excess humidity and cats

luvdogsFebruary 10, 2010


At night, i keep my 5 cats in a separate room so i can let the dogs in.

The room suffered significant damage in a wind/rain storm and has been more humid than usual as it drys out from the rain that came in.

One of the cats is sick now - taking him to the vet asap and meanwhile i'm giving him clavamox. His symptom is lethargy - and some inappetance.

Anyone know about a problem with humidity and cats? The other four cats seem just fine.

If the humidity is high enough to cause respiratory distress, none of those cats should be confined in that room, & I don't know that Clavamox will help;
it's an anti-biotic & won't help fungal or bacterial infection.

I'd take that cat to the vet right this minute.

I wish you the best.

Any type of stress can cause all kinds of problems in cats including urinary problems and respiratory problems. Humidity isn't usually an issue by itself- there are millions of cats living outdoors in the tropics without problems. But if there is mold or other allergens because of high humidity that could be a major problem to allergic cats.
