Is it true that if we inhale cats fur we get asthama n wheezing and whether seeing a black cat on the road while driving a symbol of bad luck...think it's a myth or something really happening?

I agree with signal20. You have to have asthma in order for the hairs to affect you.

Inhaling cats fur can cause asthma.In lungs it act as an irritant.Our bodytries to expel it.For this some change occure in respiratory tract.It increses musilage production and may cause dialatation of respiratory tract.If this happened you can call it as asthma. The later is a myth.

No those aren't true. The black cat in the road is just an urban legend or old wives tale. Type it into a search engine, or even just black cats, and you'll get a bunch of info on different myths from different areas of the world. I just did it the other day looking up something. As far as the asthma, inahling the fur will not CAUSE ashtma or wheezing. If someone already has asthma or allergies, it can bring on the symptoms of wheezing or cause an asthma "attack". But it's not the actual cause of asthma. Hope that helps!!
