Thomas (my 1 year old) occasionally has a type of wheezing/gasping fit. I've heard it happen 2 or maybe 3 times since I've had him (9 months). He lays on his side on the floor and wheezes very loudly, his little chest seems to heave. Then after a minute or two he stops and seems normal again. It almost sounds like when Kitty gets hairballs. So it could be him just coughing on something, but it's weird. As far as I know, Thomas has never had a hairball.

I'd hate to take him in to the vet to try to explain this mystery condition...but I'll probably ask the vet at his next checkup. In the meantime, I thought I'd see if anyone here had any idea what this could be.
