It is the same as “mouth-to-mouth” in people. Do not attempt rescue breathing if your cat is still conscious.
- Clamp your lips over your cat's mouth and nose.
- Exhale with enough force to expand the cat’s chest as it would during a normal breath. Be careful not to over-inflate.
- Give three to five breaths.
- Pause to see if your cat has started to breathe on her own.
- Repeat as necessary until you reach help.
