You want to monitor the sleeping rate, and 24 is good :-)

Subject: [FH] Respiration Rate - Resting vs. Sleeping

Is it normal for the respiration rate to be higher when your cat is sitting quietly versus actually being asleep?
This afternoon Chloe was sitting quietly on my lap, but her respiration rate was about 32 (the highest reading I've gotten since I began monitoring her). Chloe eventually fell asleep and her respiration rate slowed down to 24.
Do you need to monitor the respiration rate only when your cat is fully asleep?
