Cat Age costs
Keeping your cat at an ideal weight can protect his or her health. Research shows that an estimated 35-40% of cats are obese, significantly increasing their risk for developing diabetes, lameness, non-allergic skin conditions, and other health conditions.
Great news! Your cat is likely an ideal weight for an optimal CatAge. Being able to feel your cat’s ribs, and having a noticeable waistline are good, healthy signs. On the above scale, your cat ranks a 5.
Neutering and Spaying
Neutering or spaying your cat has many health benefits: it lowers the risk of certain cancers, reduces the chance of certain illnesses, and reduces certain behavioral issues that may, unfortunately, result in euthanasia.
Spaying your cat was a great decision. Spaying minimizes the risk of breast cancer and uterine infections, as well as prevents unwanted pregnancies.
Periodontal disease, caused by plaque buildup, can ultimately affect various organs of the body and the nervous system if left untreated. Cats over the age of five become more susceptible to oral diseases, so it is important to keep your pet’s teeth and gums clean with annual dental visits and regular home dental care.
Giving dental treats and brushing your cat’s teeth are great ways to keep your cat’s oral hygiene in top shape! Keep up this healthy habit. Maintaining your cat’s oral health helps keep her healthy and happy.
Your cat’s really bad breath could be caused by excess plaque and calculus deposits on the teeth. Without treatment, this could lead to painful gum and bone infections. Regular visits to the dentist, in addition to brushing and/or supplying dental treats, may help eliminate this problem.
Your cat’s somewhat yellow teeth are not cause for alarm, but you should consider a home dental care program and annual dental exams if you haven’t already. Dental treats and brushing can help maintain healthy, white teeth between cleanings.
Annual vet visits are an important part of every cat’s life. The visit gives the veterinarian a chance to evaluate your cat’s health and detect problems before they turn into serious illnesses.
Way to go! You are taking great care of your kitty by scheduling regular veterinary checkups. These exams make her CatAge younger!
To keep your cat healthy for years to come, your veterinarian may recommend a series of vaccinations. If possible, it’s best to begin these vaccinations in kittens as early as 6 to 8 weeks of age.
All vaccination programs are not the same for all cats. Ask your cat’s vet for a schedule specific to your cat's health care needs. This also will help remind you when it's time to vaccinate.
You’re taking great care of Baby by having her vaccinated. Remember to ask your vet if revaccination is necessary and whether your cat has received all the necessary shots.
Good job. You’re taking steps to prevent heartworm and/or fleas and ticks, which helps make your cat younger.
The healthier cats are, the lower their risk of disease. A balanced diet, regular exercise, weight management, and lots of love are all important defenses against illness and disease.
Baby’s CatAge is younger because she lives in a smoke-free environment. Recent studies show that cats who are exposed to secondhand smoke have a greater risk of developing certain cancers than cats who live in smoke-free environments.
Food and Nutrition
Different cats have different nutritional needs. Deciding which type of food and how much is best for your cat can be confusing. Use the following steps to help shape your cat’s menu—and her physique!
Recent statistics show that approximately 35-40% of cats are overweight or obese. Following cat food package instructions and using a measured daily amount of food are the best ways to control food quantity and reduce the risk of obesity in your cat.
What a good caretaker you are! You’re taking the right measures to keep your cat’s daily food quantity in control.
Every cat’s dietary needs are different. Determining how much food to feed your cat for optimal health depends upon your cat’s metabolism and activity level, as well as the nutrient density of the food. Even cats of the same age, size, and activity levels may not eat the same, due to differences in metabolism rates.
Great job feeding your cat throughout the day! Cats like to eat occasionally throughout the day, and should have frequent access to food and water. Be sure to leave her bowl out for several hours each day, and provide fresh water at all times.
It is important to know how much food your cat eats throughout the day. If you live with more than one person, assign regular feeding duties to keep your cat from eating too much or too often.
More than one person is feeding your cat, so it is important to create a schedule for everyone so that you can regulate the times and amounts of food your cat receives. Too much food or too many treats may cause your kitty to become overweight. In order to cut down on confusion and overeating, you may want to restrict feeding duties to one particular person.
Exercise and Activity
Although indoor cats tend to live long, healthy lives, these sedentary critters are at an increased risk of obesity and other serious health conditions. Whether your cat is an indoor, outdoor, or an indoor-outdoor cat, encouraging exercise can help keep your pet physically fit and mentally healthy by burning calories, increasing muscle mass, and strengthening cardiovascular health.
Cats are curious animals. However, this heightened curiosity can get them into trouble. Keeping your cat’s environment safe at all times will help make your pet’s CatAge younger and ensure a longer, happier life.
Your cat may enjoy being outdoors, but by allowing her to go outside unsupervised, her CatAge is older. Cats who roam freely outside are at greater risk for a shortened life span, living an average of only 5 years. Keeping your cat safely confined indoors can increase her odds of living up to 15 years or more. Cats kept indoors reduce their risk of attack, are less likely to contract diseases or parasites, and are less likely to require emergency treatment.
Congratulations for keeping your kitty safe in your automobile! Cat carriers are the safest way to transport your cat in all types of vehicles. Protecting your cat from potential accidents and/or injury on the road makes her CatAge younger.
The way your cat acts when meeting new people or cats can indicate if she has behavioral issues. Inappropriate aggression (biting, attacking humans and/or other animals), inappropriate elimination, and other behavior problems are often the reason why people give up their cats to shelters.
You indicated that your cat hides or shies away from people. You can teach her how to be a more social animal. Try spending more time petting or playing with your cat. Cats desire attention and in time, will learn to enjoy human contact.
Owning a cat can be a wonderful experience. Cats can be companions and playmates. A healthy and happy cat can be a wonderful addition to any family.
