Mika Has Kitty Asthma



Mika ❤️ has been to the vet twice in the last week. We think he has a little bit of Kitty Asthma going on. He has always been a weird noisy breather to me but last week it was a lot louder and his chest was moving a lot more. He even had a few coughing fits & overall didn't seem like he was feeling his best. Our vet put him on a steroid for the week & he had a recheck on Monday. He is feeling & breathing much better now. I am weaning him off the steroid right now. We hope this was just a little flair-up and doesn't happen again. However if it does I have the steroid for him. Also if he did continue to have this problem we have talked about an inhaler with the aerocat chamber but we aren't there yet. We think maybe the change in weather caused Mika's flair-up. Do any of your kitties have Asthma? How are they doing with it?

    Marvin's human seems to have found a cure.

    1. Thank you so much :) It sounds like Marvin gets a topical cream version of the steroid pill that Mika was on.

  2. Sometimes weather changes can cause asthma flare-ups. I hope Mika feels better soon.

  3. Love the article about crazy cat people; good to know they are out there helping kitties who need some help. I have "adopted" several over the years, or I should say, they have "adopted" me!
    So sorry Mika has problems with asthma; good to hear he is better and hope he does not have a relapse. He looks really healthy and happy. Never had a kitty with asthma, so I can't offer any suggestions on dealing with it.
    Take care, and have a good weekend.

  4. I hope Mika feels better soon. I have recurring bronchitis and am getting over a three month coughing fit. Hope you and all your kitties and humans are feeling great.
