My Ragdoll kitten, Solo, hacking or coughing. I wasn’t sure if it was a hairball, he has never coughed anything up before. *edit* turns out he has seasonal asthma. Vets took an xray of his chest and diagnosed asthma. It seems symptoms are worst during warmer weather. He got some antibiotics and steroids which cleared it all up however we will see if it returns with the changes in weather. I hope this video can help others figure out if their cat has asthma or just a hairball!
