A cat’s body functions differently from a persons. A human liver is pretty efficient at processing fat. A cat’s, however, is not. When a cat stops eating, the body begins to send fat cells to the liver. Because the cat’s liver cannot process these fat cells a disease called hepatic lipidosis (fatty liver disease) can result.
So how does this help you solve the debate between serving your kitty wet or dry cat food? We have to look a little deeper into the natural behaviors and dietary needs of the feline companions to answer that.
Buying a purebred cat means bringing home a little mewling bundle that you can take an educated stab at their impending personality.
The oldest cat in recent American history was a whopping 28 years old. There have been a few cats in Australia and New Zealand to come in close to this record, living to be 25 or 26, but as of this moment, 28 seems to be the jackpot number.
If you are a cat owner at some point you may have to entertain the idea of euthanizing a cat. If your cat is in pain or suffering with loss of function and loss of quality of life that is not going to get better, choosing when to end the suffering is a difficult and highly personal decision.
The most important factors relating to when do kittens start walking usually revolve around their development timing. If your entire litter is walking by four weeks of age, this is a sign that they are all healthy and thriving.
If you notice that your cat has not gone into heat again following her last heat cycle, that is a good sign that she is pregnant. Cats that are not pregnant will usually go into heat within weeks of the previous heat cycle.
