With all of Sophers past health issues, I tend to keep check peridocially or if she isnt acting her normal self,  on whether her head or ears or nose are feeling warmer than normal and I notice everytime I touch her nose with my finger, just gently put my finger on her nose to see it it feels cool or warm, etc, she lets out a big sneeze.  Does anyone else's kitty do this when you touch their noses? Im guessing its not a big deal, its just curious.

Oreo does, but Punkin doesn't. I don't think its a sign of anything wrong just a quirk. I think feeling the ears for any temp changes is better anyway, their noses tend to be warm if they have been sleeping.

Quirky? Are you calling Sophs quirky? ROFL  Naw, she couldnt be....yes, she is.   Cheesy
Yeah I feel all three to get an idea of how things are going and Ive usually been able to tell with head, ears and nose...and then I check her temp if its not feeling right.  And of course, just general behavior like not eating or sleeping more than normal.  Thanks Leslie!  Kiss

Bella's ears are the first tip to me that something is up.  The skin at the base of hte ears swells up on her. 

It's cute that she sneezes.  Cheesy

Fiona (dog) has a very sensitive nose like that.  She likes to root around in the bedcovers in the morning, happy that I'm awake so I can entertain her, and she is always making herself sneeze. 

Isn't it funny that most mammals have nose pads, but we don't?
