Hi everyone! A very anxious new kitten mum here who is a classic over-thinker haha. I adopted two former street kitties three weeks ago, a pair of sisters (they suspect anyway), they're 10 month old at the best guess and were sterilised just before I got them. They were rescued at 7 months and lived in a foster home for a while with their other siblings. They went to the vets Monday and given a clean bill of health and their first shot - they'll go back in 15 days for the next round. But as with most pets, they've decided to throw a few confusing things at me in the days since seeing the vet! Last couple of days both kittens have woken up in the middle of their afternoon nap and kind of...coughed/gagged? Quite a dry 'something's coming up' noise, or like maybe they're going to do a hairball. Maybe a bit like a cough in a human. They stir just beforehand like they know it's about to happen. It lasts around 5 seconds, 8-10 at most, then they stop, lick their nose a bit, and then go back to sleep. That happened yesterday once, and it's happened again today around same time and mid-nap again. In the same order - one does it, and then an hour later the other does the same! They're sleeping next to me right now and I can't hear a thing from their chests or anything. They're eating normally, not thrown up and their litter box activity is normal (one had a little upset tummy since her vaccines but seems to be getting much better). All their energy and play levels are normal. Except for maybe an hour long shopping trip both days, I am with them from when they wake up to when they go to bed and have only heard it once each from them. Is it maybe just a minor cold and it only really does that little thing because they're asleep/relaxed? Not sure it can be a hairball if nothing comes up? Their big afternoon nap usually happens after their big grooming session. They're short hairs but seem to be malting a lot - haven't got them used to a brush yet but working on it. I don't know if it happens at night, they sleep in the room next to mine and I'm not sure I'd hear it unless I was awake as it's so short and quite quiet. So as far as I know it's just twice in two days, but for both of them. I'm really confused as to what it could be! Thanks in advance everyone!
