View Full Version : Cat sneezing blood

This afternoon, my cat was sleeping and started sneezing and blood came out. :eek:

He hasn't sneezed much since but I can still see some traces of blood in his left nostril and he seems to have some kind of discharge from his left eye also. I have an appointment with the vet on saturday but right now I'm freaking out, why would he do that?! :(

He sounds like he has a massive sinus infection. Poor little guy...hope he's going to be ok.

Probably the beginning stages of morphing into a more advanced (and surely evil) lifeform.

Do cats get nose bleeds?

I would fear something like cancer. How old is the cat?

He's about 3 and a half.

The domestic housecat is the final stage for all animal evil. I thought everyone knew that?

Yeah that's what I was thinking too. A tumor maybe. Poor baby. Let us know what the Vet says!

Hmmm, Ottawa Canada. Do you have forced air heating? If so, and you don't have a humidifier, it could be dry air drying out the kitty's sinuses. Just a thought. Let us know what the vet says.

Call the vet and check.

Call the vet. They can advise you whether to bring the kitty in earlier than tomorrow.

I agree with Kitty -- it's probably just irritated sinuses. Give the baby a scratch between the ears from Auntie Vibiana, the Mommy Of Us All (cats, anyway. :lol: )

When I first caught my cat from the outside he had the symptoms you are describing, I took him to the vet and he did have a sinus infection. They gave me some horse chokers to give to him so I had to break pill down and mix them with water and give it to him via a syringe.... He did not like this at all but it was funny watching him trying to drink this nasty stuff! He also gave me some goo for his eye, after about a week he was back to normal; I believe your cat will be fine as well.

Your cat is a coke fiend. Stage an intervention.

:( my sisters cat was doing the same thing and it was a tumor. She had to put him down. He was a lot older though.. has your kitty been losing weight??

Hopefully that won't be the case for you..

It'll be OK, just cover yourself in garlic and run for the hills.

Causes could vary. Could be a tumor. Could be a foxtail. Could be a sinus infection.

Either way, it's vet time.

Do you guys have any foxtails in your area? Once those things get into an ear or nose it's a nightmare for the poor victim. A vet can get them out, but it might involve anaesthesia.

Just when you thought that plants were incabable of pure evil, along comes foxtails.

Might? Foxtail exploration WILL require anesthetic. The nose is very sensitive.

My mom rescued a kitten that she found half dead laying in an alley. After she got him indoors, he was sneezing blood too. IIRC, the vet said it was the feline equivalent to the flu. A little medicine later, he's nearly a year old and quite healthy!

Definitely get your kitty to the vet tonight or tomorrow and see what he/she says.

Update?!?

Update: according to the Vet, my cat has a slight upper respiratory infection. The bleeding was probably because he has really small nostrils (smaller than most cats) and the sneezing probably irritated his nose. We're gonna wait 2 more weeks before putting him on antibiotics to see if it goes away on it's own. Either way, it's nothing serious so I'm really happy :)

My cat has such bad allergies and from time to time has a little blood in what she sneezes up because its massive. My wife and I are at our wits end on what to do to help her, because we feel so bad for her.
