This Cat Owner Had No Idea Why He Struggled to Breathe in His Sleep . . . Until He Installed a Camera

Anyone who owns a cat knows that once nighttime rolls around, all bets are off. Just last evening, my gaggle of kitties dug all the dirt out of my potted plant and promptly used it as a litter box. Classic, right? And while our cats' antics are hilarious — and annoying — a guy who goes by Greed on Twitter had a bigger problem: he was having trouble breathing while asleep.

In an effort to get to the bottom of a potentially dangerous health issue, he set up a camera to see what was causing the problem. Much to his surprise, the culprit happened to have four paws and a tail. He shared his findings to Twitter on July 21 with the caption, "I couldn't breathe when I slept so I installed a camera" — and it promptly blew up. So far, the tweet has amassed 1.2 million likes and more than 313,000 retweets. Apparently, Greed isn't the only person who's experienced near-death by cat, as a ton of other pet owners chimed in with their own experiences! Read through to take a look.
