Sleeping KittenReasons Cats Snore

It may not be as annoying as a human snoring right next to you, but if you get a cat comfortable enough sometimes their tiny little snores can sound like they are coming from a 400 pound lion and not a 10 pound kitty.

Typically, if your cat is snoring around you it just means they are extremely comfortable around you and are capable of going into deep sleep without being fearful; consider it a compliment.

If you think that the snoring is more than some quality rest and relaxation there are a few other things it could be.

* Allergies
* Overweight
* Asthma
* Postnasal drip
* Hairballs
* Polyps in their breathing passageways that block the air when they are relaxed.

Typically, the snoring is just a sign of extreme relaxation. If you see other wierd respitory issues such as coughing, gagging, wheezing or kitty obesity you should definitely consider taking your cat to see your family vet for a checkup. It is always better safe than sorry!
