So i sent a video of me playing with the cat to my sister ( whos a vet nurse) and my dad. My sister rang me up saying that his heavy panting with his mouth open is a bad sign and he could have heart mumour or asthma. The odd thing was she seemed to take pleasure in explaining how he could die any minute and how I could find him dead, on top of a lot of explaining on different conditions he could have. Now i know shes trying to help but i think because shes desensitised as she sees this a lot she was inconsiderate of my feelings and adding that i could find him dead was unnecessary. My other theory is that because HER cat recently passed shes wanting the same to happen to me as a way to balance the scales or make her feel better. Then she said she would tell our dad but she also felt the need to tell me that hes not going to pay to find out what he has at the vets and that the cats lifespan may be a lot smaller now, at which point i nearly burst into tears as he was sat on my lap looking up at me. I'm just so fed up of everything now. This year has already been hard for me because i have cut contact with my mother and haven't got any real friends, plus a lot of meds to control my anxiety. My cat has been the only thing there for me and I love him so much and now my sister is making it a bloody pantomime to cope with. I just dont know what to do now

Ignore your sister and ignore thinking about motivations.
Do tell your dad and that your sister said he wont pay and if that is true?
Ive noticed when playing with my cats if you play with them a lot they dont know when t ive up chasing and they can breathe really hevaily because they are tired.


Does your dad ahve the money to pay or are you low income? if you get housing benefit then you could take him to the local pdsa for free to get hin checked?

Maybe talk to cats protection as well or a cat forum to see if they know what sister is on about? They are likely to have more knowledge.
