Hi there. I am so sorry to hear that Chance is not feeling well. Has his breathing rate recently increased? Is his mouth open? Increased respiratory rates, or how fast they are breathing, should be taken very seriously in cats. I would highly recommend that you seek veterinary care for Chance right away.

I just wanted to check in today and see how Chance is doing. Please let me know if he is still having problems. I hope he is doing well.
