I thank you for the sympathy. I have a post for poor darling Aggie in Over the Rainbow Bridge. I've lost three cats in the past year. I'm allowed to be a little nutty about the ones I still have.
That bit about the asthma now has me worried, because she did throw up for a few days (we assumed it was also hairball related and still might be). Eowyn also pants a lot, but then, she plays a lot. She's funny because it's like she doesn't realize she's worn out until she stands still for a minute. Then she topples over and falls asleep.
Sometimes right in the doorway!
We'll be keeping an eye on her and, of course, if things get terrible it's off to the vet. But she seems alright for now.
