What does it mean when a kitten has black stuff in his nose?
My kitten also closes one eye and winks. He has been very sleepy, too. He's sneezed a bit and just doesn't seem himself.
It means he has boogers!
My kittens boogers dry black. The vet told me it's important to wipe them out with either your finger or a wet cloth.
Could be black from him getting his nose into something or from dried cat litter dust. Either way, a runny nose and an eye partially closed indicates a possible upper respiratory infection. Especially since he doesn't seem like himself, it's likely that he's not feeling well and will need antibiotics. Good luck!
I just asked my vet this question as my 5 month old kitten (a Ragdoll) gets them occasionally. He said it could be from an upper respiratory infection which is very common for kittens to have. Also he came from a humid climate to a very dry one so I think that could contribute, as well as the stress of traveling here on a plane.

My cat has had an upper respiratory infection for about a year now. I took her to the vets several times and they gave her some anitbiotics and told me that it should clear up on it's own because it is a virus. So I wait and she still is coughing and hacking. I know the phlegm is coming...

What does it mean when a white and tan butterfly lands on your nose?I don't know why they call it a Ceraunus Blue (Hemiargus ceraunus) butterfly but it was white and tan with dark brown spots. It landed on me and then landed on my nose today. - good luck eh?
