snoring?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if its normal for a cat to snore? I have heard dogs snore, but never cats. Callie was asleep on my monitor again as usual and she is snoring like crazy.

I don't know if it's normal, but Cally has snored before for a few days and then stopped...and she's completely fine.

^ Being a little (or more) overweight seems to contribute to snoring, just like it can in people. Allergies, colds, or anything that can make a cat have a slightly stuffy nose will too.

My 5 year old Sho stopped snoring as much after losing some weight.

Mattie snores sometimes, but she has some Persian in her so her face is a little smushed. She weighs 9 lbs.

It's interesting that your cats do better after losing weight - if you know anything about sleep apnea, the same thing happens to people, and the snoring is just a symptom of a serious problem (the apnea) which can lead to cardiac problems and strokes. Do your cats a favor and help them slim down!

Several of my kitties snore, but none of them are overweight. They don't snore really loudly but it's enough to hear and they only do it once in awhile.

Cindy snores, and she's definitely not overweight. Swanie, who is overweight, doesn't snore.

It is not necessary to be overweight to have apnea, though not all snorers have it either.

Is it snoring or purring I've never heard Mia snore and she's a lil round. lol. My boyfriend snores because he has nasal problems and Mia sounds nothing like him. It just sounds like she is purring in her sleep and is that normal?
