My cat snores and wheezes
The List of Seven (The List of Seven, #1) by Mark FrostOn Christmas Day 1884, a desperate plea from a mysterious woman leads Arthur Conan Doyle—struggling physician, aspiring writer, and part-time demystifier of the occult—to a seance in London’s East End and into a fiendish and deadly trap. Stunned by a shocking display of black magic, Doyle witnesses a murder, nearly falling victim himself before being rescued by a secretive stranger: Jack Sparks, a man who claims to be special agent to Queen Victoria. He tells Doyle that he has been targeted by a diabolical coven of Satanists—the Dark Brotherhood.
As they track their attackers across the length and breadth of Britain, assailed by forces of darkness both human and supernatural, Conan Doyle and Sparks unmask a terrifying conspiracy that threatens not only the Crown but the very fabric of modern civilization. Their only clue: a list of seven names, the leaders of the Brotherhood.
Skeptical by nature and profession, Doyle labors to prove that the events he has witnessed—horrifying visions, zombies, ghouls, molecular alteration—are elaborate ruses with logical explanations. But if so, why? Simply because Doyle’s anti-occultist writings, never even published, have inadvertently exposed the Brotherhood’s intentions? Who is the elusive, seemingly superhuman mastermind behind the Seven? Most important, as Doyle continues to put his life in the hands of Jack Sparks, the question persists: Can Sparks be trusted?
Is Cat Snoring Normal?
But what about cats? Have you ever wondered whether those cute little furballs in your home could snore up a storm? What would cat snores even sound like? Would cats snore loudly, like some humans do? Or quietly? Would you even notice a kitty snore?
Although noisy breathing itself is not life-threatening, the underlying condition might be. If airway obstruction is to blame, total blockage of the airway can happen quickly and without notice, resulting in complete respiratory failure. The blockage, narrowing, or other issues that result in noisy breathing can occur almost anywhere in the respiratory system, including the nose, mouth, throat, larynx, bronchi, or smaller airways within the lungs. Cats that are experiencing noisy breathing should be seen by a veterinarian to diagnose or rule out potentially serious medical conditions. The term noisy breathing is used to describe any condition in which breathing is abnormally loud. This includes breathing than can clearly be heard without the use of veterinary equipment.
Who can resist YouTube videos of kittens snoring? Snoring in cats , while not as common as in dogs , is usually caused by some kind of partial obstruction in the upper airway. The low-pitched sound, called stertor, usually results from soft tissue or fluid interfering with the smooth passage of air through the nose or throat. As in people, it may be just positional and relatively harmless, but in some cases, snoring may indicate a medical problem. Like their smooshy-nosed canine counterparts , flat-faced cat breeds such as Persians and Himalayans are often predisposed to brachycephalic airway syndrome. That means their nostrils may be narrower than usual, or their soft palates extend a little too far, to name just a few of the potential problems.

Adults and seniors can nap for anywhere between 12 and 16 hours each day. Cats can do a whole lot of things while sleeping. They can dream and have pleasant or nightmarish visions, they can nap and still be on alert, and they can also fall into extremely deep slumbers in the most uncomfortable positions known to mankind. And some felines can even snore in their sleep. Snoring is normal and quite common for some cat breeds. Persians and other flat-faced breeds with short nasal passages do it more often than you think. Light snoring sounds are normal even for non-flat-faced breeds.
