The domestic cat, Felis catus, of the carnivore family FELIDAE, comprising over 30 different breeds. The domestic cat is descended primarily from the wild cat of Africa and extreme southwestern Asia. Though probably present in towns in Palestine as long ago as 7000 years, actual domestication occurred in Egypt about 4000 years ago. (From Walker's Mammals of the World, 6th ed, p801)
Diseases of the domestic cat (Felis catus or F. domesticus). This term does not include diseases of the so-called big cats such as CHEETAHS; LIONS; tigers, cougars, panthers, leopards, and other Felidae for which the heading CARNIVORA is used.
A condition characterized by abnormal posturing of the limbs that is associated with injury to the brainstem. This may occur as a clinical manifestation or induced experimentally in animals. The extensor reflexes are exaggerated leading to rigid extension of the limbs accompanied by hyperreflexia and opisthotonus. This condition is usually caused by lesions which occur in the region of the brainstem that lies between the red nuclei and the vestibular nuclei. In contrast, decorticate rigidity is characterized by flexion of the elbows and wrists with extension of the legs and feet. The causative lesion for this condition is located above the red nuclei and usually consists of diffuse cerebral damage. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p358)
A species of LENTIVIRUS, subgenus feline lentiviruses (LENTIVIRUSES, FELINE) isolated from cats with a chronic wasting syndrome, presumed to be immune deficiency. There are 3 strains: Petaluma (FIP-P), Oma (FIP-O) and Puma lentivirus (PLV). There is no antigenic relationship between FIV and HIV, nor does FIV grow in human T-cells.
An enzyme that catalyzes the acetylation of chloramphenicol to yield chloramphenicol 3-acetate. Since chloramphenicol 3-acetate does not bind to bacterial ribosomes and is not an inhibitor of peptidyltransferase, the enzyme is responsible for the naturally occurring chloramphenicol resistance in bacteria. The enzyme, for which variants are known, is found in both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. EC
A species of gram-negative bacteria that is the etiologic agent of bacillary angiomatosis (ANGIOMATOSIS, BACILLARY). This organism can also be a cause of CAT-SCRATCH DISEASE in immunocompetent patients.

A species of GAMMARETROVIRUS causing leukemia, lymphosarcoma, immune deficiency, or other degenerative diseases in cats. Several cellular oncogenes confer on FeLV the ability to induce sarcomas (see also SARCOMA VIRUSES, FELINE).
A self-limiting bacterial infection of the regional lymph nodes caused by AFIPIA felis, a gram-negative bacterium recently identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and by BARTONELLA HENSELAE. It usually arises one or more weeks following a feline scratch, with raised inflammatory nodules at the site of the scratch being the primary symptom.
A plant genus of the family VALERIANACEAE, order Dipsacales, subclass Asteridae, class Magnoliopsida. It is best known for the sedative use and valepotriate content of the roots. It is sometimes called Garden Heliotrope but is unrelated to true Heliotrope (HELIOTROPIUM).

A life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by KETOSIS; DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
A heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by HYPERGLYCEMIA and GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE.
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

A deficiency of blood coagulation factor IX inherited as an X-linked disorder. (Also known as Christmas Disease, after the first patient studied in detail, not the holy day.) Historical and clinical features resemble those in classic hemophilia (HEMOPHILIA A), but patients present with fewer symptoms. Severity of bleeding is usually similar in members of a single family. Many patients are asymptomatic until the hemostatic system is stressed by surgery or trauma. Treatment is similar to that for hemophilia A. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1008)

Fitzgerald factor (high molecular weight kininogen) clotting activity in human plasma in health and disease in various animal plasmas. (1/12744)

Fitzgerald factor (high molecular weight kininogen) is an agent in normal human plasma that corrects the impaired in vitro surface-mediated plasma reactions of blood coagulation, fibrinolysis, and kinin generation observed in Fitzgerald trait plasma. To assess the possible pathophysiologic role of Fitzgerald factor, its titer was measured by a functional clot-promoting assay. Mean +/- SD in 42 normal adults was 0.99+/-0.25 units/ml, one unit being the activity in 1 ml of normal pooled plasma. No difference in titer was noted between normal men and women, during pregnancy, or after physical exercise. Fitzgerald factor activity was significantly reduced in the plasmas of eight patients with advanced hepatic cirrhosis (0.40+/-0.09 units/ml) and of ten patients with disseminated intravascular coagulation (0.60+/-0.30 units/ml), but was normal in plasmas of patients with other congenital clotting factor deficiencies, nephrotic syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, or sarcoidosis, or under treatment with warfarin. The plasmas of 21 mammalian species tested appeared to contain Fitzgerald factor activity, but those of two avian, two repitilian, and one amphibian species did not correct the coagulant defect in Fitzgerald trait plasmas.  (+info)

Inhibitory innervation of cat sphincter of Oddi. (2/12744)

1 Electrical stimulation with trains of 0.1-0.2 ms pulses of the cat isolated sphincter of Oddi inhibited the spontaneous contractile activity and lowered base-line tension considerably. A contraction usually followed the period of stimulation. 2 These inhibitory effects were prevented by tetrodotoxin 0.1-0.5 mug/ml but were not reduced by hexamethonilm, morphine, or blockade of alpha- or beta-adrenoreceptors of cholinoceptors with phenoxy-benzamine propranolol or atropine, respectively. 3 Adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) and adenosine-5'-diphosphate (ADP) inhibited the spontaneous sphincter activity and caused relaxation thus mimicking the effects of the C-terminal octapeptide of cholecystokinin (C8-CCK), isoprenaline and prostaglandin E1 and E2. 4 ATP alone (greater than 100 mug/ml) or ATP (greater than 10 mug/ml) plus dipyridamole (1 mug/ml), relaxed the sphincter to the same degrees as did the field stimulation. 5 In sphincter maximally contracted by acetylcholine, the effect of stimulation was more marked than that recorded in uncontracted preparations. 6 The present findings suggest that the sphincter of Oddi receives inhibitory nerves that are neither cholinergic nor adrenergic.  (+info)

Site of myocardial infarction. A determinant of the cardiovascular changes induced in the cat by coronary occlusion. (3/12744)

The influence of site of acute myocardial infarction on heart rate, blood pressure, cardiac output, total peripheral resistance (TPR), cardiac rhythm, and mortality was determined in 58 anesthetized cats by occlusion of either the left anterior descending (LAD), left circumflex or right coronary artery. LAD occlusion resulted in immediate decrease in cardiac output, heart rate, and blood pressure, an increase in TPR, and cardiac rhythm changes including premature ventricular beats, ventricular tachycardia, and occasionally ventricular fibrillation. The decrease in cardiac output and increase in TPR persisted in the cats surviving a ventricular arrhythmia. In contrast, right coronary occlusion resulted in a considerably smaller decrease in cardiac output. TPR did not increase, atrioventricular condition disturbances were common, and sinus bradycardia and hypotension persisted in the cats recovering from an arrhythmia. Left circumflex ligation resulted in cardiovascular changes intermediate between those produced by occlusion of the LAD or the right coronary artery. Mortality was similar in each of the three groups. We studied the coronary artery anatomy in 12 cats. In 10, the blood supply to the sinus node was from the right coronary artery and in 2, from the left circumflex coronary artery. The atrioventricular node artery arose from the right in 9 cats, and from the left circumflex in 3. The right coronary artery was dominant in 9 cats and the left in 3. In conclusion, the site of experimental coronary occlusion in cats is a major determinant of the hemodynamic and cardiac rhythm changes occurring after acute myocardial infarction. The cardiovascular responses evoked by ligation are related in part to the anatomical distribution of the occluded artery.  (+info)

Trans-synaptically induced bursts in regular spiking non-pyramidal cells in deep layers of the cat motor cortex. (4/12744)

In deep layers of the cat motor cortex, we have investigated the properties of neurons displaying trans-synaptically induced bursts. In in vivo experiments, extracellularly recorded burst neurons were separated into two subtypes based on their dependence on stimulation sites, the medullary pyramid or the ventrolateral (VL) thalamic nucleus, from which bursts of 10-20 spikes were triggered. The spike amplitude attenuation and frequency adaptation during a burst were more prominent in pyramid-dependent burst neurons than in VL-dependent burst neurons. Intracellular recordings in in vivo experiments revealed that pyramid-dependent bursts emerged from a long-lasting depolarization, while each spike during a VL-dependent burst was narrow in half-width and was followed by a fast AHP, similar to fast spiking neurons. In in vitro slice experiments, intracellular recordings were obtained from neurons that displayed a burst of attenuated spikes emerging from a long-lasting depolarization, and were also obtained from fast spiking neurons. They were morphologically recovered to be multipolar cells with sparsely spiny dendrites and local axonal networks, suggesting that they are inhibitory interneurons. The multipolar neurons displaying bursts of attenuated spikes may mediate the recurrent inhibition of pyramidal tract cells.  (+info)

Sodium requirement of adult cats for maintenance based on plasma aldosterone concentration. (5/12744)

The sodium requirement of adult cats for maintenance was determined using a randomized block design of eight dietary sodium treatments (0.1, 0.4, 0.5, 0.66, 0.8, 1.2, 1.6 or 2.0 g Na/kg in a casein-lactalbumin-based purified diet) administered for periods of 4 wk. A total of 35 adult specific-pathogen-free domestic shorthaired cats (26 males and 9 females, 1.5-3 y of age) was given an equilibration diet (2 g Na/kg) for 14 d before assignment (or reassignment) to the treatments. A total of 12 cats (8 males, 4 females) was randomly assigned to the lowest six levels of sodium, and four cats to the highest two sodium levels. Cats consuming the diet containing 0.1 g Na/kg had significantly elevated aldosterone concentration in plasma, and packed cell volume. In addition, these cats exhibited anorexia, body weight loss, reduced urinary specific gravity and sodium excretion, and had a negative sodium balance. However, adult cats did not develop polydypsia and polyuria reported in sodium-deficient kittens. Cats given the diet containing 0.66 g Na/kg did not have an increased packed cell volume, but aldosterone concentration in the plasma was significantly elevated. However, cats given diets containing >/=0.8 g Na/kg had plasma aldosterone concentrations +info)

Serotypes and virulence factors of Escherichia coli strains isolated from dogs and cats. (6/12744)

E. coli strains isolated from urine of dogs and cats with urinary tract infections (UTI) and from feces of healthy one's were serotyped, and the serotypes were correlated with uropathogenic virulence factors. The most prevalent O-serotypes, O4 and O6, were isolated from dogs and cats with UTI. In contrast, O11 and O102 strains were the most frequently found from feces of healthy dogs and cats. Most of type O4 and O6 strains possessed such virulence factors as pil, pap, sfa, hly, and cnf1, while most type O11 and O102 strains pil only or pil and aer. All strains of type O75 possessed afaI and aer. K1 antigen was negative in all strains obtained from UTI.  (+info)

The prevalence of Balantidium coli infection in fifty-six mammalian species. (7/12744)

A total of 375 fecal samples of 56 mammalian species belonging to 17 families of 4 orders were examined for the detection of Balantidium coli from December 1994 to August 1995. As a result, B. coli was found from 6 species belonging to 4 families of 2 orders (Primates and Artiodactyla) of host animals examined. White-handed gibbon (Hylobates lar), squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciurea) and Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata) were new hosts for B. coli. All the wild boar (Sus scrofa) and chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) examined were positive. The highest number of B. coli was obtained from a chimpanzee (1,230/g feces). No B. coli was detected from the animals of orders Rodentia and Carnivora including dogs and cats. The rarity of B. coli infection in breeding animals in Japan. suggests that there is no serious problem in controlling infections.  (+info)

The cat lung strip as an in vitro preparation of peripheral airways: a comparison of beta-adrenoceptor agonists, autacoids and anaphylactic challenge on the lung strip and trachea. (8/12744)

1 A new in vitro preparation, the isolated lung strip of the cat, is described for investigating the direct effect of drugs on the smooth muscle of the peripheral airways of the lung. The preparation comprises a thin strip of lung parenchyma which can be mounted in a conventional organ bath for isometric tension recording. Its pharmacological responses have been characterized and compared with the isolated tracheal preparation of the cat. 2 The lung strip exhibited an intrinsic tone which was relaxed by catecholamines, aminophylline and flufenamate. It was contracted strongly by histamine, prostaglandin F2alpha, acetylcholine, compound 48/80, potassium depolarizing solution and alternating current field stimulation. In contrast, the cat trachea was unresponsive to histamine and prostaglandin F2alpha and did not exhibit an intrinsic tone. 3 (-)-Isoprenaline and (-)-adrenaline were much more potent in relaxing the lung strip than the trachea. The potency order of relaxation responses to isoprenaline, adrenaline and (+/-)-noradrenaline in the lung strip was isoprenaline greater than adrenaline greater than noradrenaline but in the trachea was isoprenaline greater than noradrenaline greater than or equal to adrenaline. 4 beta2-Adrenoceptor selective agonists salbutamol and terbutaline were more potent in the lung strip than the trachea, suggesting beta2-adrenoceptors predominated in the lung strip. Propranolol was equipotent in inhibiting isoprenaline relexations of the lung strip and trachea, whereas practolol was much less effective in inhibiting lung strip than trachea, further supporting a predominance of beta2-adrenoceptors in lung strip and beta1-adrenoceptors in trachea. 5 Strong Schultz-Dale type contractions were elicited in both lung strips and trachea by Ascaris lumbricoides antigen in actively sensitized cats. The initial phase of the contractile response of the lung strip following challenge was shown to be due to histamine release and was absent in the trachea. The delayed phase of the contraction which took several minutes to develop in both the mepyramine-treated lung strip and trachea was not due to prostaglandins E1, F2alpha or bradykinin, the probable mediator being slow reacting substance of anaphylaxis (SRS-A). 6 It is concluded that the isolated lung strip of the cat is useful as an in vitro model for investigating the effect of drugs on the smooth muscle of the peripheral airways of the lungs.  (+info)

A cat is a small mammal that can be kept in a house because its not considered as a wild animal. The cat is either a house cat, feral cat, or a farm cat. The cats require care and protection as a living being, and there is a variety of products for them in the market to take care of home pet cats. You can consider choosing antihistamine for cat allergy for your cat. If you are considering to keep cats at your home. The cats usually live from 2 to 16 years of their lives, and the average of their age is 5,6 years. The most friendly cat breeds for any family to keep are the Cornish rex, Abyssinian cat, exotic shorthair, Himalayan cat, ragdoll cat, Maine coon, Manx cat. If we talk about all the cat breeds then there is a huge number of cat breeds in the world in which the common, well-known cats are; the Abyssinian cat, American bobtail, curl cut, American shorthair cat, wirehair cat, Balinese Javanese, Bengal cat, Birman cat, Bombay cat, British shorthair cat, Burmese cat, Chartreux cat, devon ...
BACKGROUND: Sensitisation to cat allergen (Fel d 1) is an important risk factor for asthma in the UK. A study was undertaken to investigate the distribution of cat allergen in British homes, the aerodynamic characteristics and particle size distribution of airborne Fel d 1, and the method of removing it. METHODS: Dust was collected from 50 homes with a cat and from 50 homes without a cat, and airborne levels of Fel d 1 were measured in 50 homes with a cat and 75 homes without a cat. Particle size distribution was determined using an Andersen sampler (8 hours/day) in 10 homes with cats. This was repeated on five separate days in a house with four cats, and then one, two, four, seven, and 14 days after the cats were removed from the living room area. The effect of high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) cleaner on airborne levels of Fel d 1 was investigated in seven homes with cats. Samples were collected on two separate days from two rooms of each house concurrently, one of which contained the ...
A link between lipid metabolism and disease has been recognized in cats. Since hepatic lipidosis is a frequent disorder in cats, the aim of the current study was to evaluate liver and plasma lipid dimorphism in healthy cats and the effects of gonadectomy on lipid profiling. From six female and six male cats plasma and liver lipid profiles before and after spaying/neutering were assessed and compared to five cats (three neutered male and two spayed female) diagnosed with hepatic lipidosis. Intact female cats had a significantly lower level of plasma triacylglycerides (TAG) and a higher liver level of the long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid arachidonic acid (AA) compared to their neutered state. Both male and female cats with lipidosis had a higher liver, but not plasma TAG level and an increased level of plasma and liver sphingomyelin compared to the healthy cats. Although lipid dimorphism in healthy cats resembles that of other species, intact female cats show differences in
By Alan. I could do with some advice please, I have a female cat 11 months old, when she was about 5 months old she went to the Vet for a blood test prior to having her spayed, the test came back with a liver infection which was then treated.. After finishing her treatment I decided to wait for her first season to come and go before going back to the Vet for the operation as the Vet didnt want to operate on a cat in season and I thought she must be about due (I have never had a female cat before), in short I am still waiting.. I have seen no signs of her coming into season yet, my friend has a female cat and I know how they act in season. I dont really want to put her through an operation if she doesnt have seasons for some reason. Can they be so mild that I am missing them? She is an indoor cat and I am with her pretty much 24/7. She has no contact with other cats, nor will she. ...

On the other hand, the health of outdoor cats is threatened by contagious diseases such as feline leukemia, feline immunodeficiency virus, feline infectious peritonitis and rabies.. Feline immunodeficiency virus, or feline AIDS, for example, is a fatal disease that is carried by up to 14 percent of the cat population. It is transmitted from cat to cat by blood and saliva. This happens primarily through biting so outdoor and male cats that fight with other cats are at greatest risk. Parasites such as fleas, ticks and worms most commonly attack outdoor cats. If you allow your cat to go in and out at will, he will carry these parasites back into your home. Outdoor cats are more likely to contract diseases such as toxoplasmosis, ringworm and roundworms, all of which are zoonotic meaning they can be transmitted to people.. Outdoor cats may be attacked by wildlife or free-roaming domestic animals. As unpleasant as it is to think about, they may succumb to traffic accidents, pet-theft, poison, ...
There is no way to know for certain, by some experts estimate that the feral cat population in North America may equal or even exceed that of the owned cat population. Feral cats are not socialized to humans and avoid contact with people whenever possible. In contrast, stray cats are often those cats that have left a home or have been abandoned by their owners. These strays may have been socialized to humans at one time and will often approach people and may even allow petting. All cats, feral, stray and owned cats that simply roam the neighborhood are all members of the domestic species, Felis catus.. Traditionally, feral and stray cats are trapped whenever possible and then are taken to local animal shelters. Once at a shelter, if they are socialized to humans and have a calm disposition, some cats may be adopted out. However, the vast majority of these feral cats may be harboring diseases, such as Feline Leukemia, or they are totally wild and cannot be adopted out. These cats will often ...
Recent research has suggested that cat ownership might contribute to some mental disorders, because cats are the primary host of the common parasite Toxoplasma Gondii (T. Gondii), itself linked to mental health problems such as schizophrenia. However, the new study, published in Psychological Medicine, suggests that cat ownership in pregnancy and childhood does not play a role in developing psychotic symptoms during adolescence. The study looked at nearly 5000 people born in 1991 or 1992 who were followed-up until the age of 18. The researchers had data on whether the household had cats while the mother was pregnant and when the children were growing up.. The message for cat owners is clear: there is no evidence that cats pose a risk to childrens mental health, says lead author Dr Francesca Solmi (UCL Psychiatry). In our study, initial unadjusted analyses suggested a small link between cat ownership and psychotic symptoms at age 13, but this turned out to be due to other factors. Once we ...
A show cat (also known as a purebred cat or pedigreed cat) is one that has been judged to be close to the physical ideal for its breed standard at a cat show. Not all pedigreed cats are show cats, many are just pets but the ones with the best conformation and personality are often shown in associations such as the CFA and TICA in the US, the GCCF in the UK or the FiFe in the rest of Europe. Uncommonly, a prize-winning pedigreed show cat can be worth thousands of dollars but most are loved pets. In order to compare examples of breeds and improve stock, cat shows are held where judges evaluate the cats according to a breed standard. Pedigreed cats are often identified with microchip implants. A common conception is that all pedigreed cats are less healthy than random-bred cats due to inbreeding. The Ascent of Cat Breeds: Genetic Evaluations of Breeds and Worldwide Random-bred Populations by Lipinski et al. showed that pedigreed cats are more inbred than random bred cats. For some breeds such as ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Estrogen attenuates the exercise pressor reflex in female cats. AU - Schmitt, Petra M.. AU - Kaufman, Marc P. PY - 2003/10/1. Y1 - 2003/10/1. N2 - In humans, the pressor and muscle sympathetic nerve responses to static exercise are less in women than in men. The difference has been attributed to the effect of estrogen on the exercise pressor reflex. Estrogen receptors are abundant in areas of the dorsal horn receiving input from group III and IV muscle afferents, which comprise the sensory limb of the exercise pressor reflex arc. These findings prompted us to investigate the effect of estrogen on the spinal pathway of the exercise pressor reflex arc. Previously, we found that the threshold concentration of 17β-estradiol needed to attenuate the exercise pressor reflex in male decerebrate cats was 10 μg/ml (Schmitt PM and Kaufman MP. J Appl Physiol 94: 1431-1436, 2003). The threshold concentration for female cats, however, is not known. Consequently, we applied 17β-estradiol to ...
An adult cat needs to consume five to eight percent of its body weight in food per day and females with kittens require 20%. Cats can have two litters a year, averaging four kittens a litter. Kittens are weaned at 8 weeks, become sexually mature at approximately 6-8 months and can produce a litter during the same year of their birth.. An unspayed cat is a menace in our community, with male cats spraying and females producing many young. One cat and its offspring can produce 2905 kittens at 7 years and 49,000 at 10 years. When you consider the implications of the uncontrolled exponential growth of a cat population, it is quite frightening. Uncontrolled domestic cat populations do contribute to increasing the feral cat population and cats are having a huge impact on native animals, reptiles and birds.. Many cat owners choose to allow their cats to wander well beyond their property boundaries. Whilst out and about, their cats are at risk of experiencing car accidents, injuries in fights with other ...

There is no way to know for certain, by some experts estimate that the feral cat population in North America may equal or even exceed that of the owned cat population. Feral cats are not socialized to humans and avoid contact with people whenever possible. In contrast, stray cats are often those cats that have left a home or have been abandoned by their owners. These strays may have been socialized to humans at one time and will often approach people and may even allow petting. All cats, feral, stray and owned cats that simply roam the neighborhood are all members of the domestic species, Felis catus.. Traditionally, feral and stray cats are trapped whenever possible and then are taken to local animal shelters. Once at a shelter, if they are socialized to humans and have a calm disposition, some cats may be adopted out. However, the vast majority of these feral cats may be harboring diseases, such as Feline Leukemia, or they are totally wild and cannot be adopted out. These cats will often ...

Because their social organization is somewhat flexible, some cats are relatively tolerant of sharing their house and territory with multiple cats. Its not uncommon for a cat to tolerate some cats, but not get along with others in the house. However, the more cats sharing the same territory, the more likely it is that some of your cats will begin fighting with each other.. When you introduce cats to each other, one of them may send play signals which can be misinterpreted by the other cat. If those signals are interpreted as aggression by one of the cats, then you should handle the situation as aggressive.. The factors that determine how well cats will get along together are not fully understood. Cats that are well-socialized (they had pleasant experiences with other cats during kittenhood) will likely be more sociable than those that havent been around many other cats. On the other hand, street cats that are in the habit of fighting with other cats in order to defend their territory and food ...
However, some cats dont like it or at best tolerate it. If a cat tolerates it but does not necessarily like it he or she will become stressed. The cat who is less stressed is the one who is happy to let his buddy take the petting away from him/her.. The key is to do what pleases your cat and you equally rather than assuming your cat likes petting and loving.. I have always been of the opinion that stroking should be limited in duration and strength. Cats do adapt well, though - they get used our likes and dislikes too.. Two examples of body language for me that indicate that my cat is unsure about my stroking, touching or holding him. He might (a) shake his head after the stroking or (b) lick his nose (displacement behaviour indicating uncertainty).. Note: some newspapers are saying you should not stroke your cat because it stresses your cat. This is wrong and misses the point. It is a far more subtle situation than that. ...
I have made some homework. Yes, cats are not perfect and may show some not-so-bright side. No, accidental scrach on furniture or the fact this nice pot flew down because cat accidentaly dropped it, is not a problem. No, I wont declaw cat, I wont beat or otherwise torture her.

Two siblings, a 6-month-old sexually intact male weighing 2.5 kg (cat 1) and a sexually intact female (cat 2) British Shorthair cat weighing 2.3 kg, were examined because of a 3-week history of polyuria, lethargy and laboured breathing. One year previously, another sibling (cat 3) had been presented because of similar, yet more severe, clinical signs at the age of 5 months. Physical examination revealed lethargy, dehydration and polypnoea with slightly increased inspiratory effort. Diagnostic investigation revealed severe hypercalcaemia (cats 1-3), renal azotaemia (cats 1 and 3) and a radiologically generalised miliary interstitial pattern of the lungs (cats 1-3) attributable to hypervitaminosis D caused by ingestion of commercial cat food. Cat 3 was euthanased. Cats 1 and 2 were treated with isotonic saline solution (180 ml/kg IV daily), sucralfate (30 mg/kg PO q12h), terbutaline (only cat 1: 0.1 mg/kg SC q4h), furosemide (1.5 mg/kg IV q8h) and tapering doses of prednisolone. Cat 2 was normal ...
Many Siamese once had kinks in their tails, though this has been mostly bred out of modern Siamese cats. There are a couple of legends to explain the kinked tail. The first involves the disappearance of a valuable goblet from a Buddhist temple. Two Siamese cats were sent to find it. When they had located the goblet, the male cat went back to let the priests know that the mission had been successful, while the female remained to guard the goblet. She wound her tail around the stem to ensure that the goblet did not go missing again, and as a result, her tail became permanently kinked.. A second legend has it that a Siamese princess placed her rings on her cats tail for safekeeping. When the cat slept, the rings fell from her tail and were lost. The princess tied a knot in the cats tail to prevent future losses, creating a kink in the tail that appeared in all Siamese cats from that day forward.. Siamese Cat Personality. Siamese are believed to be the most intelligent and inquisitive of all cat ...

Savannah cat size comparison to house cat. This taller body type gives the illusion of more weight.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Facilitation by estrogen of sexual reflexes in female cats. AU - Hart, Benjamin. PY - 1971/1/1. Y1 - 1971/1/1. N2 - Nine adult, ovariectomized, female cats administered an exogenous estrogen displayed sexual responses, including the spinal reflexes of lateral tail deviation and treading of the back legs with sexually active male cats. Some of the animals displayed the same reflexes to perineal stimulation by the experimenter. A spinal transection was performed and 60 days later, when neurological spinal shock had subsided and strength of somatic reflexes had stabilized for several weeks, animals were tested for sexual reflexes before and after estrogen administration. Two spinal animals displayed partial sexual reflexes before the estrogen administration. Following estrogen administration facilitation of tail deviation and treading occurred in these two as well as five of the other 7 animals. These and other observations suggest that the display of these sexual reflexes in intact ...

The Persian cat (Persian: گربهٔ ایرانی ‎, romanized: Gorbe-ye irāni ‚Iranian cat) is a long-haired breed of cat characterized by its round face and short muzzle. Allergies, flea attack,s and hormone imbalance can be a possible reason behind hair loss in clumps in a Persian cat. Viral Respiratory Infections. Environmental allergies, like pollen or mildew, are much more common in cats than allergies caused by food. These will probably be similar to those you may have witnessed in humans with an allergy. Also, allergies tend to be more common among outdoor cats because they are exposed to a wider range of potential allergens, especially from plants and organic matter. If a cat has an allergy, they will usually show quite obvious allergic symptoms. Traditional Persians do not have as short a face as ...

Think of the different cats you have met in your life. Some have been extra friendly, some nervous or fearful, some bold, some even perhaps have behaved aggressively. The cats we come across in our lives can vary from pet cats to community cats to wild living or feral cats. How they have come to be those cats depends on their parents, where they were born, how much handling they have had and what experiences they had both at an early age and later in life. All of these things can have a profound effect.. A pet cat could be defined as one thats happy to be around people and to interact with them - just what most of us want. However, at the other end of the spectrum is the feral cat, an amazing creature which, although it looks exactly the same as a pet cat and is of the same species, can behave very differently - in fact more like a cat belonging to a wild species (more of this later) and not happy in a home.. Cats have a wide range of personalities. How confident or fearful a cat is in ...
A stray is a cat who has been abandoned or who has strayed from home and become lost. Stray cats can usually be re-socialized and adopted. A feral cat is an unsocialized cat.. Either he was born outside and never lived with humans, or he is a house cat who has strayed from home and over time has thrown off the effects of domestication and reverted to a wild state. Feral cats should not be taken to local shelters to be adopted.. Feral cats are not pet cats, and they will be killed at most shelters. Because they’re unadoptable, they sometimes don’t even make it to the shelter, but are killed in the animal control truck. Even no-kill shelters are not able to place feral cats in homes. Feral kittens can be adopted.. Feral kittens can often be tamed and placed in homes, but they must be socialized in their first weeks of life. This is a critical window and if they aren’t handled in time, they will remain feral and therefore unadoptable. Feral cats have about the same lifespan as ...

The cat (Felis catus) is a small carnivorous mammal. It is the only domesticated species in the family Felidae and often referred to as the domestic cat to distinguish it from wild members of the family. The cat is either a house cat or farm cat which are pets, or a feral cat, freely ranging and avoiding human contact. A house cat is valued by humans for companionship and for its ability to hunt rodents. About 60 cat breeds are recognized by various cat registries. Cats are similar in anatomy to the other felid species, with a strong flexible body, quick reflexes, sharp teeth and retractable claws adapted to killing small prey. They are predators who are most active at dawn and dusk (crepuscular). Cats can hear sounds too faint or too high in frequency for human ears, such as those made by mice and other small animals. Compared to humans, they see better in the dark (they see in near total darkness) and have a better sense of smell, but poorer color vision. Cats, despite being solitary hunters, ...
Feline Enteritis (or Parvovirus) causes the same fever, loss of appetite, and vomiting & bloody diarrhoea in cats and is much worse in kittens. Without intensive treatment of intravenous fluids and antibiotics, affected cats often rapidly die from dehydration and secondary bacterial infection. The disease is very contagious and affected cats can continue to shed the virus for at least six weeks after infection. Even indoor cats are at risk as the virus can be carried on clothing and footwear. Pregnant cats can transmit the virus to their unborn kittens causing brain damage.. I have not seen Parvovirus in cats since my early years working as a vet because there is has been an excellent vaccine available for many years which will effectively prevent this disease. It is part of the usual kitten and cat vaccination program available at veterinary clinics. The recent outbreak has, as far as we know, been confined to Melbourne, with a small number of cases in Werribee, but that is too close to Geelong ...
Cats meowing for food youtube. Stick to a feeding routine. Cats often meow to beg for food. If you respond to the noise, the cat learns that this is effective. Feed the cat on a strict schedule instead of waiting for a vocal reminder. Most healthy adult cats do fine with one or two meals per day, but may be happier with more frequent, smaller meals. Kittens under six months old need at least three meals a day. There are health issues that can prompt excess meowing. Deaf cats, old cats suffering from feline Alzheimers, stressed cats suffering from separation anxiety, and those with thyroid, heart or kidney issues may yowl.

The cat righting reflex is a cats natural ability to turn itself around as it falls so it will land on its feet. This righting reflex starts to happen at 3-4 weeks of age. The cat has entirely learned how to do this by 6-7 weeks.[1] Cats are able to do this because they have a flexible backbone and a clavicle that does not move. The minimum height needed for this to happen safely in most cats is about 12 inches. Cats without a tail can also do this. This is because a cat mostly moves its hind legs and does not use much angular momentum to set itself up for landing. So a tail is not really needed for this skill.[2] Using this righting reflex, cats can often land without injury. But, this is not always true, since cats can still break bones or die from extreme falls. In a 1987 study, written in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 132 cats were looked at after having fallen from buildings. The injuries per cat were more, depending on the height fallen; up to seven stories ...

Some cat organizations also recognize exotic point colours such as caramel and apricot.. Colourpoint Shorthair Cat History. The Colourpoint Shorthair was developed by British and American breeders in the 1940s by outcrossing purebred Siamese cats with Abyssinians, American Shorthairs, and domestic shorthairs to introduce a broader spectrum of patterns and colours.. The breed gained official recognition from the Cat Fanciers Association in 1964.

The British Governing Council of the Cat Fancy lists the Colourpoint Shorthair as a Siamese, though with its own breed classification.. Colourpoint Shorthair Personality.

Objective: Sarcomas are neoplasms of mesenchymal (stem cell) origin and are rare skin diseases of cats and may occur anywhere on the cat body.The main etiologies of soft tissue sarcomas are Feline sarcoma virus induced sarcomas, vaccine site sarcomas, trauma, inflammation and radiation. Methods: In March 2014, a three years old male domestic shorthair cat were referred to a private veterinary clinic in Tehran, Iran with a tumor-like bump on the plantar surface of his left pelvic limb. As a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure, surgical excision was recommended.Results: It seems that, due to the location of the fibrosarcoma in this cat it was a result of a prior wound or foreign body insertion to plantar surface of the affected limb. The development of a sarcoma at a site of previous trauma or inflammation has been documented in animals and people, although rarely.

It is believed that the history of the American Shorthair cat breed begins on the ships that crossed the Atlantic Ocean from Europe to America. The ships cats would have been on board to kill any vermin on the ship but it is likely that some of these cats stayed in America after making the crossing. These cats had to be strong and tough to survive such a voyage and provided great breeding stock from which the American Shorthair developed. |/p| |p|In America these cats were originally called Domestic Shorthairs and were shown at cat exhibitions in the early 1900s. As more breeds of short hair cats reached America the Domestic Shorthair found itself in the hands of dedicated breeders who developed the breed to the specific type we know today. In 1966 it was renamed the American Shorthair and began to gain recognition in the show ring.|/p| |p|The breed is now recognised by TICA (The International Cat Association) and must follow a strict breed standard.

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) is a virus found around the world that is passed by cat-to-cat contact through blood and nursing. Fortunately, FIV is not terribly contagious and is rarely spread through casual (not aggressive) contact. Cats that go outdoors are at the highest risk of contracting FIV because cats tend to scuffle and the disease is commonly passed by a bite from an infected cat. If a cat does get FIV it does not usually show symptoms for many years. As the disease progresses it suppresses the immune system and cats easily contract secondary infections. Symptoms include lusterless coat condition, enlarged lymph nodes, persistent infections and gradual weight loss. Your vet can test for FIV using a simple in-house blood test. It is good practice to test all new cats before introducing them to your household if you already have other cats. FIV positive cats can live happily for many years when provided with a good diet and they are protected from secondary infections.. Talk to ...

Generally speaking, as long as the cats personality is not particularly conflicting, it is OK to be together.. The key is that the host should not be biased, at least not to let any of them feel that the host is biased, whether it is diet or sleep or play or the hosts attitude.

Can cat vitamins really help prevent FeLV and FIV in cats? Feline Leukemia Virus or FeLV is contagious and is passed by direct cat-to- cat contact, such as in mutual grooming or bite wounds. Not all cats who contact it die from the disease. Some fight it off and recover and some become carriers of the virus. FeLV suppresses a cats immune system, allowing other diseases to make the cat extremely sick. It can also cause lymphatic cancer. A small number of cats contract FeLV and never get sick, living a normal life span. This is because their immune system fights off the active infection. A good vitamin for cats containing vitamins, minerals and super-foods will keep your cats immune system in tip-top shape. Infection is much less likely to occur when the immune system is supported and functioning well.. It is so very vital for a cats health that he gets daily vitamins.

On Naxos, wall lizard densities were less than half as great at sites with many cats as sites with few cats while these sites were similar in ecological factors that are thought to be important ecological determinants of lizard density: understory coverage, understory biomass, canopy cover, arthropod biomass and wall height. We believe that the underlying reason is that cats are fed from the villagers and thus avoid wandering far away from the human settlements. Therefore, our results indicate heavy predation by cats and strong current selection by cats on the anti-predator defences of wall lizards.. The effect of cats was localized in our study, because cats were found almost exclusively around human habitations. Although feral cats can have large home ranges (130 ha for females and 497 ha for males) on islands isolated from human settlement [22], home ranges are usually much smaller for cats feeding from human settlements (10 ha for females and 15 ha for males) [23]. Lizards constitute only a ...
A novel swine-origin H1N1 influenza A virus has been identified as the cause of the 2009 influenza pandemic in humans. Since then, infections with the pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza virus have been documented in a number of animal species. The first known cases of lethal respiratory disease associated with pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza virus infection in house pets occurred in domestic cats in Oregon. A 10-year-old neutered domestic shorthair and an 8-year-old spayed domestic shorthair died shortly after developing severe respiratory disease. Grossly, lung lobes of both cats were diffusely firm and incompletely collapsed. Histologically, moderate to severe necrotizing to pyonecrotizing bronchointerstitial pneumonia was accompanied by serofibrinous exudation and hyaline membranes in the alveolar spaces. Influenza A virus was isolated from nasal secretions of the male cat and from lung homogenate of the female cat. Both isolates were confirmed as pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza virus by real-time ...
The Sphynx was not the first hairless domestic cat. Some were seen in other places around the world for at least 90 years.[2] The Sphynx breed began in 1966, in Toronto, when a hairless kitten, named Prune, was born to a black and white shorthair cat, named Elizabeth, in Ontario, Canada. The kitten was mated with its mother, so one more naked kitten was born. Along with a few naked kittens found later, the hairless breed began.[3] A natural birth of a Sphynx cat happened on a Minnesota farm. The owners found hairless kittens in several litters of their domestic shorthair barn cats in the mid-1970s. Two hairless female kittens born in 1975 and 1976, named Epidermis and Dermis, were also an important part of developing the breed. More hairless cats were found in Texas, Arkansas, and Minnesota. So, the modern Sphynx breed began with the Canadian cats and the Minnesota cats. [3] The first breeders did not know much about cat genetics and they had some problems. The gene pool was small and many ...
Paws and Whiskers Cat Shelter has temporarily suspended adoptions and intakes of cats and kittens after persistent cases of Feline Calicivirus - commonly known as Calici.

WEDNESDAY, May 13, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- With sporadic reports of tigers and housecats picking up the new coronavirus from nearby humans, a new trial gives more details on whether cats can pass the virus to each other.. The answer: Yes, and quite easily, according to the new trial involving six felines.. But there was good news, too: Even though cats can transmit the new SARS-CoV-2 virus to other felines, none of the kitties infected in the new study appeared to get sick.. Still, the team of American and Japanese researchers said that domestic cats may be a silent intermediate host of SARS-CoV-2, because infected cats may not show any appreciable symptoms that might be recognized by their owners.. So far, however, theres been no evidence that cats can pass the virus to humans -- only evidence that humans might pass the virus to a pet cat.. In the study, a team led by Yoshihiro Kawaoka, of the University of Tokyo, first deliberately infected (via inoculation) three domestic cats with the ...

The biggest problem is stray cats, not dogs. The problem with dogs is abandonment. Female cats, however, multiply at much faster rates - a female cat can get pregnant as young as four or five months old, and can give birth two to three times per year, Ayiomamitis said.. The only way to tackle the chronic overpopulation of cats, he said, was for the government to give €100,000 for at least five years in a row. He added that funds should be distributed according to the cat population of each district.. But taking into account the history of state funding for this cause, he said, to us this is empty promises. We thank them, and we are looking forward to receiving it if we finally get it.. There has been a surge in cat numbers this year he said.. We had many births, many abandonments which also led to increase of a disease which killed many kittens.. For Dawn Foote, a volunteer at the Tala Monastery Cats sanctuary in Paphos, if the money is managed correctly, it may have a very small ...

Young cats usually learn to use their cat flaps very quickly. Older cats may find them confusing at first and need some training to use them. When you first fit the cat flap, prop the flap permanently open and entice your cat to go through. Placing a bowl of her favourite food on the other side may do the trick! Once your cat is happy to go through the open hole, prop the flap slightly less open. Gradually lower the flap a bit at a time until eventually your cat is starting to push the flap just a little to get at her treat. Use plenty of praise as she begins to work the device on her own. If your cat is litter trained moving her litter tray outside the cat flap may make her go through once she is desperate. Sometimes a catnip spray may help to attract your cat to the other side of the cat flap ...

Fear is the number one reason for aggression, and handling issues are very common. Many cats are naturally reluctant to being picked up. They often dont like having their bodies touched or manipulated in certain places or in certain ways. If cats are not taught early on to accept and enjoy handling, they may scratch, hiss, or bite in this context. It is always best to give your cat time to approach the stranger, rather than reaching out or touching a fearful cat, especially when they are hiding.. Know your cat and set them up for success. Teach your guests about the body language of your cat.. Irritated, overstimulated: Leave the cat alone if you see dilated pupils, turned-back ears or a twitching or waving tail. These are signs that your cat is overstimulated. If these signs are ignored, your cat may quickly escalate to growling, starching, or even biting.. In some cases, it may look like play. However, because your cat is overstimulated, it can quickly turn to aggression and results in biting ...

Among evaluated animals, Y. pestis was isolated from six of 12 cats; five of the six were from areas in southwestern Idaho where dead ground squirrels with confirmed Y. pestis had been reported in May 2016, and one was from from eastern Idaho. Among these six cats, specimen collection occurred during May 31-July 12, 2016; cats ranged in age from 10 months to 14.5 years (median = 4 years), four (67%) were male, five (83%) resided both indoors and outdoors, and one resided outdoor only. All six cats were domestic shorthair breed and had been neutered or spayed. Fever and lymphadenopathy (n = 4, 67%) were the most commonly reported signs of illness. None of the cats had known pulmonary involvement. Three of the six cats were treated with appropriate antibiotics (1); of these, two survived and one was euthanatized. The three other cats had died or had been euthanatized. All six cats reportedly had contact with ground squirrels and other wild rodents or rabbits before becoming ill; one had flea ...

Cat massage is a practice used by physiotherapists and pet owners to maintain healthy circulatory systems and joints in felines. Touching, petting, and stroking a cat can stimulate the release of chemicals called cytokines, which in turn signal the brain to release natural painkilling chemicals called endorphins. Cats may show their pleasure during massage by purring and gently kneading their paws.[citation needed] Massage therapy may have similar benefits for cats as it has for humans, including preventative measures and as a solution for pain the pet might be enduring. Cat massage may be used to calm an anxious animal. Cat massages may also lower the blood pressure of the owner, acting as a relaxation technique for both parties.[citation needed] Cat massage is useful in breeding familiarity and intimacy between the owner and a feline. Massaging the cat may also allow the owner to look for abnormalities that might appear on the cats skin and in finding areas of tenderness or swelling that ...

My cat has started so breath really shallow more rapid breaths rather than his normal breathing rate and depth. The only thing I can think of that has occurred in the last couple of hours is that my fiancé fed him along with our other two male cats some beef tendon which she has done before.

Many studies have shown that laboratory rodents that have never been exposed to a live cat (or any cat vestiges), demonstrate strong fear responses when exposed to cat odor [1-13]. Pharmacological studies that use responses of rodents to cat odor as a model of human anxiety have produced controversial results. Benzodiazepine drugs, which are effective against generalized anxiety disorder in humans [14] and in classical animal models of anxiety (e.g. elevated plus-maze, black/white box, open-field) [6, 8-10, 15-19], can sometimes modulate the defensive responses of rodents to cat odor [2-4, 8, 9]. In other studies, however, benzodiazepines did not change the defensive behavior of rats [6, 10] or mice [1, 10] exposed to cat odor. Zangrossi and File [11] reported that chlordiazepoxide reduced anxiety evaluated in the social interaction and elevated plus-maze tests after exposure to cat odor, but it had only a limited effect on the direct responses of rats exposed to cat odor. These findings suggest ...
Cones are never fun. Most cats hate the feeling of the cone around their neck and theres usually an adjustment period. During the first few hours, many cats have difficulty even walking around with the cone. Some cats walk backward while others walk into walls. Some cats refuse to walk at all and resort to crawling or dragging themselves across the floor. Be patient and give Kitty time to adjust to the new situation.. Do monitor your cats behavior closely during the first few hours. Make sure that the cone is effective in keeping your cat from licking, chewing or scratching at the problem area. Cats can even hurt themselves if they try to use a hard plastic cone to scratch against. Some cats manage to wriggle their way out of the cone and others may get stuck in narrow places or under a bed so keep an eye on Kitty and block problem areas ahead of time.. Even if your cat is used to going outside by herself, she needs to stay inside for as long as shes wearing a cone. A cats vision and hearing ...
If you think your cat has separation anxiety, see a vet. Your vet will first want to complete a thorough physical examination to make sure your cats symptoms arent the result of an underlying medical condition. If your vet decides that your cat is physically healthy, a veterinary behaviorist can help you treat your cats anxiety and behavioral issues. Your vet may suggest administering anti-anxiety drugs, such a Prozac, for a short time during the initial phase of your cats treatment. You can help mitigate your cats anxiety by making your absence less stressful. Ignore your cat for at least 15 minutes before leaving your home and before coming back. Distract your cat from your going, coming and absence by scattering interesting toys and treats around the house for him to find..

Although a small amount of bleeding may occur, any excessive bleeding should be reported to the vet. Cats may scratch and break open a scab which could result in bleeding. If this happens, hold a paper towel to the wound to apply pressure. If bleeding doesnt stop, call the vet. Your cats feet should not appear swollen or puffy. Make sure your pet attempts to walk. If your cat is not walking after a day or so, there may be a problem. If you notice any changes in appetite or behavior, this could indicate that your cat is not feeling well. Watch closely for signs of infection, and call your vet if you have any apprehensions. Watch for psychological problems after declawing. Clawing and scratching is a natural instinct for cats.

Although declawing may keep the cat from scratching, cats are natural hunters and ...
Aggression is a common behavioral issue in cats and a symptom of an underlying problem. It always needs to be taken seriously. Aggressive behavior can be seen in cats of any breed, size, age, or gender. When cats display aggression when touched or petted, it can stem from many different motivations. The most common include: Fear/defense: A fearful cat may exhibit dilated pupils, ears turning back, or a twitching tail. In this situation, your cat may growl, hiss or swat at the person reaching, touching or petting.. Pain/discomfort: A painful cat may be uncomfortable when touched in certain areas of their body and respond aggressively.. Overstimulation: Aggression can occur as a normal response to being petted or handled in areas or ways your cat finds uncomfortable. It could also happen when the petting or handling have gone on for too long. Some cats exhibit overstimulation which leads to petting-induced aggression. Cats vary enormously as to the extent to which they like petting or handling, ...
