    The loss of color in the gums suggests, as Moonpye says, fainting or syncope. This also suggests an abnormal heart rhythm, when the heart doesn t pump enough

      The loss of color in the gums suggests, as Moonpye says, fainting or syncope.
      This also suggests an abnormal heart rhythm, when the heart doesn't pump
      enough blood to the brain, fainting can result.

      Atenolol is one drug that is sometimes given for certain kinsd of arrhythmia.
      It is also given for other purposes in heart kitties. There are other drugs
      that are sometimes used for particular kinds of heart rhythm abnormalities.

      Can you or the vet hear any abnormal heart sounds or rhythms with a stethoscope?
      Was an EKG (electrocardiogram) done to look at heart rhythm?
