I read somewhere that it might not be normal for cats to snore. I can hear my cat snoring sometimes, and it can be a little loud. I just heard him breathing and exhaling loudly. It was kind of a throaty exhale, and it’s normal for him. He does it often, but it was still a concern for me after reading about potential problems. I decided to ask his vet about the issue, but she wasn’t concerned in the least.
It Might Not Be Normal for Cats to Snore if –
While I had my cat at the vet’s office for his yearly exam, I mentioned that he snored now and then. After reading that it might not be normal for cats to snore, I was seriously concerned about his lungs and his health. I felt like a fool after the vet and her assistant laughed at my question.
I don’t recall exactly what they said, but apparently she wasn’t the least bit concerned. I don’t think that it was right for her to laugh at my question though. In some cases it might not be normal for cats to snore. Even someone without a veterinary license knows that snoring can be a sign of more serious health issues, but she certainly wasn’t worried about it.

Other than the snoring and a few extra pounds, my cat received a clean but expensive bill of health. Maybe that’s why the veterinarian wasn’t interested in hearing any more about his snoring issues. His lungs and heart must have sounded fine, but I didn’t know and had to ask. To me it was a serious matter, and I didn’t find it funny in the least. I wouldn’t have asked or wasted a moment of her time if I wasn’t concerned. In humans, snoring can be a sign of more serious health problems. All questions should be taken seriously, even if the concerns aren’t anything to worry about.
Maybe it’s Time to Find a New –
I’m not a veterinarian, and I’m not going to try to provide information on why it might not be normal for cats to snore. I just recall reading a short post on the topic, and it was a reliable source. It said to ask your veterinarian. Since my cat’s vet turned my question into a joke, maybe it’s time to find a new place to take my two cats and my dog. After all, I take their health very seriously, and I don’t want to be made to feel like a fool when I have a genuine question or concern.
