Has anyone ever experienced a cat suddenly start panting heavily and drooling like a dog?  Our torbie Pearl has had periodic episodes like this for about three years.  Thankfully they're rare episodes, and the vets say they're  not likely to be fatal as she is breathing and getting oxygen, but they are scary as hell and we race her to the emergency vet.  The vets cannot find a root cause. She has seen a cardiologist, an internist, and a neurologist, had echocardiograms twice and a brain MRI, all normal.  She has a very teeny bit of asthma, but the vet said not enough to cause this reaction and also we had an asthmatic cat and we know what that looks like and it's not this.  She sometimes vomits before and sometimes loses control of her bladder during (though not always), and just kind of goes down limp and starts open-mouth breathing and drooling.  She comes out of it on her own.  Sometimes it's taken longer and she stayed in oxygen at the emergency vet, and sometimes she's out of it even before we get the carrier to take her.  She hadn't had an attack since last fall then had an attack this morning but was largely out of it by the time I found her under our bed, so we are just letting her be and watching her very closely.
The internist says it's anxiety, but she is not a nervous cat at all. She's the only one of our cats who doesn't bolt when the doorbell rings, the only one that lets strangers pet her, and she doesn't even mind the vacuum cleaner. She's really chill. So if it is a panic attack, it is being driven by something physiological but nobody can figure out what.  We wonder if it is some kind of seizure or perhaps an allergy that she suddenly feels like she can't breathe normally and freaks out.  She's an indoor cat.

Let's recap, a kitten was found on the street 3 days ago, looks a month and a half old. Everyone runs to the vet when a cat suffers something, however, is there any home remedies to treat phlegm vomit? Everything else is fine.

I came home, my cat seemed tired so was I so I went to bed and the next day I woke up and checked on my cat Jazzy, I first thought he was dead, alone and frantic I think he was in a coma, talked to someone and he was not cold but motionless.  I did not know what to do, called vet when I though he passed and they told me their was only a short time for reviving them.  I was in tears not knowing what to do.  What could have caused him to go into a coma in one day's time without symptoms and then pass?

Hi my name is caren and my cat name was sauke. He was given to me by my boss, they received him from an older women who was unable to care for him. 
When i brought him home him months ago, he quickly adapted. He was so loving and very gentle. He loved cuddling and kissing. He also enjoyed sleeping in the bed, either next to my head with his head and paw on me, or under the covers next to me, no matter what he love curling up on you. He was very clingy not mean at all. 
I was told he was an indoor cat, he enjoyed the window and laying in the door way outside. He never left the yard or went away for long. He would only go outside if i was there and came right back. On friday i went to work and he didn't want to come in, i didn't think anything of it my fiance would be home soon to let him in. When i got home i notice he wasn't around did feel alarmed. I started noticing it was getting later and no sign of him. I went to call him and nothing i decided to go to sleep i would here him if he came to the door. The next morning i still no sign and figured he was lost and i proceeded to look around. I found him laying on the grass from a distance ( few house down) across the street. I wasn't hundred percent positive so i called my fiance and confirmed it was sauke. We gave him a proper burial and he know at a gulf course over looking the the gulf course. When my fiance works. My fiance told me he did not have any broken bones nor blood or foaming. Its strange to me how he was laying there and i still hope that it wasn't sauke. The only other thing we noticed is he was getting too skinny and sauke eat way too much. I would feed him three cans of food big ones and dry food. I was told that was too much but he never threw up. I was told to cut him back. He only ate salmon, tuna he was a bit spoiled, i give him salmon sticks for treat would break it up for him. Please help!! 

What are exotic shorthair kitten behaviors like

Our beloved cat of 14 and 1/2 years, passed away Sunday April 30th. He was our entire life- a big black and white domestic longhair whom we loved more than life itself. The pain is nearly unbearable. I haven't eaten in 4 days. I have lost family member's and it didn't hurt this bad. We are having him cremated but will take a couple weeks to get him back. I'm hoping once we do, the pain will subside a bit. Can anyone help us to endure the pain?

I am deciding whether or not to purchase a persian himalayan mix kitten. The kitty does not look like it has the flat face but I was wondering if that can change? I really prefer the doll face. The kitty is pure white like the mother and grandmother.
Also when a cat such as a persian has not been bred with a regular cat does that cause more health problems?  And final question, the kitty is 5 weeks old has not had shots or dewormed, vet check and the price is $550. Any help would be appreciated! 

Hello, I'm actually asking for my daughter. Her seinor cat died this morning very suddenly. She said he woke her up about 9:00 am meowing (yallowing) and she found him lying in his own pee. She immediatlly to him to the nearest vet about 15 minutes away from our house. He crawled into her lap on the drive there and died. The vet said they couldn't find anything wrong with him, they did not do an autopsy. He was about 11 years old. She's just heart broken. Any thoughts would help us. Thank you.
