Cloud: Hey effuryone!
The silly picture contest was postponed one more week, Mom's still furry busy but things should be settling down soon.
Mom has a question. I've been breathing kinda loud lately. I don't sound congested when I purr, or even congested when I breathe, it just sounds a bit loud with sometimes a very very faint wheeze to it. I don't do it all the time, and I'd otherwise been seeming normal except for a very occasional sneeze (the vets say as long as they aren't more than 2 or 3 times a day it's probably just herpes and I'll grow out of it eventually) until yesterday. Yesterday I was a bit sleepy- not enough for mom to say something was definitely wrong or anything, but a tiny bit sleepier than normal. Problem is, with all the problems she's been through with Texas and now Niko, Mom has turned into a bit of a kitty hypochrondriac. She made an appointment for both of us to be seen on Monday- Niko needs his last distemper shot and recheck of his UTI/ pooper problems anyway, but Mom is still scared. Does anything think this could be kitty asthma (she's only heard me cough once, and that was several days ago)?
Niko: Poor Mom, always worrying about us. I've been doing well- Cloud isn't supposed to be sick now! Mom doesn't think whatever Cloud has is a cold, or at least ONLY a cold. Cloud was sneezing alot back when I was, so with the vet's permission she gave Cloud antibiotic too and we both stopped sneezing for the most part. But the wheezing started about 2 weeks ago, right as we were on our last doses of the antibiotic. It wasn't so loud back then (even now though you still have to hold Cloud pretty close to hear it) and Dad's been insisting this whole time it was just normal cat breathing, so that's why Mom waited so long- but Mom is finally convinced this just isn't normal cat breathing.
Any kitties have any advice? Yoo can email us at catsinmd at gmail dot com if that's easier then commentin'. Fanks!
