sthmatic Kitty is an American independent record label founded in 1999 by a community of musicians from Holland, Michigan led by musician Sufjan Stevens and his stepfather Lowell Brams. Some were Holland natives, and others had come to attend local colleges and universities. While the original Holland nucleus has dispersed across the country, the fellowship is still growing, with new friends and shared projects with other independent labels. Asthmatic Kitty is now based in Lander, Wyoming, Indianapolis and New York City.

The label’s name refers to Sara, a stray with feline asthma adopted by Lowell Brams in 1994. Sara lived to be fifteen years old, dying on December 23, 2008. She was based in Lander, Wyoming, a location of high elevation where the thin, dry air alleviated most of her asthma symptoms.
