Nasal noise in cat

My 10 year old cat has always had a Stridor and stertor problem. It seems to come and go and at times sounds like has a rattly snore on almost every breath and at times it is not there at all. It gets worse when she is straining ( using the litter box) or is stressed (at the groomer). When she purrs it sometimes comes out in a high pitch. She has never really meowed. On rare occasions she gives a very quiet little meow. I am not sure if this is allergies, nasal polyps or ????  I can't afford to get a nasal scope right now but am wondering if that is a necessary route to go.

Any input is greatly appreciated!

It does sound like polyps, it's the obvious pick...although there are other options.

If there's no bleeding/spotting or obvious difficulties in respiration or eating, then it can probably wait (treatment).

But polyps can lead to various dental/infectious issues, so you should get kitty checked as soon as possible.

The lack of meowing may or may not be related to this issue. If kitty can meow at all, it could simply be she just doesn't feel like she has much to say. :)
