Cat Tail Vaccines Cats in Hunger Games Reader Opinion Poll

Vaccinations in the Tip of a Cat’s Tail

According to the authors of a study recently published in the  Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery,  giving vaccinations in the tip of a cat’s tail instead of

below the knee encourages more cat owners to have their cats treated for cancer if the disease develops at the injection site.

At present, injections are given below the knee joint of the leg, with the understanding that amputation is the most effective treatment for cancer near vaccination sites.  But, many owners reject amputation because it is  disfiguring, painful and expensive.

The study examined administering vaccinations in the tip of a cat’s tail and found that it appeared to be as effective as giving shots at traditional sites. Tail vaccination would make surgical treatment of cancer near vaccine sites much easier and less disfiguring, the researchers said.

“One to 10 cats out of every 10,000 vaccinated against infectious diseases develop cancer at the vaccine injection site. It’s still important to vaccinate because death from these infections is much more common than the cancer, but unfortunately this complication is one that does affect thousands of cats each year” -Julie Levy, a professor of shelter medicine at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.

Cat Power Tower! The Ultimate Cat Entertainment Center

Friends, Please give a warm welcome to Pat, the  feline behind the creation of the  Cat Power Tower.

GRACEY: Pat, first I want to welcome you to our Conservation Cub Club. I am truly honored to be interviewing  a creative genius. Not only are you the Chief Feline Officer at Cat Power Tower, weren’t you also instrumental in the design of the Cat Power Tower (CPT)?

PAT: The honor is mine Gracey. Yes, I had a paw in the creation of the Cat Power Tower. I started out as product inspirer, and then moved up to product tester. Now I’m actually the company’s CEC (Chief Executive Cat), but I think I like Chief Feline Officer (CFO) better! It sounds more feminine and with my name being Pat, I’ve been mistaken as a boy by some of my Facebook friends.

GRACEY: Oh, I like that term  product inspirer!  I thought you had to be involved, because only a feline mind could create such a fantastic cat entertainment center. Ask your dad if you can have both the CEC (Chief Executive Cat) and the CFO (Chief Feline Officer) titles at Wiser Pet Products. That way you won’t be giving up any power!  What first inspired you to create the Cat Power Tower?
