Cat Infographic. Safe Snacks For Cats

Cats Are Curious About Human Food Too!

When you share your home with a cat, one thing we can all agree on is that they are curious and quick.  One second they are no where to be seen and the next second they are  underfoot or  right next to you checking out what you are doing.  We find this to be true when we are in the kitchen preparing meals.  The cats might be sound asleep basking in the sun, and the moment they hear the refrigerator, or in Annie’s case the water running in the kitchen sink, all three cats are ready and willing to help.

We use garlic and onion almost every day and take extra precautions to make sure they don’t get their paws on any.  We must be mindful not to let any small pieces slip onto the floor or counter.  Even if you think your cat might not eat a piece of onion or garlic, when you mix it in with a source of protein, your cat might find it irresistible.

Even though we try to keep our cats on a regimented diet, there are times when we like to share a special treat with them too.   But it is important to know what you can, and more importantly, what you should never feed your cats.  This easy to follow infographic serves as a quick reminder.

Cat Symptom Checker. Is Your Cat Showing Signs of Illness?

Is Your Cat Showing Signs of Illness?

Cats are genetically wired to hide any sign of weakness. This is not a sign of arrogance, quirkiness or being stubborn. It is from thousands of years of being both predator and prey. Cats both big and small know that weakness puts their lives in danger. Even though your house cat is not in danger of being attacked by a predator, their mind is telling them to be vigilant at all times.

For this reason, we as cat parents must keep a careful watch over our little loved ones. When you are petting your cat, take the time to really look at their ears, eyes, nose.  Are their eyes clear and free of any unusual discharge?  How about their ears? Is there any redness, debris or odor?  The teeth and gum might be a bit trickier to check but in time with a gentle hand, your cat will let you look at their gums and teeth for any potential health problems.

When cats become sick, they rely on us to be on the look out and seek help. PetCareRx created this helpful chart that breaks down cat symptoms by area of the body, then tells you what each symptom could mean.  I thought you might find it helpful too.
