Kiki throwing up foam, breathing hard...

Hello all, my cat awoke me tonight with the sound of her throwing up. It was very foamy - about 3 times she did this. She lied down on her side and is panting even occasionally making the saddest sounding cries. It's 2am here now - if it was normal time I would take her to the vet but...she's been this way for about 30 minutes, any ideas please?? Don't know what to do -

This could well be poisoning or a blockage, please get her to a vet asap..you must have an emergency vet somewhere near?

Yes, I just got back from a 24 hr vet I found online. Kiki did not make it. The vet told me she had a collapsed lung - pneumothorax or something?? not sure how to spell, will look that up.
This was so sudden, still in a bit of shock.

Could throwing up trigger a pneumothorax? I'm not sure how the foam vomiting and lung collapse are linked?

I know in humans they can get spontanoues pneumothorax which really has no cause. Perhaps the foam was from pulmonary edema, maybe there was fluid in the lung from swelling. Either way, I am so very sorry for your loss, that was very fast and unexpected it seems like.
