Thank you for using our service. It sounds like your cat may be experiencing some respiratory issues. Coughing, gagging, and congestion in the chest can be signs of a respiratory infection or other respiratory issue. Lethargy can also be a sign of illness.

I recommend contacting your veterinarian as soon as possible to discuss your cat's symptoms and determine the appropriate course of treatment. It is important to address respiratory issues promptly, as they can progress and become more serious if left untreated. Your veterinarian will be able to examine your cat, diagnose the issue, and recommend the best treatment plan.

In the meantime, you can try to keep your cat as comfortable as possible by making sure it has access to fresh water and a clean litter box. You can also try to keep the air in your home moist by using a humidifier or placing a bowl of water near a heat source.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
