Default re. heart rate - how fast is too fast?

Kiki's heart rate seems to be faster than Boots's, even when she hasn't been in a stressful situation - it's like she's shaking all the time, even when stretched out resting ....do some buns just have a normal resting heart rate that's faster than others'?

This site puts the heart rate at 130-325 beats per minute, which is a wide range
Another site says normal is 250

If you can, try to determine what the rate is. You might feel her pulse at the wrist. I doubt she'll sit still for a full minute like that, so try 15 seconds and multiply by 4. If it is above 250, you may want to have her seen by a vet. Has she been recently for a check-up? Ever had a vet listen to her heart?
