Vet Visit

Today I went to the vet. I meowed a little in the car, but mostly I was an excellent traveler. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the windows were cracked, allowing fresh air and new smells to breeze in and circle around me.

Anyway, I went to the vet because I've been having wheezing attacks at night and Meowmy was worried that I have developed asthma. She has asthma and knows how scary it can be.

Everyone was nice to me and called me handsome! The vet said he could hear that my lungs were congested, and says it could be asthma. He gave me a shot and told Meowmy to keep an eye on me and see how I respond in the next few days.

NOTE FROM MEOWMY: The vet wants to determine that this really is asthma, because he suggested there could be other reasons for Legaly's symptoms. Please keep your paws crossed that it is only asthma, something that we can learn to manage, and not something worse!

I have this sort of problem, especially this time of year. I have found that what helps is an air purifier. Mom got me one and it does me well. I actually had to have my 'lungs washed' awhile back. It was a scary thing, but I am better now. But I still wheeze and have much the same problem.

Maybe an air purifier would help?
