Cat wheezing

My two year old cat wheezes and snores when he sleeps or is very relaxed is this normal? Also what is the average weight for a two year old tabbi?

This really doesn't sound normal...especially if it sounds like your kitten is straining to breath in any way.

I found this discussion as I've just taken my 3 year old cat to the vet for wheezing and snoring - but only when relaxed, he's been doing it a while now. Vet said she couldn't find anything wrong - no temperature or blockage or anything and suggested the epiglottis/throat may be slightly irritated by something in his environment (eg smoking) making it swell and the hole slightly smaller. She gave him an anti-inflammatory injection and antibiotic, just in case.

Mine actually snore and if the house is dry their little noses sometimes whistle...

I have two heavy breathers/ snorers... they are both a bit overweight and one had a severe URI when younger and suffered some long term effects. He even breaths with his mouth slightly open when sleeping or relaxed. And they both are strong healthy cats.
