I have a 14 yer old indoor tabby cat. I just got back from a week away and she is breathing hard. It seems like she has to work to get the air in and is breathing through her mouth. She also isn't eating as much. My mom watched her while I was away and said her appetite seemed to decrease as the week went on, but her breathing was fine.

Does anyone have experience with something like this? Part of me thinks I should take her to the vet, but I have had two separate $500 vet visits in the past month and a half for which I was convinced my cat was dying only to be told she is fine. I just can't spend another $500 for nothing.

Thanks for any help.
