Pico has always had a nice dry nose.

Harley's is perpetually damp. O__o

From what I have read the wetness, or dryness of a cat's nose isn't a good indicator of good(or bad) health. A cat with either could be healthy or not.

I have one cat with wet nose one with dry. The wet nose cat is very healthy and the dry nose is often ill. But I don't have a clue if this will apply to any other cat.

Wet nose is a sign of a healthy cat but the will be dry after they have just been sleeping.

They're both healthy, it's just that one cat always has a dry nose, the other always has wet. I'm just wondering what causes the difference?

Simbas is usually dry when sleeping, but wet otherwise. Boos is usually wet. I hate to bother her when shes sleeping because Simba does that enough on his own. lol.
