I know no-one can give a diagnosis over the internet, but I'm hoping there will be some owners of asthmatic cats here who can give me an idea of whether that might be what I'm looking at. When Eva first came into our house in July she was quite sneezy and snuffly, which we just monitored because it was fairly mild. It didn't get worse, and after a while went away altogether. We put it down to her being "a bit allergic". At the beginning of December, we moved into a new home, and shortly after we moved, she developed a cough that seemed to be a hairball cough. We gave her hairball treatment, which didn't make a great deal of difference. My OH watched her coughing and said it was like she was almost sick and then gulped something (that she presumed was the hairball) back down again. We didn't take her to the vet because she'd already suffered - and was still suffering - from a lot of stress from the move, and she's absolutely terrified of going in the carrier. The cough went away, but we didn't see any signs of a hairball. Just before Christmas, she started coughing again, worse than before. A couple of days after the cough came back, we discovered mould growing in the corner of the bedroom where she spends a lot (probably at least half) of her time. We treated the mould with bleach spray and put an electric heater in the corner of the room to stop it coming back. Her cough went away again. Since then, she's had occasional and less severe bouts of coughing. We can usually link them with times when the air has got particularly damp and there's condensation starting to form on the windows. We're doing everything we can to avoid this. She's most likely to have a coughing bout when she's just woken up, or even to wake herself up by coughing. We've tried to get a video to show the vet because we know that's what he'll ask for, but haven't managed to be in the right place at the right time with the camera yet. I'm asthmatic, and I recognise her symptoms and triggers - mould, damp and stress - as being very common triggers for me (I've had to up my medication since we've moved). The timing of the coughing bouts is familiar, and I also tend to be "a bit allergic" and take daily antihistamines. I've also looked at some videos of asthmatic cats, and the way she stretches her neck out and gulps between coughs seems very similar. But I also know there are other things that can cause coughing, such as a heart condition. We're watching her carefully - she's never left alone - and still trying to get a video to show the vet. What can we expect from the vet if he does agree with me that she could be asthmatic? And is there any other advice that asthmatic cat owners (or even owners of asthmatic cats) can give me?
