i need some help!!!:)

hi everyone!i have an amazing 2 years old himalayan cat! :) he is very active, sometimes i think he was supposed to b a dog! however...my problem is;
-he has one tooth that has grown crooked and is always exposed outside of his mouth
-when i pet him too much...he likes it sooo much it makes him choke...and sometimes he throws up
-when he purs he makes a loud sound with his mouth opened,almost as if it is uncomfortable for him to purr!!
i have not yet brought him to the vet, but i will this month!
anyone have any suggestions?

I remember reading another thread about a crooked tooth and the upshot was that as long as it's not causing the cat any problems -- any discomfort or problems eating, for example -- then it's merely a cosmetic thing.

As far as the choking and vomitting during petting, it sounds like some kind of an overstimulation problem. I haven't heard this particular one before, but you might just hold off on the petting sessions until you can have it checked out.

I don't know much about Himmies, but isn't having some breathing problems one health condition associate with the breed? Not sure, just guessing, maybe another member more familiar can filll us in.
