Everyone—even cats—gets a little gunk in their eye now and then. The body has a way of flushing out foreign materials and dust that deposits a small amount of discharge in the corner of the eye. However, not all discharge is normal for cats.
If you’ve been considering adopting a cat, one of the most common pieces of advice you may have heard is “Adopt two! It’s so much better!” While there is logic behind adopting two cats simultaneously—especially ones from the same litter—there aren’t only benefits, leading some to question whether two is really better than one.
Cancer is devastating. It can affect almost any part of the body and have dire consequences. Unfortunately, cancer does not only affect humans. Our pets can also develop this terrible disease—particularly cats, six million of which are diagnosed with cancer every year.
Cats are soft little furballs (except for when they’re hairless). For the most part, cats take care of their fur on their own—they use their tongues to cleanse themselves of dirt, remove dead hair and keep everything tidy. Sometimes, though, they aren’t able to fix all the problems with their coats.
Most domesticated cats can live to be around 15 years old, and sometimes even longer, depending on their health. But a lot can change in your cat from the time it is a kitten, enters adulthood and becomes a senior cat.
Human children go through a teething process where they lose their “baby teeth” and grow in their adult teeth. While we are all familiar with this process, many people don’t realize that cats do a similar thing.
It’s a common belief that cats and water don’t mix. Pet parents dread giving their cat a bath, cats hate getting sprayed with water from a spray bottle, and getting caught out in the rain with their cat is a pet parent’s worst nightmare.
Almost every pet parent fears the day when they open the door of their home or accidentally leave a backyard gate open and their beloved cat or dog darts out and runs away. In their panic, pets can wander quite far from their homes without any way of knowing how to return.
Today’s world is busier than ever. Between work, social events, children’s extracurriculars and so much more, you could be running around all day. Add weekend trips or vacations to the mix, and the average individual is facing a lot of time away from home.
Although many people consider cats to be “inside” animals, an increasing number of pet owners are allowing their cats to roam around outside or are taking them on outdoor adventures. This can be great, as long as your cat’s temperament allows for it.
