Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a few questions for you to better assess your situation.
Is the cat with the tongue hanging out panting? Is he sneezing or sounding congested?
How much blood in in the other cat's nasal discharge?
Thanks for the information. I assume the cat with the tongue out is not sneezing? I am very suspicious of a viral infection between the cats. If the tongue is just sticking out, I would be concerned about oral pain. Some upper respiratory viruses can cause sores in the mouth that leads to pain. Most likely that is the source of the blood. It is entirely possible that the cats are dealing with two separate issues, but it seems like too much of a coincidence. Usually when cats are showing signs of illness, it is more advanced than you would think. They are experts at hiding illnesses. I would try and get them to your vet to evaluate before their conditions worsen. Not much you can do at home for this. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
