Is a cat nose supposed to be dry or wet?


Answer by  bubbyboy (9929)

For a healthy cat to have a wet nose is somewhat of a myth. While most cats will have a moist nose, there have been pretty sick cats who maintain the wet nose. Some healthy cats just happen to have a dry nose.

Unlike wet-nosed dogs, a cat's nose should be dry and clean. If hers is wet and/or runny she may have a cold or allergies. Try to trick her into drinking some extra liquids. The juice from a can of tuna will help her feel thirsty! When she is well hydrated, her nose should be barely moist.

A cat's nose should not be too dry or wet. When touched it should feel similar to human lips (when they are well hydrated). When a cat's nose is wet and drippy nose or dry and flaky, it can be a sign of illness.

A cat's nose should be wet. If it's dry it could mean that the cat is sick, or it could mean the cat is very very thirsty. Put some fesh cool water down and watch the cat. If it doesn't improve in a day or so check with your vet.

a cats nose is supposed to be dry. If it is wet then that generally means that the cat might have a cold or might want to see a vet.

A healthy and hydrated cat's nose should be cold and moist. It will occasionally be dry, but is shouldn't always be dry. It also shouldn't be too wet, as this can signal an illness such as a cold or upper respiratory infection. It shouldn't be to one extreme or the other.
