Well here goes Mom got up a little before 4am and she almost fell over me, yes I was on the floor by her bed...usually I would get up and run off and meow, but that night I did not. Mom picked me up and then put me on the floor I went to a cube toy we have in her room the carpet was wet like some drops of wet from something dripped...Mom felt that something wasn't right with me. Mom picked me up again took me into the bathroom so she could turn the light on and so she could look at me and see what was going on...my breathing was raspy and I was wobbly on my feet. Mom told Dad but he stayed in bed...sometimes Mom doesn't understand how he could just stay in bed and not worry about us.
Mom decided to take me out into the family room and kitchen to stay with me and watch me for a little while and make a decision if I needed to go the Vet ER...Mom really didn't want to have to take me because she knows I really hate going into my carrier and I get so stressed out.
Mom gave me my asthma treatment thinking maybe I had an attack and she didn't hear me, and the gave me my medication for when I am sick, her Vet gives it to her just in case I get sick because I have URI...my pupils were dilated all the way no color in my eyes, I was limp and just wasn't Moms sweet boy.
Mom put me in one of the beds with our heating pads and laid by me watching me, talking to me and giving me love...she kept saying please Zeke be OK I can't have anything happen to you and then she pray and asked Tallulah to come watch over me and to not let anything happen to me...Mom was too afraid to cry, but the tears were there sometimes..
After several hours of Mom watching me I started to respond to her by purring and when she scritched me I meowed saying I am Ok Mom...
Mom feel asleep for a short time and when she realized she did she jumped up and checked on me....I meowed at her and I was OK, but Mom wasn't convinced. I just wasn't myself and she has no idea what happened and I don't know how to tell her either. Mom had to get up feed up and then go take care of cats, she didn't want to leave me for long so she hurried back to see how I was doing...
Now Mom knows I love to get brushed every morning and I saw her pick up our new brush we got for Christmas and you know what I got up and wanted to be brushed, I walked normal, I meowed and purred...Mom was so happy to see that I was OK..I didn't eat much.
All day Mom was checking on me and little over kill I say so myself, but I know she loves me and worries when one of us isn't feeling well.
She called the vet and they felt that since I was doing better that Mom should just keep an eye on me and keep giving me my asthma treatment to see how I do..if anything changes I have to go in for check up and maybe tests.
The last 2 nights I have been sleeping with Mom and she keeps checking on me and I know it is because she worries and she loves me...
Thanks Mom for finding me and staying with me when I wasn't doing well, and we know a special angel was with me and Mom we all know who it was...

Purrs to you. I understand all too well. I have breathing problems, and my mom and dad have asthma and my dad has COPD. We have an air purifier going all the time, and we also have a humidifier.
Sometimes I have 'fits' that make me cough, and for whatever reason the past few weeks have been worse. Mommy and Daddy have been coughing too.
Mommy vacums as much as she can, and we have floors over most of the apartment for that reason-she tries to keep things as dust free as possible.
I understand, believe me. I'm sending lots of purrs to you here.
Make sure you jump up on your daddy's chest in the middle of the night when you feel better. That'll show 'em.
love and light,
