Can someone clue me in on persians please? Here is what I have noticed....
Trouble breathing, honestly when I look at his face, I don't even see a nose!
He has trouble swallowing- keeps hitching his throat up, like something is stuck there?

He purrs but he trills at the same time? Is this just because of the shortened sinuses?
I had him on my lap earlier, combing him. When he breathes, at the end of each breath his stomach does a sort of half-hitch, then he relaxes and breathes again- hitch- breathe- hitch
He grinds his teeth when he is upset. That is the only way to explain it. He works his mouth and the noise is kind of like a "whirrawhirrawhirrawhirrawhirra" Once we stop doing the unpleasant stuff- pill, ointment etc..he stops

I feel so sorry for him- I know part of the problem is he just doesn't have the normal breathing tube that he should.
Here he is settling in:
