Recently, I 'adopted' a cat from the neighbor. She had adopted this cat a little over a month ago and realized that she no longer wanted it. I agreed to find the girl a home, and since then I've been unable to get the cat out of my house.
This isn't a horrible thing. She's sweet as can be, amazingly friendly, and not at all nervous about my own cats OR loud noises(not scared of skill saw or hair dryer).
I was laying in bed and she decided to join me, and I noticed that her breathing sounded a little odd, as if, when she breathed out, there was something in her lungs.
It sounded a lot like it did when I have a cold. Sort of like a popping noise when she tried to breathe, as if snot or whatever was in the way.
She doesn't ACT or SEEM as if she is sick. She eats a lot(more than my own cats, actually), is very awake and aware when anyone is around, will take off after me if I leave the room. She is not 'active', really, she doesn't run or jump or play, but she's not acting abnormally at all from what I can tell. She simply sounds odd when she lays next to me, and sneezes from time to time.
I thought it might be a respiratory infection, but from the websites I found:

the only symptoms she has is sneezing and maybe a small bit of snot. It doesn't seem to fit.
Any thoughts or ideas?
