Two days ago I was at home and I heard a strange sound coming from the kitchen. I entered and saw my cat laying on his side, his mouth open, and he wasn't breathing, but it looked like he was trying to. At this point he was still alive. I lost my shit, and tried a panicky-i-have-no-clue-what-im-doing attempt to dislodge what he was possibly choking on, but he went completely limp about 15-20 seconds after I found him, and he never came back. I have no clue what happened. Was he choking on something? Nothing ever came out of his mouth, there was nothing around where he was that would give me a clue either. I checked everywhere around the house for possible poisonous materials but couldn't find anything. He was barely 2 years old. No previous health problems. Has this happened to anyone else... does anyone know what could have happened? I will miss him.
