So Ace, like many here, had firm but really stinky poops. I gradually switched him over to Royal Canin Feline Health Nutrition Sensitive Digestion Dry Adult Cat Food and the smell greatly improved. But one day he's on my lap & it looks like he struggling to breath perhaps. His shoulders kept tensing and releasing. And he would do this consistently when laying down. I brought him to the vet, got blood work, & no problems could be found. I had adopted him & owned him for maybe a year already, & I started to wondered if he had always done this when relaxing on my lap & I just never noticed, but I didn't think so. Then it dawned on me that I noticed him doing this shortly after changing to a different dry food. So I switched to Wellness and he's pretty much stopped the muscle tensing/releasing. Just wanted to share as I searched all over the internet and could find no exact likeness to his problem, & the vet was stumped as well. So maybe my experience might help someone else with a similar problem.
