Sad could me vaping be making one of our cats sick?
We have 3, and one of them, "Chumlie(named after our first cat "Chum") has started sneezing recently and he is acting like he is not feeling well. I have never got anything right in his face but on occasion the room would have a vape-haze. The other two cats, "Buddy" and "Sissy" are fine. I am currently vaping under the attic fan (which pulls it straight up and out of the house) for now, but will not be able to use it when the winter sets in. This may cause me to have to give up vaping because I will not enjoy it if I have to go outside.
We smoked cigs around him and he never had a problem, and the Wife and Daughter still smoke them. Wouldn't it be ironic if I have to stop vaping while they get to keep smoking? betcha I would be back to smoking within 3 months!Confused Confused Confused

If they aren't affected by smoking I wouldn't think it would affect them by vaping. Wouldn't make sense to me.

Will try different flavor tomorrow, read somewhere that it my be a specific flavor AND it may not be the vape at all. I just want him to feel better. He has a gentle demeanor and we Love him.

I concur with Umi, it's basically water vapor. Cats are strange creatures, mine would have sneezing fits for no reason would could ever find.

Mos of the ingredients inside the vapour are absorbed by the lungs and a very small portion are exhaled. Maybe it's the level of the nicotine. What level are you using?

I could swear I read somewhere that certain types of juices can have adverse affects on cats specifically. We have a bunny named spencer, he's an indoor free run bunny that is litter trained (they are almost like cats).

So far no ill affects on him but I do use a window fan to vent out the vapors.

A litter trained bunny, awesome. I had a lop years ago and while it was the kindest animal I ever saw, it definitely left a 'raisin trail' wherever it went. Never could get it to train. Then it died, because it got old.

Lightbulb RE: could me vaping be making one of our cats sick?
This is our 3rd bunny, the other two, we had at the same time, lived 10 and 11 years. It takes only a week to litter train them, it's so easy. Sorry to hear you lost him or her. It was so tough when we lost one of the two as it passed away in my arms (we know it was coming). One of the hardest things I had to deal with. The other passed when we were not home but also knew it was coming.

One was a lop, one was a dwarf. Our new bun Spencer is a dwarf. He is such a naughty little thing but also sweet as can be.

Everyone once in a while when he is chilling on the bed he will leave a coco puff or two, no biggie hahaha.

Sorry for the thread hijack btw but I love animals so much Smile

Oh no worries on her passing, she was old. Hey, there are a ton of animal lovers here so don't sweat a threadjack like that. I started it anyway.
