I know you hate when people do this to you but honestly I'm looking for a second opinion if possible.
Thursday night we had a scare with Bella. Bascially she was sleeping on my lap at about 8ish and all of the sudden she made this snorting sound and went completely still (and DH and I both believe she stopped breathing.) Her eyes were rolled back in her head a bit (but it's hard to tell with a cat) and her mouth was open. We started shaking her to wake her up but she wouldn't move for about 20-30 seconds. Then DH clapped really loudly and shouted at her, and she finally woke up. She was a bit out of it for awhile but then went back to being normal Bella. She did appear to have peed a bit too because there were some small wet spots on the blanket she was on. We found out over the weekend that she had thrown up underneath the bed Thursday night (after the incident).
We took her to the vet on Friday and her bloodwork and vital signs all checked out. Apparently her calcium levels were a bit high but nothing out of the normal range. The vet basically has no idea what happened or why it happened. Told us to monitor her and hopefully it was just a won time thing
Have you ever seen/heard of something like this before? Any thoughts on what may have caused it?
