Our cat was diagnosed with kidney disease that can be treated with special food. She might have arthritis. She needs a few teeth pulled. Recently she's not as social. Her weight is stable. She's shedding all over the floor.Today my husband found her breathing fast. He calmed her down by laying with her.When my husband held her a few minutes ago she had a few seconds where we could hear her breathing.She's breathing fine now. Her heart rate is 135. She is 14 years old.She's not as social. It seems that when she's stressed we can hear her breathing.We need a VET to answer this question.
