    He’s had several physical exams and whatever tests they do for a new kitten health check. He’s very attached to me so he’s almost always purring when he’s sleeping near me. The higher rate of respiration could definitely just be that he’s purr breathing. I’m still anxious though because he’s less than a year old and a lot can go wrong.

    • Sleeping while purring it comes out to about 54 breaths per min.
    •Deepest sleep it is around 30bpm.

    Thank you for any insight or just commenting to say “my cat is like this”. It is much appreciated. :heartshape:

    Oliver's breathing is quite fast when he's purring but I've never counted it. I've dug up this thread for you. It is about a younger kitten than yours and I don't know if breathing rates are different at varying ages.

    Hey thanks I will read through that one now, before I posted I went back and read a few that seemed related but missed this one.

    Update: just looked at the thread you linked and it made me feel a lot better about it. :dizzycat:
