Cats are one of the most popular and adorable pets that everyone wants to bring home and adopt. Each owner has a different particular reason to love cats: their lovely toe beans, their Puss in Boots pair of eyes, their purrs and meows just like they want to communicate with us (In fact, meowing is exclusively for hoomans, so do not ignore their commands), and there is also a club who lives for the nose. One boop a day keeps the doctor away!
A cat’s nose is an important organ among others on their fluffy body. Cats have a fourteenfold sense of smell compared to humans’, and they help determine if the food is purrfect or yucky, and find a way back home when they get lost in the middle of nowhere. Kitties tend to despise strong smells which can make the sniffers more sensitive and may cause an allergy.
According to Dr. John Howe, President of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the nose of the cat can reveal a lot about their health.
“Sores or blisters on the nose could be the result of a viral infection, trauma, or an autoimmune disease such as Pemphigus complex.”
“Also, be on the lookout for discolored discharge, nosebleeds, or dry, cracking, ulcerated sores on your cat or kitten’s nose. These should all be checked by your veterinarian.”
