fleas. Now 4 out of 7 of my cats are sneezing and seem to have a cold? I put it down and vacuumed it up within 24 hrs? I don't know if I should take them to vet. They are all still eating and the fluids they sneeze are clear.

I have seen several websites that say borax is toxic to cats, and can also be toxic to humans. Cats lick their paws and ingest the borax. I would not use it around children or pets, and would use with caution around adults.
It sounds like they may have ingested some of the Borax into their lungs as well as their digestive system, so I would run, not walk, to the nearest vet.
