Well, its Autumn, and as lovely as it is to have the windows open, and smell all the intoxicating scents of birds, rodents, neighborhood cats and dogs... it seems to be having a possible detrimental effect on my breathing. *sigh* Its sure rough to be a cat who can't enjoy the great outdoors without coughing... I suspect leaf mold, pollens, and other culprits are out to ruin my olfactory fun.
This month I've had to put up with receiving my rescue inhalor in addition to my inhaled steroids, almost every day! Enough is enough! How much can one feline be expected to put up with!
Although I have learned that if I just hold still for about 15 seconds, I suddenly find myself breathing freely again - so I've stopped fighting the inevitable.
For all you easy breathing felines out there who haven't experienced this disease, take a moment during your daily hours of meditation to focus on your breath, and thank the feline goddess for it! Don't take anything for granted, we have to remember to be thankful for the things we often don't think about, like being able to breathe! Its truly underrated!
And hey - its a good time to get in practice - almost Thanksgiving, when there's turkey, yummy mashed potatoes, creamed corn, and other treats to be thankful for!
Winter's coming soon, and I don't know how that stale winter air is going to affect me. Check back around the holidays to find out!
Keep breathing, my feline friends!
