I got a phone call late last night from a friend of mine that has a Himalayan cat. She said it couldn't move, like it was paralyzed and was panting really heavily like it was having a hard time breathing. Unfortunatly she called me back a half hour later and her precious kitty had died. This all happened so quickly. I looked in my first aid for cats book and the only thing I could find was maybe that it was a spider bite or something similar. Does anyone have any idea what could have killed this kitty so quickly. Could it have been a stroke or heart attack? She said it had thrown up once the day before but she didn't think much of it, thought maybe it was a furball. I feel so sorry for her so I thought I would write and ask if anyone knows anything about it. Is this something that is common with pure bread cats. I only have domestics and wouldn't trade them for anything. I would appreciate any ideas anyone has. Thanks for your help.
