We have recently taken in a beautiful stray cat but I have noticed that I soon find it hard to breathe after awhile. It's as though there is a weight on my chest and I cannot seem to take a full breath.
I am fine after I leave the house - we started leaving the cat outside during the day but it's getting pretty cold up here now.
I took some allergy pills (the over the counter stuff) and they seemed to work Ok if I took them far enough ahead of time but I don't want to be on drugs forever. Ideas? I do not want to have this cat die in the cold - we have tried the local humane society, placing ads, etc.
