Hey this IS Foo, isn't it?
My kitty - prolly 9 months old now - ever since I've known him (4 months or so?) has always seemed to have had something there. And I'm not a picker so I just kind of look away, wanting them to go away. I grew up with cats and dogs and none of ours ever had this affliction.
When I took him in for shots and then go get neutered, I mentioned them (not many boogs that day of course) and the vet (I've taken all my animals to him for at least 20 years) kinda disregarded them as minor and that was that.
Well, he still has the boogery things - the other orange tabby (same age) has also had them all this time too, but not like how my guy's bigger nose has them now.
On line info is not real helpful ... probably have to go join a cat forum or two (yes I'm in a fishy betta forum where I'm probably securing advice from 12 yr olds), but just thought I'd run it past ya in case there's a cat person out there. Waiting to get paid so I'll probably call the vet on Monday, unless someone has some other boogery advice.
He's totally healthy (in fact he just jumped up and ran across the keyboard, backspaced a few letters, and is now back staring at the fish and smacking my hands/keyboard with the tail).
The other 3 cats in the house (darker colored so I can't see if they have nose problems) look like they are boog free.
