My cat sounds flemmy and congested after eating sometimes.

Not all the time but every so often my cat will sound flemmy and congested in her chest after eating. She is a house cat and hardly ever been outside. She eats a bowl of friskies dry food and a half can of friskies turkey wet food a day. Also it seems like her gums may be a little pale. She is almost two years old and besides that is a bundle of mischief. Awesome site I am so grateful for sites like this for people to get info that don't cost anything in these hard times. Thank you

Hi
well as you can appreciate I can't give you any definite answers but i will say that it is possible that just like us humans some cats can have weak chests and pick up infections often causing congestion etc. this may be what is happening here but without a vet taking a listen to her chest and heart it is impossible to say whether or not there could be an underlying health issue or not.

I don't know much about friskies cat food, is it a good quality one of a cheaper brand? Some cheaper brands are not good for general well being and could mean that the cat is not getting enough nutrition which could explain the pale gums. There are cat supplements you can give your cat for a period of time to try and perk them up, see this page for more on this.

Of course the best course of action would be to have her checked out my the vet. I know this costs money but 1 visit a year i think is well worth the money just to make sure you are not missing any health issues your cat may have.

Thank you for visiting my site, I do hope it helps provide some support to cat owners.

best wishes Kate
