Question by anw122: Do you live with a cat that has asthma?
If so how does that work out for you?
I am asthmatic. I’d feel incredible bad for my cat if it turns out that he has asthma. Going to the vet on Monday to talk about it.
We got an air purifier because the apartment was making me cough so bad I thought I’d lose a lung. The cat seems to have gotten worse sense then. Over time, not necessarily because of the filter.
He does run around like he’s lost his mind, so I could understand not breathign so great.

Yes, I do actually do. It’s got varying degrees in kitties as it does in humans. As my little furry one got older, he seemed to grow out of a lot of those symptoms, requiring less and less monitoring. When the forest fires were rolling in (Southern California) he did have a few flare-ups from the soot in the air, but with the addition of an air purifier near where he sleeps, he was able to get along just fine.
Cats do seem to have more of an adaptive respiratory system than humans do, but just to get a handle on how your own cat is doing, take him to the vet to get evaluated. If it turns out he does have asthma, the vet will advise you on simple treatments if you should ever need it.
