Cat weazes when he breathes

My little Jessi breathes funny all of the time. He is overweight (almost 20lbs) and I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. He snores when he sleeps and when he breathes he sounds like he is always weazing.

My other cat doesn't do that.

What could this be? Is it because of his weight? Any ideas on that at all?
Much appreciated, thanks in advance.

If he's not having any difficulty breathing, if he's not coughing, if he is active and plays normally, it's probably just his weight.

He doesn't cough. He seems to be fine otherwise, playing and all that. Thanks!

He may have feline asthma, lungworms, or tumors and/or growths in the airways.

Try sitting with him the bathroom when the shower is running to see if the steam can relieve some of the wheezing.

The only way to know for sure what is wrong with him is to take him to the vet.
But, if he doesn't seem in pain and he hasn't had any asthma attacks then I wouldn't worry too much for now.
If you notice a loss of appetite, foaming at the mouth, or losing weight I would seek veterinary attention ASAP.

Hrm. That doesn't sound too good, does it. I'm going to try the bathroom thing now. We had him at the vet and he didn't notice anything out of the ordinary.

Maybe he wasn't doing it at the time. He definately has a good appetite.

my opinion of vets noticing things out of the ordinary when the cat's there for something else is not too good.

Yeah.

He was there for his shots. I asked about his weight but I don't think we were there long enough for him to even take notice. It's not constant though. If I pick him up I notice that he sighs a big sigh and weases some. I'm going to look into it more though.

Susan - there was an extra bracket slant quote at the end of the msg.
