if you miss or are short on another card , then yes a diffrent card company can raise your rates , it might be in the contract you agreed to when you sighned up ?
Read the disclosures from your card company - they will explain what they will do and won't. Most financial companies will not reduce your limit or increase your rate because you are making minimum payments - but, they will periodically look at your debt ratios on your credit report to re-gauge your credit strength. If this is falling, they can make changes.
So banks and lenders (credit card companies) will reduce your line, not because of you, but because they may have liquidity issues.
Your best bet is to contact your card issuer and just talk to them - reassure them that you are still a great credit risk.
