For a couple of weeks before we went away I was watching Turk closely because he wasn't using the litterboxes properly which is very unusual for my cats, and any catslaves out there will know- a change in a cat's toilet routine is the first sign of trouble!
Here's a short video I took tonight when Turk was curled up on my bed so you can see what I mean by strange breathing.
He noticed some discomfort when he pressed on Turks' tummy, but said everything sounded normal and Turk had no fever. He was also eating a little before we left...
And once again, the vet underestimated how well I know my cats.
It frustrates me immensely when they do that. I work at home, with my five cats indoors. I see immediately if one of them isn't well or starts behaving strangely.
He gave Turk an antibiotic shot and gave me some more pills to dose him with for a couple of days.
His breathing is still laboured which worries me immensely and I am seriously considering taking him to another vet in the morning...
