It could be a health issue, but if Salem is acting normally, eating, playing, using his litter box, etc., don't panic. If he was normally a very vocal kitty and suddenly stopped, if his "voice" sounds scratchy, his eyes are watery, his nose is running and he's sneezing a lot, it's time to at least call the vet. He could have an upper respiratory infection (URI), also known as a kitty cold, or an allergy. If it continues or if he starts showing symptoms of not feeling well like lethargy, not eating, hiding, becoming anti-social, then it's time to call the vet.
