Kitten has black mucus coming out of its nose

by Pam
(Idaho)

I adopted a kitten at 8 weeks old and it has black mucus coming out of its nose since I got him. This kitty (male) was abandoned when I got him.


The black mucus has been draining out of the right nostril primarily. He's a sweet kitty but I would like to rid him of this problem.

When I took him to the vet they had no idea what was causing it. He is about 8 months old now and still has the black mucus.

Anyone have any ideas to cure this? He seems healthy otherwise.

He also appears to be a short hair oriental or a Egyptian Mau. He is mostly white with brown and black tabby areas on his back and tail.

Second opinion
by: Kurt (Admin)

I agree with Ailurophile615. This is a problem that sounds like it needs fixing. I would want a second opinion, and a specialist might be a good idea.

Kitten needs help
by: Ailurophile615

I love that you adopted a baby most people would ignore. And, that you took him to the vet early on. My opinion: If at all possible, back to a vet; preferably one that specializes in cats. If you get another big, vague answer, ask for a referal to a vet school or specialist. If money is a problem, ask the vet, the SPCA, an area no-kill shelter, etc., if they have ideas on how you can get help to pay vet costs. There are all sorts of things that could be happening-few will heal themselves at this point.
In the meantime, feed your baby the very best premium diet you can. Do everything possible to promote a healthy body and mind. Remember that he needs quality meat, lots of play and exercise, a safe, warm place to sleep, a clean box, and, lots of love and attention. My prayers are with you and him.
