If your ragdoll cat starts sneezing, it’s likely she’s suffering from feline allergies. In this article, we’ll discuss the symptoms, causes, and treatments.

What Causes Ragdoll Kitten to Sneeze? There are many possible reasons for a kitten sneezing, but the most common is a cold or allergies. Other reasons for kittens sneezing can be viral or respiratory infections.

One of the main reasons for sneezing is infection. In some cases, a veterinarian may take a swab from the mouth, throat, eyes, or nose and send it to a lab to confirm infection. Inhaled irritants or allergens are other common causes of cat sneezing. Viral, bacterial or fungal infection.


The first thing you should do is determine the cause of your ragdoll cat’s sneezing. While occasional sneezing in cats is normal, it is a sign that something is wrong.

The symptoms of Cryptococcosis include sneezing and a nasal discharge. More severe symptoms include fever and difficulty breathing, swollen or ulcerated nose and even superficial skin nodules.

In addition to bacterial infections, sneezing in ragdolls can be caused by other conditions. Dental diseases, in particular, can cause a sneezing cat. These infections can result in sinus disease or an infection of the cat’s teeth. The teeth are located next to the nasal passage, and if an infection develops in the teeth, the barrier between the tooth socket and the nose can open and food can get in.

While some causes of sneezing in cats can be life-threatening, many of them are treatable. Your ragdoll cat may only sneeze once, but repeated sneezing can indicate a more serious condition. While it is possible to diagnose and treat a sneezing cat in the same day, it is important to see a vet if you notice the sneezing for more than a few days.

While it is rare for a ragdoll cat to sneeze, there are certain symptoms that may indicate that your ragdoll is having a respiratory problem.
