Cat snoring possibly wheezing?

I've noticed today while my cat is asleep she is making a wheezy snoring noise, if I nudge her it stops so I think it's the position she is in rather than general breathing trouble. She has been sneezing a bit but not an abnormal amount.

I've never had a cat who snores before! So just wondering if it's normal or if she could maybe have an allergy to something in our house as she is new here, or just a little cold.

BertCat does a wheezy snore in certain sleeping positions, vet said it was nothing.

2 of my cats snore sometimes - both are a bit overweight, which I assume is the issue.

My tiny kitten snores and it is a bit wheezy. On the other hand my big old fat cat who you would think might snore doesn't.

Is she new to the house or new to the family?

Both cozie she's a rescue and we've had her about 3 weeks. She had a vet checkup before we took her home and all was well.

I'm glad to hear it's normal for them to snore. She isn't overweight and is very active and eats and drinks, so doesn't seem unwell, but I just wanted to check before I phoned up the vet like "my cat is snoring please help" and they say "yeah so what?" grin

I think I will still keep an eye as she sneezes but not a huge amount.

Thanks for the replies.

I'd maybe just keep an eye on her. The sneezing etc might mean a slight allergy but could also mean some residual cat flu - perhaps brought to a head by the stress (sorry) of a new house and people. If it's the latter, it might well go when she settles properly and her immune system comes up to scratch. (My own Seniorboy has some nose problems but they didn't manifest really until he was about 17 and his immune system started to go off the boil.)
