Is this an asthma attack? Should I go to a walk in doctor?

I’ve been suffering with a cough for about a week, nothing serious came along with a cold, but this afternoon I visited a friend who has a few cats. I have a known allergy to cats but it’s not normally severe, just typical hay fever symptoms. But about an hour after seeing her i’m really struggling to breath,... show more I’ve been suffering with a cough for about a week, nothing serious came along with a cold, but this afternoon I visited a friend who has a few cats.

But about an hour after seeing her i’m really struggling to breath, coughing every couple of seconds to get some air in.
I had asthma when I was a teenager but haven’t taken an inhaler in about 5/6 years.
Am I having an asthma attack? Should I try see my doctor in the morning or go to a 24 hour walk in centre?
