10 Signs Of Cancer In Cats




Cancer is an ever-growing problem for our pets, so it’s no surprise that we’re always on the lookout for anything abnormal. Annual veterinary exams can help ensure your cat stays happy and healthy, but cats are very stoic animals that rarely show any symptoms of disease before it’s too late. To be proactive in our cat’s health, it’s important to take note of any of these symptoms and be sure to check with your veterinarian to rule out any problems.

#1 – Weight Loss

While some cats could stand to lose a few pounds, noticing unwarranted and sudden weight loss is typically a sign that something is wrong. Because cancer cells take a lot of energy and nutrition away from our cats, it’s very common for them to start losing weight rapidly and without obvious explanation.

#2 – Lethargy

Cats sleep a lot, but when they’re awake they do remain fairly active and enjoy their playtime. If you notice your cat sleeping more than normal or showing no interest in play and activity, there’s a good chance he’s not feeling very well.

#3 – Lumps

Lumps are probably the most obvious sign of cancer in cats because they’re often easily seen and felt. Lumps are not always dangerous, but it’s important to take your cat to the veterinarian if you find any. They can appear anywhere on the body and can grow very slowly or very quickly.

           7 Signs Your Cat Has Allergies




Just like people, cats suffer from allergic reactions to all sorts of things in their environment. Pinpointing exactly what they’re allergic can be difficult, but the first step is identifying that your cat has allergies at all. If you notice one or more of these symptoms in your feline friend, be sure to check with your veterinarian to make sure they aren’t allergy-related.


                                     THANK YOU!

9 Ways Cats Are Beneficial To Your Health




Other than our endless love for cats, we’re constantly looking for reasons to justify living with them. So many people don’t like cats so we’re forced to try and reason with said individuals about the benefits of our feline friends. But did you know that having a cat is actually beneficial to your health? Read more to find out how!
#1 – Heart Health



Owning any pet has been found to reduce stress in our lives, but owning a cat in particular seems to be the top pet for stress reduction. The reduced anxiety and stress proves to be beneficial to our heart health. In fact, a study done by the University of Minnesota’s Stroke Institute in Minneapolis followed 4,000 Americans over 10 years to find that cat owners are 30% less likely to die of a stroke or heart attack than others.
#2 – Reduced Risk of Child Allergies
 


A study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology found that children exposed to cats before one year of age were less likely to develop allergies later in life than those who lived in much cleaner environments. So parents, fear not! Let your felines hang out with your babies.

Why Are Cats Attracted To Boxes? The Answer May Surprise You.


If you’re living with cats, you might notice that there is a special connection between cats and boxes. Have you ever wondered why is that? There are a number of reason behind cats and boxes. One main reason is that, cats find a sense of security inside these boxes since most of them spend majority of the day sleeping. Another reason is boxes are made from paper, which is made from trees and the aroma from trees is soothing to cat’s senses and this makes them feel relaxed. On top of that, boxes are great insulators, which makes them feel cozy sleeping inside. So when you have cats at home, you know what makes them happy – BOXES! Click the video below and watch the full explanation why cats love boxes.
