I have a 3 month old Siamese mix .. He looks more Siamese.. He has been having a problem breathing and is struggling really hard since I got him.. Numerous trips to the vet, yesterday I found out that his rib are inverted in instead of out.. Sad but he has a very short life span the vet said.. Also he has two fractured vertebra's , but those do not seen to keep him from being a playful kitten.. I am so hurt that we know that he want be with us much longer.. Such a loveable little guy and extremely smart.. I am asking by chance is there anything that we may be able to do to help him????? Anyone know of anything please send me an email... Please. And Thanks!!!!

      I am so sorry to hear this. I think it's called flat chest syndrome.Genetic. Apparently outcome can go either way. Do you live in a major city?
