Does anyone own a cat that sneezes? My 6 year old cat is constantly sneezing although there's no drainage coming out of her nose. There's also no drainage from her eyes. She also has loud sniffs. I'm aware that sneezing is unusual for a cat. Any insights would be greatly appreciated!

My cat has allergies. She sneezes some and sniffs. So it sounds like that could be the culprit.

I'm really hoping that this is the culprit!

You really need to take it to the veterinarian to have it checked out. It could be an allergy or it could have a sinus infection or a common cold. Any of these can kill a cat for it blocks up their breathing passages. Please consider taking it to the vet.

Thanks so much for your information! I've spoken to my vet about this issue and he didn't think it was a big deal. Guess it's time for a new vet!

Yes it sounds like a new vet is in order. When one can't give an answer then it's time to find a new one. I've got to find one too for the one here is way too expensive and I don't feel the client/doctor careing like I did before. I've got to feel comfortable with the doctor and know that he/she loves animals or forget it, I'll move on to someone who does.

As some others have posted here it could be an allergy of some kind, but I'd take your kitty to a vet anyway as it could also be a sign of some kind of respiratory problem...usually anitbiotics like vet strength Amoxillan will help that

Yes, both of my cats are overdue for a vet visit. I think it is a respiratory problem. She sneezes and snorts everyday and tires out so easily. She's also very small - the runt of the litter - but so is my other cat and he's a big boy. Overall she's pretty fragile but you'd never know by her larger than life personality!

In my house there were lot of mouses, so we had a cat to overcome the mouses trouble. yes, the cat is very useful for us to destroy the mouse, then after no mouse is found in our house. But it is very sad to say, the cat was destroyed by a dog.

I'm so sorry that you lost your cat. I hope you're doing okay with losing this family member. I allow my cats to go out in the yard when I'm outside and I'm always getting "presents" - mice, birds, snakes, big grasshoppers - if it moves it's a gift to the pride!

Hi. Well when I first found my cat Lily she sneezed a lot, and again, he had no drainage from her nose or eyes. However, she did have her "third eyelid" over her eyes, which is normally a sign that a cat is not well. Poor little thig was very tiny and had been dumped near to my home. Anyway I took her straight to the Vet, and they found she had a high temperature, which is her case was caused by a virus she had caught from being out in the cold wen she was too small and young. Anyway - they have her some antibiotics and told me to keep her in, keep her warm, and give her lots of milk and water, and she was soon as right as rain:-)) So I suggest you take you cat to the Vet and get her checked out. She may need some medicines to make her better again.

You know the funny thing is that she doesn't act like she's sick. But she does get cold very easily. Either way a vet visit is in order (and you know how much cats love visiting the vet! (:
