Question about my cat's nose...


I recently adopted my 1 year old male black tuxedo cat Mochi. I noticed that his nose is oddly shaped with a bump that is symmetrical. He has no problems from this and breaths normally. No drainage from his nose. My suspicion is that this is either a normal variant of cat nose shapes or that he had a past injury. Before I adopted him, he was found abandoned with his siblings for about 3 months in a crack house and was very malnourished. Now he is a healthy weight. I have not taken him to a vet personally, but he has had a checkup and full vaccinations/neutering by the rescue right before I got him and I was told he is in good health.

Photos are attached. By comparison, my other cat Tiny has a perfectly straight nose.

Has anyone seen this before? Thanks!

I would say "normal variant". Even some breeds have a nose like your cat. The Birman breed has a "roman nose" shape.
