    Hi,

    I have had my cat for a couple of weeks now, we picked her up from a rescue centre she is a two year old Siamese. Last night she was making some funny noises in her sleep, like a popping or clicking sound at the end of her breath when she exhaled (it sounded to me like the noise was coming from her mouth / throat not her chest). She was lying in a funny position at the time splayed over my arm is it possible that it was this position that caused it or could it just possibly be her snoring?

    She had been to the vets yesterday for a check up and the vet listened to her chest etc (I didn't mention the clicking because last night is the first time i've noticed it), the only thing she noticed was a bit of gingivitis and prescribed some antibiotics.

    When I got up this morning her breathing sounded normal and she ate her breakfast (with antibiotic mixed in). Does anybody else's cat ever make this sound? Am I just worrying about nothing?

    My other concern is that it could be a reaction to the antibiotic, I'm going to try and get somebody to nip round to check on her whilst I'm at work.

    Thank you in advance

    Alex

    It's possible that the antibiotic made her sleep a bit more deeply than usual and resulted in her making unusual noises. Also the strange position she was lying in may have contributed too. If she seemed normal this morning, and was eating ok too, then I wouldn't worry too much. No harm though in asking someone just to check up on her for your own peace of mind.

    If it's any help, my Oscar snores like a drain and breathes very heavily when he's in a deep sleep. I can't have him in the same room as me coz it's so bad. I often wonder why Merson isin't sleep deprived because the racket is so bad sometimes!!!! :eek:

    Hi, thanks for the response, hopefully I'm worrying for no reason. Like I said we haven't had her long so not really sure what's normal for her. I'll try and get a couple of pictures up this weekend.
