    My cat, Lyra, has a nasty cold.  She's sneezing and coughing and having a hard time eating. ...

    Should I take her to the vets or is a cold something they get over on their own like humans?

    Definitely take her to a vet. It could just be a cold, or it could be a respiratory tract infection, parasite, or virus that can cause serious issues. If she's up on her vaccinations, the chances of anything life-threatening do go down, but there are still some pretty serious things that it could be.

    wychic is right...if shots are up to date, may not be a bad problem...sounds almost like Distemper, which is serious.
