It started a few days ago when Julian was trying to throw up a hairball (looked like that to me) and nothing came out. None of my cats ever had any hairballs - maybe because I bathe and blowdry them once or twice a week and they don't groom themselves, maybe because of raw diet, maybe both, I don't know.
Anyway - otherwise Julian looked healthy and his usual self - he was playing, running, eating, drinking, using litterbox etc., so I didn't think it could be something serious.
Yesterday my boyfriend was at my place and told me to take Julian to a vet because he didn't think it was "hairball" but he thought it looked like lung problems or so. Sure I got scared to death and googled and found out it could be asthma, heart problems, lungs problems etc.
I'll try to get him to the vet today but most probably they won't consider it emergency and I may have appointment for only next week... and I'm dying from fear for my cat.
Could somebody tell me what to expect? He has this cough attacks and my boyfriend listened to his chest and said he heard "wheesing" but nothing else seems to be wrong - he is active, in healthy weight, his appetite seems to get even encreased lately, no shortage of breath or panting...
