Exclamation i need some answers.plz

i have a manie coon. and i was reading up on the breead and i came across this on wikipeda "The most severe threat is feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), the most common heart disease seen in cats, whether pure bred or not. In Maine Coons, it is thought to be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. Middle-aged to older cats as well as males are thought to be predisposed to the disease.[36] HCM is a progressive disease and can result in heart failure, paralysis of the hind legs due to clot embolization originating in the heart, and sudden death." what dose this mean. i really dont wanna lose my baby. crazycatlover
