Snoring

He has done it since we got him and has seen a vet...so I ruled out sickness was just worried maybe he had a nasal passage issue with the very horrible circumstances in which we got him

I don't know (or remember?) what horrible conditions you got Gaius under, but cats can develop permanent damage to their nasal passages if they go for extended periods of time suffering from untreated upper respiratory infections. However, I wouldn't worry too much about snoring, a lot of cats snore without having anything seriously wrong with them.

Only my British Shorthair seems to snore, and he's got that short nose which I think causes the issue...

As Patti says, it could be nothing...but if a cat has had chronic upper respiratory infections then that can lead to scarring too.

We contacted a breeder in our area and went to look. We got there and this poor tiny kitten was in a cat carrier. All he had was a baby receiving blanket. No water no Momma cat. When I was able to get him out he had matted eyes and crust on his nose...needles to say I payed for him and took him home and called the vet. He was treated for lots RI and really bad worm infestation. I believe his snoring is lasting effects. I reported her immediately. I love our baby boy...he was only 6 weeks old and we nursed him to a healthy kitty.

6 weeks old?! Wow. I cannot believe that someone would sell a kitten that young! That is so appalling.
