Moany moany...

Do any of your cats moan? When MowMow is settling down to nap, when he's re arranging his sleeping position, or if I bug him when he's sleeping he lets out these looooonnnggg moans and groans.

This is something fairly recent. I've cheched him over and he doesn't seem to be in pain and his chest sounds clear.......

When Satin flops down on the floor sometimes she'll let out a noise, not sure it's really a groan and it's not a long one but she does make noise even sometimes when she's been sleeping and stretches.

Kitter groans everytime he switches positions, stretches or he'll just randomly let out a groan while he's sleeping. He meows/groans/chirps if you pet him or kiss him when he's sleeping and you wake him up.

That sounds cute! Neither of mine moan. Abby trills a lot, while Muffs is generally silent.

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

Genie frequently chirps and trills and moans when she moves around in her sleep and especially if someone rubs her when she's sleeping. Then again she's very talkative generally.

My kitty, Caroline, moans in her sleep, too. She moves a bit. I was wondering if this was normal.

Sinatra lets out a squeal when he stretches, no groaning though.

when i pet my cat when hes sleeping, he does that moaning. Sounds like hes a child and groaning because mom is waking him up! Im pretty sure its normal or at least not a health problem.

Some of our cats will moan, or chitter if they're dreaming, and that's quite normal. But not so with Efghenye. He has asthma, and is on an inhalant. X-rays revealed scarred lungs from the asthma. At present, one of our new rescues, Purna, is quite noisy when she sleeps, and the vet hears raspiness in her lungs. We've been told to keep her on a course of Panacur in case she has roundworms or lungworms in her lungs, and if that doesn't work, we're to have her x-rayed for possible asthma or other problems. Sometimes heart problems cause an odd sound when the cat breaths.

But your cat's probably fine.
