Hello, I have a 7-year-old short hared cat. I have just discovered he has a nosebleed, is it bad or is it natural for a cat to have a nosebleed. Is there anything I can do, Iím worried I hope its nothing bad.

It is not at all normal for a cat (or any animal) to have a nosebleed, if it is a real nosebleed and there is no apparent injury. You need to get your cat to the vet right away.

Badger is right.

This is from an animal health site:

A bloody nose in a cat or dog may be associated with foreign bodies (foxtail awns are common), polyps, infections, poisoning, bleeding disorders, or even cancer. It is a sign whose significance should not be underestimated
