my cat Buffy is acting strange

Hello. My 7 year old cat Buffy is acting rather strange. She is making vocables at me, runs up to me, and then runs away, which she has never done before. Her eyes are watering a lot lately, her wheezing is noticeable from across the room and she has been acting scared. Recently her kitty litter sand was changed and I noticed her fur smelled of the scent of the sand. My mom had changed it last week and I usually try to get low dust, non-scented sand. It's really dusty and is bugging the heck out of my bronchitis, let alone poor Buffy's wheezing. Also, her food has been changed. When I went away for 3 months for school, my parents had randomly put Buffy and my other cat Salem on Whiskas (AHH), and when I came home, both cats were really fat (spherical). I immediately got them weaned off of it and put onto the blue buffalo wilderness diet brand cat food, mixed with the purina food they were used to before. I hate that they have been switched around so many times, but I did not want them eating Whiskas (it's basically McDonalds for cats). I do not see Buffy drink water often, but I see her nibbling on kibbles whenever I walk by her food dish. I am now trying to put some water on their food to help Buffy get more water in her system. I also never see her in the kitty box since she tries to use it when no one is around. I am worried about her and want to bring her into the vet, but until then I wanted to see if some ideas come up online to suggest/ask about. Thanks. Mandy I, ON Canada

hi I am not a Vet....but wanted to make a suggestion that you do get kitty to see one real soon. I'm thinking perhaps the wheezing is due to a hairball lodged in his throat? this would also cause him to look apprehensive and keep trying to get your attention for 'help'...if this is whats wrong he could choke if its not soon dislodged.
possible its also lodged further down and he's not able to have a bowel movement....?
Just my opinion but he is trying hard to tell you something is WRONG...good luck -)
