Hi Rashel, I think your kitty needs to see the vet asap. Can't tell of course, but he could have fluid in the abdominal area, or some other difficulty that really needs attention. Gloria - Original Message - From: Rashel Mereness To: felvtalk@felineleukemia.org Sent: Monday,

Get him to the vet. Could be several things but the heavy breathing isn't good. I had a 2 year old that had a tumor in her chest and it ruptured. We didn't know she had FeLV because she tested negative as a kitten. Anyway the tumor which is usually caused by FeLV, ruptured her heart so she

Distressed breathing could be a sign of anemia, but there is no time to waste posting on the internet. Please get him to a vet ASAP. If your breathing was like this you would go to a doctor.   Don't Litter, Fix Your Critter! www.Furkids.org   From: Rashel
