Cat making "wheezing" noises

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, it's not exactly wheezing. Our 12 year old diabetic guy has been having this sort of "snuffly" sound in his nose and/ or throat. He's going to the vet later in the week but has anyone experienced this? It's not quite a cough and not a sneeze but he will make a sound that is raspy-er than a hairball. And then when you listen to him breathe it sounds like he has a bunch of mucus or something in his nose/ throat. To equate it to a human thing, when he's eating, it sounds like a person would if they had a completely stuffed up nose and had to breathe thru their mouths. So, it's a few different sounds. I think I've detected it before but it comes and goes. Last night it was something you couldnt' miss. He's an indoor cat. Thanks!

From the sounds of it as well as his age, I would take him in sooner than later-

Good luck!

Yes, sooner than later. Better to catch whatever it is at the beginning than to let it fester. It sounds like a cold or URI---- but get em' to the vet asap so it won't be soo severe. Good Luck

Welcome to TCS btw
