"huffing" while purring

18 year old CRF spayed female tortie point starts purring when petted, but it turns into a "huffing" type noise that seems to emanate from her stomach? Since she does NOT purr at the vet, they couldn't give me any answer. This has gone on for at least 2 years now and I can't see that it's affecting any of her health problems. Lately, however, she is not eating as much of either dry or wet food.

    You may want to try to take a home video of this and bring it in for the vet to see. I know sounds are difficult to describe and it can be frustrating when she doesn't make the same concerning sounds at the vet's office. With her old age, you may just want to get a thorough physical exam and start with some routine bloodwork and see if anything shows up.
