Wet noses?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
This may be a dumb question, but are cats noses usually wet, or dry? I have always had dogs growing up and their noses are always wet....

Just a question that I was curious about.....remember, I'm still a newbie!!

Cold, and slightly wet, if its hot and dry, that indicates a fever.

I have heard it varies cat to cat ... as long as it is not runny your okay..

It's a valid question. I sometime wonder about their noses myself.
Sadie's is always damp & Dexter's is dry.

Harley's is always dry, never wet, is that a problem?

OK! I still don't know the answer since we've had several different responses. Good question. I'd like to know the correct answer myself.

I've wondered that too. Noodles nose always feels wet and Mooch's feels dry. For a while I couldn't figure out if she had a runny nose or if it was just damp.

Hmmmm.....I have noticed Harley's was wet once, but that was probly cuz he got into the fish bowl...

Otherwise I'm clueless, I hope that a dry nose is okay!!

I do know that it should be cool to the touch. My vet said a hot nose is a sick one.

Well I just annoyed my cats by feeling their noses. Both dry, but warm, not cool to the touch. Wiggies usually has a wet nose I suspect he has allergies.

Boomers nose is never cold (but not hot either) or wet (unless he happens to just have finished drinking from the bathtub taps ) our vet said its fine as long as their noses are not dry to the extent that they have any cracks in their nose.
