I have similar problems with my cats, and try

my cats breath much better because of this.
it's a good idea to buy a cheap humidity meter
so you can see the correlation between indoor
air under 30% humidity, and your cat noises.
I try to expose the cat above 50% humidity
as often as I can manage it. humidistat's on
humidifier units are notoriously inaccurate.
I recommend these Tylor units. you can buy
one remote sensor first, later invest in the main
unit and more remotes as needed, then dedicate
one remote sensor to take outdoor readings.
since I live in a apartment house, my hot water
is unmetered/free so I save money by using hot
shower water to humidify the apartment.
New York is a water plentiful State
you can replace your existing shower head with a
restricter head that puts out a gallon per minute
or buy a shower diverter, 1/2"-3/4" hose converter
and a special hydroponic sprayer to get the water
consumed per minute down to a quart per minute.
using the later method I'm able to raise the humidity
in a 700sq/ft apartment from 25% to 50% in an hours.
results vary depending on weather, insulation, etc.
