Before we start looking at these cat illness problems it is important to remember a few key points:

★ Some believe that cats do not feel pain, this is simply not true. A cat that is to survive in the wild is a cat that doesn't show their weaknesses. A cat that is ill or injured will try its upmost to act as normal as possible. In a world of opportunity it is important that a cat doesn't portray a sign or weakness or inferiority to a opportunistic rival or predator. This natural behavior that is embedded into our cats personality makes it very hard for us to spot signs that a cat is ill. In fact, one sign of an ill cat is the complete opposite of frailty... aggression. A cat will try so hard to act normal they will go from weak and humble, to all powerful and aggressive. If you notice this change in characteristic there could be a chance your cat is sick.

★ Your cat should receive a regular check up from the vet. A qualified professional may be able to spot signs of illness at that important early stage.

★ Cat vaccinations are an important part of cat health care. Like with humans a vaccination will train your cats antibodies to fight off potential diseases which could be potentially life saving.

★ Remember if you are concerned about your pets health in any way you should seek professional cat health advice from a qualified vet.
