- A respiration rate of 25 to 30 is okay, but even better is about 16 to
24. When you get into 28 to 32, that's still okay, but anything
really above 30 is considered fast. Anything above 40 is labored and
cause for concern. To take your cat's respiration rate, count how
many breaths your cat takes within a 15 second period and then
multiply by 4. Count the rise and fall as 1 breath.

Normal is 25-30 breaths a min . I think.
