Hi Michelle, I understand, if I see my kittiy breath in an unusual way, it
always makes me nervous. I did have 2 develop mediastinal lymphoms, and
it started out with faster breathing and regurgitating food.

I hope you're over reacting. I haven't dealt with tumors so I don't know,
but my best to you and Lucy.

I am feeling stressed about Lucy, and do not know if it is reasonable or I
am just paranoid. A few times over the past week, including tonight when I
got home from being gone for 2 days, it has seemed to me like her
breathing is faster than normal. She is purring all the time when I look
carefully at her, so it is purring breaths, but it seems twice as fast as
the other cats. I tried to count her breaths but can not see or feel
them, only can hear the purrs through her nose. She is otherwise eating,
playing, purring, etc. normally. I of course always fear lymphoma because
I have lost mine to that. Some of you have had cats with lung tumors. Was
this a first symptom, or was there wheezing and visible breathing?
