one of "my boys" shakes his head a lot and when he does slobber/snot flies around he is well in himself doing all his normal catty things.i couldn't tell you if he has always done this but ive noticed it recently<last few weeks> when he has sat on my lap and ive been splattered
he is not fond of the vets and I just wondered if anyone has any advice-should I be worried?
I'd get him to the vet directly. It sounds to me as if he's got a dose of cat flu - which is a nasty beast and not at all just like a bad cold. He should have been vaccinated against the main threats long ago in any case. (And while you're there, get him microchipped, particularly as he goes outside.)
