My 9 year old appears to have some sort of asthma as well. For years, I just thought it was a hair ball or something until I found some videos of cat asthma. The weird part is it seems to have no correlation with exercise. She can play and play with no problem. She will just be randomly sitting and have a small fit that lasts anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or more. The only thing that seems to brings it on is sometimes when she gets work about being affectionate. Not really sure what to do about it though. She gets over it pretty quickly and it doesn't happen all the time (that I am aware of). Is this enough to warrant medication?

sorry to hear about your cat, all my previous cats had never any health problems until they were older, and this is the first time i have had a cat with breathing and coughing problems so its all new to me, all i can say is you should probably get your cat checked at the vet, my kitten has been having breathlessnes after excersise since she was six weeks old, she is now six months and there has been a great improvement since she has been on medication, she seems happy and healthy otherwise. Jonesy has got nine tablets left and then she has to go back to the vet and i think she will be getting x rays done, i have seen the videos of cat asthma and when my kitten was coughing like that i took her to the vet that day because a bad attack can be fatal, keep me posted, thanks, jan

Hi My cat has the same symptoms. I thought he was choking at first. He had a coughing fit and then was fine for a week or so, and it happened again. I thought it was a hairball, but nothing came out. Last night it happened again while he was sleeping. He woke up and had a coughing fit. I called the vet and made an appointment for tomorrow. From what I checked out online, it could be asthma, heart problems, or an allergy to something. I will let you know what happens
