Do cats snore??

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi, Sometimes when our old lady Missy is sleeping in the chair next to our bed she makes a weird noise. It almost sounds like she is snoring, but I don't know if cats snore like people do or if it means she is having some kind of breathing problem? She has been coughing some lately also. I was thinking of a vet trip with her just because of her age for a look over to see how she is doing. To me she is doing real good yet for a cat her age, but she is like Tuffy was, she has to be really hurting before she will let it show.

If she makes it a couple more years she will be old enough to go to a bar and have a beer.

Oh yeah they definitely snore!!!! Our Stumpy is a big snorer. You can hear her snoring from the next room! It's very cute

She's also a heavy breather, and pants after exercise, and will start the heavy breathing/snoring thing while she's just dozing off, and wake herself from it

Yep, some cats snore. One of our favorite memories when we were showing our Big D as a kitten, was one night in a hotel down in Oregon, Dee Dee was sleeping between us on the bed, lying on his back, all four legs relaxed to the side, snoring away. It was the cutest

Just tonight, Dee's mom, my beloved Ophelia was snoring away, sleeping curled up on my arm and lap.

Cats definitely snore--my boyfriend's cat has kept him awake on more than one occasion. If it's a new issue, though, it's worth having a vet take a look. Congested kitties, like congested people, are more likely to snore.

My cat has asthma and allergies, and an attack is always preceded by 'snoring' in bed. I do not think it is normal and cats that do snore probably have compromised breathing passages. I'd ask a vet about yours.

I have known a number of cats who snored. Wellington, who is asthmatic, doesn't 'snore' as such but sometimes wheezes in his sleep - it is a different sound from a real snore.

I agree, if it's a new thing then it could be a sign of some congestion.
My Pushy snores sometimes, but then he always has. He doesn't have any other breathing problems, just the occasional snore, and it's so adorable!
