Boy cat, as of last night is sneezing a lot. In fact i don’t recall him sneezing before.

Do cats get colds? Or is it likely to turn into cat flu?

Obviously vets tomorrow if no better but I thought I would ask those in the know.

Hmm - watching with interest as my Boy Cat has started sneezing recently. Seems fine in himself, eating, purring, fussing etc. No runny nose or eyes.

Current hypothesis is he might be a bit allergic to the (newish) dog? Or a bit dustier as we've had woodburner on more lately?

Anyway, tips on when to worry would be good!

Sparklingcat had a couple of days of sneezing but was apparently fine in all other respects. Just as I was pondering a vets trip it stopped.

If combined with a change in other habits like eating or sleeping I would have been concerned more.

He’s fine in himself, eating, sleeping and demanding attention.
No runny eyes or nose.

Maybe it’s nothing then?

Mine got really sneezy the other day. She had some dried food crud lodged in one of her nostrils. Once I dislodged it the sneezing stopped. She didn’t enjoy me getting it out but it solved the constant sneezing that had been going on for hours.

He caught another wood pigeon on Thursday, I wonder if he has some feather up his nose?

I’m going to check in a minute, with a torch. Wish me luck. I bet I get hurt hmm

Good luck! Cats never seem to listen to “it’s for your own good” grin

My girly definitely sneezes when she's stressed (returning from cattery or vet, kitten being particularly bouncy!) - could it be that ivo all the fireworks?

I’ve looked up his nose, despite his wanting to kill me, nothing there.

I’ll see how he goes over night.
