Two of my ferals had asthma ~ mother and son. Very cool cats! Every day they got their puffs and did very well. Hot, humid days really set them them off though.

I love the little "smudge" on kitties nose. Good article and very informative. Thanks Cher.

Thank you Cher. I've lived with cats for over 60 years and did not know that they could suffer from allergies. It may explain some of my fur family's coughing, etc.

It seems that animals can get pretty much the same diseases as humans.

Some of them are fortunate to have people who "go natural". The poison meds aren't any better for animals
than for people.
