    Wow.... that is a very old myth..... Cats cannot take your breath away. If that were the case there would be many, many dead people! My cats will stand on my chest as I sleep, but it is usually because they want something.... warmth, attention, food..... Cats do not stand on people's chests to take their breath away.

    Cleo's right, that's an old wives tale and isn't true. I'm not sure where it came from but probably in the distant past when it may have been uncertain why people died their cats got the blame.
