This cat sneezing fit video will make you smile guaranteed

I am sure that this cat is healthy. Something irritated their nose and this happened. Poor thing but it is not serious. Just a bit amusing.


What causes cat sneezing?


Cat sneezing can occur for various reasons. While the occasional sneeze is normal, frequent or persistent sneezing might indicate an underlying issue. Here are some common causes of cat sneezing:
  1. Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URIs): These are often caused by viruses like feline herpesvirus and feline calicivirus. These infections are contagious among cats but cannot be caught by humans. Stress can worsen the symptoms or increase transmission between cats. Treatment focuses on managing symptoms while the cat’s immune system fights the infection. Secondary bacterial infections may also occur and can be treated with antibiotics.

  2. Irritants: Cats may sneeze due to inhaling irritants such as tobacco smoke, dusty cat litter, perfume, cleaning sprays, mold, pollen, or even candles. Pay attention to when your cat sneezes to identify potential triggers.

  3. Tooth Root Infections: These infections can drain into the cat’s sinuses and cause sneezing.

  4. Foreign Bodies: Inhaled foreign objects like blades of grass can irritate the nasal passages and lead to sneezing.

  5. Polyps and Tumors: Polyps or tumours in the nasal passages may cause persistent sneezing.

  6. Allergies: Although not common, cats can sneeze if they inhale something irritating.

Remember, if your cat’s sneezing persists or is accompanied by other symptoms like runny nose, eye discharge, coughing, or fatigue, consult your veterinarian for proper diagnosis and treatment. 🐾
