Why is my FEMALE cat breathing like this?
Question by Rebecca S: Why is my FEMALE cat breathing like this?
Okay. Last night we fed our female cat this food … “Purina Cat Chow – Indoor Formula”. About 24 hours later, she is breathing in out & out pretty hard & deep but pretty repaidly. She thrw up the food a few hours after she ate it. It IS/WAS “hairball control” but she hasn’t had a single one yet. She came from a house that she lived at for about 1-2 years that used a coal/wood-burning stove real hard (almost every day). She has been out of that house for over 2 years & just started breathing like this yesterday. She HAS been breathing a bit odd for the past month but just a DRAMATIC change since last night. WE CANNOT afford a vet in the vicinity (York, PA). We are trying to get help ANYWHERE & NOBODY seems to want to take a “payment plan”. As well, we are VERY limited income. ANY HELP PLEASE !!! We have had this pet longer than all our others & if she dies, my wife will be obliterated !!! And we LOVE our pets!

It may be heartworms, pneumonia, congestive heart failure, asthma, allergic rxn, the options are endless. I would try to borrow from a friend or family member and take her to the vet. Hawk something at a pawnshop, whatever it takes. Just because you go to the vet doesn’t mean you have to follow all their suggestions. Just get an idea of what she may have and what the options are, at least.
