      Hi Lynda

      Count the RR when your cat is resting or snoozing. My cat w/o heart disease can get to 60 breaths per minute when he's in super-purr mode, and it is a bit above normal when he's excited for food (he's a piggy sort of kitty). So count the breaths at a distance when your cat is zoned out.
