My cat is a little lethargic... and is trembling pretty

Customer Question
My cat is a...

My cat is a little lethargic... and is trembling pretty badly on every breath, it is very constant. She will begin to purr when I pet her still, but I know she's not feeling good...

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your cat. What is your cat's name and age?

Bangles is 15, or 16

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bangles?

She is a little overweight... We had bad habits of free feeding in the past that we are trying to fix. It could be from that, changing her diet and changing her sugar levels
