I have asthma. It’s not much fun for a kitty to have asthma. Mostly I am okay, but sometimes I have trouble.
Some symptoms of asthma trouble I get are a hacking cough (especially when I get excited), lethargic, labored breathing, not grooming and/or getting matted fur. If you have problems like these you should go to your v-e-t right away to get checked even if you don’t like it. Not breathing is worse than going to the v-e-t.
I take medicine for my asthma. I take prednisone as needed. Some cats have to take it all the time. Some cats have nebulizers or take other medicine, but I don’t so far. If I have a bad attack and it’s very hard to breathe I have to go to the v-e-t right away.
I take my medicine just the way the v-e-t prescribes and I get checked up regularly. That is what Mom says is best and she is right. You should do that too.
If you get asthma get help from your v-e-t. Then you can run and play. I run and play more than any of the other cats at HotMBC even though I have asthma. Life is good.
Feline Friday is a feature on my blog. My kittehs will be sharing feline tips, cat humor, or really, whatever they want. They are cats, after all.
Pepi is the only male cat at the House of the Mostly Black Cats aka HotMBC. He insists that he is not a token male. The lady cats are kind and do not argue.
