The asthma needs to be treated and when it is under control the risk of anaesthetic complications is less. Let me know where you are and I will put you in touch with someone who can give you a second opinion. In the interim your vet may be able to use a "birth control" drug to stop the cycling. The other option is to have the cat mated by a vasectomised tom. That way she will not fall pregnant but she will go off season for a while. There are obviously risks in taking your cat to a cattery to have her mated.
