I’m really sorry to hear about this happening, but has anyone suggested testing your cat’s blood pressure? I am no vet but I don’t understand how this can happen suddenly and why the coughing? That sounds like something to do with the heart. I believe hyperthyroidism is hard on the heart and could lead to a sudden blood pressure spike that could cause a stroke. I’ve got a cat on daily blood pressure medication now and it’s cheap and easy to give and the quality of life improvement is clear. I hope for the best for you however it all turns out.
