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)

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.

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 ...

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 ...
To be honest, I dont think the conclusion gleaned from this study is news to cat lovers. We know how to read cat body language. A good cat caretaker understands cat behaviour and knows the likes and dislikes of their cat.. The important concept that cats are individuals - and all cat lovers are aware of this - extends to whether or not the cat likes, dislikes or tolerates being stroked and petted. We love to pet our cat. It is part of the pleasures of living with a cat.. 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 ...
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. Yes, I know cat needs to play and if I do not play at daytime, cat may play at nigh - and I cannot complain. Yes, cat requires special food, not leftovers from table. Yes, cat may be hiding for a month after she arrives to home, and cat is not to be disturbed, she is adapting. Yes, cat is independent creature, she may not be willing to play when i want and I must be patient. No, cant must not follow me everywhere or enjoy every single step of mine, cat is not dog. No, I do not want to play lottery, like "pick a cat that matches your physical criteria and grow it up" - if its tabby and short-haired, take it, no matter anything else. Yes, i know cat may change after brought home, yet somehow I do not believe cats tend to ...
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 ...

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 ...

for the cat - try different positions - privacy helps) should work. Some cats might prefer a litter box without a cover. The litter must be cleaned daily at least and cleaned properly. Try different litters and bigger box in a quieter location. Try two litter boxes in different locations. Cats should not be disturbed when using the litter.. Cats are creatures of habit (we are too) as it is comforting for them. Cats use similar spots for certain activities (e.g. sleeping). Once the habit to use a litter box is formed things should tick along nicely.. As to emotional upset causing inappropriate elimination, a classic problem is separation anxiety. I recall a well known Persian cat rescue organiser saying that the best cat caretakers are over 55 years of age as they are around more..

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 ...

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 ...
Feline elimination problems (spraying or inappropriate elimination) are one of the most common behavioural problems seen in cats. Spraying (urine marking) refers to an action which relays a message to other cats about territory. Inappropriate elimination on the other hand refers to urinating or defecating on or in a place other than the litter box or outside in the garden, not related to the marking of territory.. Urine marking behaviour is normal in cats although unpleasant for the owner. Cats use the senses of sight, smell and hearing to communicate with each other. As cats are hunters, they tend to communicate over large distances, to not infringe on another cats territory. Some cats will vocalise to get their owners or other cats attention; such as when they want to be fed or let out or when they feel threatened. Cats which are close to each other will look at the other cats body posture or facial expression to establish what the mood of the other cat is. Facial expressions and body ...

Feline pneumonitis is caused by the organism Chlamydia psittaci. Signs of pneumonitis are similar to those of FVR and FCV.. Feline leukemia Virus ( FeLV ) - Feline Leukemia causes immunosuppression, major organ system degeneration and/or cancer. Signs of this disease are usually vague and include weight loss, decreased appetite, depression, vomiting and diarrhea. Cats can also get secondary infections because of the decreased immune system function. This virus is spread by casual contact between cats. This vaccination is recommended for cats that are outside unsupervised, cats that are in contact with outdoor cats and cats that live with FeLV positive cats.. Feline Infectious Peritonitis ( FIP ) - FIP can cause fluid congestion or aggressive organ destruction. The virus is spread in the feces and oronasal secretions. Unfortunately, this vaccination is not commonly recommended because it is not very effective.. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus ( FIV ) - Signs of FIV can be from direct viral effects ...
One of the easiest ways to determine if your cat is too fat is to run your hands over her ribs firmly. Can you feel them? If so, your cat is probably doing just fine. If you cant, your cat is at least overweight, if not obese. It might be time for a cat diet.. Additionally, theres always the "look test": chances are if a stranger were to glance at your kitty and think "wow, thats a chubby cat," hes packing too many pounds.. Of course, you could also just weigh your kitty. How much should a cat weigh? It depends on the breed, obviously, but the average cat weight is between 7 and 11 pounds. When you are dealing with such little weight, even an extra pound can have big effects on your cats health: The span between 11 and 12 pounds is equivalent to that between 150 and 163.5 pounds for a human. So get a cat scale and see if might be time for a cat weight loss regimen.. How much should a cat weigh? It depends on the breed, obviously, but the average cat weight is between 7 and 11 pounds.

Several surveys have been reported on the seroprevalence or B1 gene detection of T. gondii infection in stray cats in Korea [3-5,7,8]. In 1999, 13.1% (26/198) of stray cats captured from a southern area (around Jinju City) showed positive western blot patterns for T. gondii [3]. In 2008, of 174 stray cats captured from Gyeonggi Province, serum specific antibodies were positive in 14 cats (8.0%) by latex agglutination test, 28 cats (16.1%) by ELISA, and 23 cats (13.2%) by PCR detection of the B1 gene in blood samples [4]. However, in the same year, a strikingly high prevalence (47.2%) in blood of stray cats by nested-PCR was reported from Gyeonggi Province [5]. Subsequently, the seroprevalence of stray cats from Metropolitan Seoul was reported as 15.3% (11/72) by ELISA, with the B1 gene positive rate in blood of 30.6% (22/72) by nested PCR in 2010 [7]. In another survey, the seroprevalence of stray cats from Metropolitan Seoul was 15.8% (69/456) by ELISA, and the B1 gene positive rate in blood ...

Maxs House. Lymphosarcoma In Cats. Mary Ann Vonderhaar and Wallace B. Morrison. Lymphosarcoma is a neoplasm of malignant lymphocytes in solid organs such as lymph nodes, bone marrow, or visceral organs such as the liver and spleen. Lymphosarcoma is usually amenable to chemotherapy protocols that are within the capabilities of most veterinary practices.. LYMPHOSARCOMA IN CATS Hematopoietic tumors are the most frequently occurring tumors in domestic cats, and they account for about 33% of all feline tumors. Lymphosarcoma accounts for up to 90% of the hematopoietic tumors in cats, with an estimated incidence of 200 cases/100,000 cats at risk. No increased prevalence has been reported for any sex or breed of cat. The usual age of cats at diagnosis is between 2 and 6 years. In many cases, lymphosarcoma in cats follows infection with the feline leukemia virus (FeLV). FeLV is a very immunosuppressive retrovirus that has been linked to the development of lymphosarcoma in both FeLV test-positive and ...
For decades, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) positive cats basically faced two fates: euthanasia, or a lifetime without a forever home. Due in part to a lack of conclusive studies on the virus, and made all the worse by the stigma associated with other immunodeficiency viruses, the public had long been convinced that FIV+ cats could only live with other FIV+ cats, which made placing these cats into homes nearly impossible.. Fortunately, recent veterinary studies, a growing appreciation of special needs cats, and a new interest in addressing behavioral issues in felines have revealed that these cats can in fact live long, healthy lives in the company of FIV negative cats with no issue.. So heres everything you need to know if youre thinking about opening up your heart and home to one of these felines! (spoiler alert: they are awesome.). What is FIV?. FIV is a viral disease in the same class as HIV. It suppresses the immune system of the infected cats, causing an increased risk of ...
Therapeutic goals for otherwise healthy diabetic cats. The principle goals of treating diabetes in cats are to correct the major clinical signs of diabetes (weight loss, polydipsia / polyuria, and polyphagia or inappetence), and to prevent diabetic ketoacidosis. Additional goals are to minimize the risk of hypoglycaemia by appropriate dose adjustment of insulin or oral hypoglycaemic agents. Appropriate therapy of cats may also lead to diabetic remission, although currently it is not possible at diagnosis to predict which cats are more likely to go into remission. Treatment that is most effective in correcting hyperglycaemia is more likely to lead to remission by facilitating the recovery of the pancreatic cells from glucose toxicity.. Treatment modalities. Diet. General considerations. In cats, post-prandial hyperglycaemia is very prolonged (up to 18-24h) in cats fed typical cat foods. Therefore there does not seem any need to match the timing of the insulin dose to meals, which is important in ...

Cat Diversity and Domestication. Despite the fact that nearly 70 million cats inhabit US households (U.S. Pet Ownership & Demographics Sourcebook, AVMA, 2002), little is known about the origins of the domestic cat. Equally scarce is information regarding the origins of the various cat breeds and their relationship to each other. The cat was more recently domesticated than most other companion animals and livestock species, but no molecular studies have been focused on deciphering domestic feline origins. The popularity of cats in Egyptian societies has lead to the assumption that cats were domesticated in Africa. Archeological evidence and early writings, however, place domestic cats in Asia and Eastern Europe prior to the rise of the cat in the Egyptian Empire. Recently, intact remains of a cat were identified at a Neolithic human burial site in Cyprus, which was dated at approximately 9,000 years ago, 5,000 years prior to the rise of cats in Egyptian culture{1}. Our objectives are to determine ...

BACKGROUND Remission occurs in 10-50% of cats with diabetes mellitus (DM). It is assumed that intensive treatment improves β-cell function and increases remission rates. HYPOTHESIS Initial intravenous infusion of insulin that achieves tight glycemic control decreases subsequent insulin requirements and increases remission rate in diabetic cats. ANIMALS Thirty cats with newly diagnosed DM. METHODS Prospective study. Cats were randomly assigned to one of 2 groups. Cats in group 1 (n = 15) received intravenous infusion of insulin with the goal of maintaining blood glucose concentrations at 90-180 mg/dL, for 6 days. Cats in group 2 (n = 15) received subcutaneous injections of insulin glargine (cats ≤4 kg: 0.5-1.0 IU, q12h; ,4 kg 1.5-2.0 IU, q12h), for 6 days. Thereafter, all cats were treated with subcutaneous injections of insulin glargine and followed up for 6 months. Cats were considered in remission when euglycemia occurred for ≥4 weeks without the administration of insulin. Nonparametric ...
Fact: While cats will twist around to land feet first if they have sufficient time, they are not always able to do this. Also, even when they do manage to land on their feet, they can still sustain serious injuries, so screening in high windows and balconies is recommended.. Myth: Cats Need Milk.. Fact: While the majority of cats like milk, a properly nourished cat doesnt need it. Many cats will even suffer digestive upsets such as diarrhea after drinking milk. A little milk can be provided for adult cats as an occasional treat if they can tolerate it, but it shouldnt be a dietary staple.. Cows milk should never be given to young kittens. It is nutritionally incomplete for them and can cause life-threatening diarrhea.. Myth: Neutering a Cat Will Make Him Lazy and Fat.. A neutered male cat is unlikely to wander, spray, or get into fights, and neutered cats dont hunt or climb as much. They are also less likely to show aggression toward humans and other pets in the household, or strangers who ...
Veterinarians commonly recommend commercial cat foods that are formulated to address the specific nutritional requirements of cats although an increasing number of owners are opting for home-prepared cooked or raw diets. Although cats are obligate carnivores, vegetarian and vegan cat food are preferred by owners uncomfortable with feeding animal products to their pets. The US FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine has come out against vegetarian cat and dog food for health reasons. Cats can be selective eaters. Although it is extremely rare for a cat to deliberately starve itself to the point of injury, in obese cats, the sudden loss of weight can cause a fatal condition called Feline Hepatic Lipidosis, a liver dysfunction which causes pathological loss of appetite and reinforces the starvation, which can lead to death within as little as 48 hours. Pica is a condition in which animals chew or eat unusual things such as fabric, plastic or wool. In cats, this is mostly harmless as they do not digest ...
Be sure to carrier train your cat. Punishment affects cats differently from dogs. Cats usually respond well to encouragement. Therefore, place your cats favorite toy into its career. Leave the carrier open in a location that your cat frequently visits. In time, the cat will head inside and be happy. Once this is achieved, you can transport your cat inside the carrier much easier.. Feed your cat a few different varieties of food. This can help him not get too finicky. If they eat the same food all the time without changing it, that may be the only one theyll eat later on.. High quality cat food is important to your cat. Look at ingredient lists, making sure that a protein source, such as beef, chicken or fish, is at the top of the list. Dont choose a food which is mainly corn. Cats are naturally carnivorous. If you want to keep them healthy and happy, you need to feed them plenty of animal protein.. ...
Meowing in the quirky way you describe can be explained in many different ways. Certain breeds tend to meow more than others. Siamese cats, for example, often seem to have a lot to communicate. Individual cats may just vocalize more. Your cat could also be hard of hearing. However, something else may be going on.. First, have your cats thyroid checked out by a veterinarian. Sometimes a condition called hyperthyroidism will cause excessive meowing, along with weight loss and other symptoms.. If your cat receives a clean bill of health, then she might be suffering from feline dementia. Danielle Gunn-Moore, a specialist in feline medicine at the University of Edinburghs Royal School of Veterinary Studies, and colleagues investigated cats to see if they suffered from an Alzheimers-like disease and, if so, to see what might cause it. They indeed found that cats could succumb to feline Alzheimers disease, with elderly cats more susceptible. "As with humans, the life expectancy of cats is ...
Cats have a particular disadvantage in Korea. If one were to believe all of what is said about cats in Korean media and popular wisdom, one might also assume that cats live to deceive and frighten people while spreading disease.. Although some dogs, especially small dogs, are kept as pets, it is very uncommon for Koreans to raise cats with similar affection. High-quality cat products are available only through U.S. Military bases, which are not accessible by Korean nationals. Therefore, the cat food and litter one might see at a typical supermarket or pet store are scarce in Korea. Only recently has Korea begin selling cat food, but with high prices and of questionable quality. Vaccinations and common veterinary services for cats are extremely rare.. Like dogs, cats are slaughtered for human consumption because of their mythical medical properties. Vendors boil cats with herbs in large pressure cookers to make goyangi soju, a thick tonic believed to cure rheumatism, arthritis, and neuralgia. ...
More If you already own a cat or dog, youre probably wondering how easy it is to add a cat to the family. The good news is that cats can get along with other cats and-despite the common stereotype-most dogs can get along with cats. The bad news is, introducing a new cat to a home with other pets will require some patience on your part. The best way to handle adding a new cat to the home is to provide time for a period of adjustment. You can do this effectively by isolating your new feline in a room of his own for a while-something thats a good idea for a new cat anyway. After several days, supervise meetings between the animals for periods of increasing length. Most cats will soon learn to accept each other, and some may quite possibly become the best of buddies. Some dogs simply wont tolerate the presence of a cat, but by carefully introducing them, most problems can be solved. Be Responsible ...
Before taking the plunge, its important to know whether the dog is a good candidate to live with a cat and vice-versa. The best possible indicator is confirmation that the dog has successfully lived with a cat(s) before and that the cat has lived with a dog(s).. If there is no history of successful cohabitation, the next best thing is to gather history on the animals and "audition" them with the other species before proceeding. Dogs who arent well socialized to cats are likely to react to cats as though they were either other dogs or prey objects. This means theyll direct play, investigation and posturing at cats or will give chase.. Sometimes theyll do both, partly depending on what "role" the cat plays.. If the dogs gentle, relaxed and friendly and isnt much of a predatory type (i.e. doesnt chase cats or squirrels when outdoors), hes a good prospect to develop a relationship with a cat.. Predatory types are much more stressful for cats and must be constantly managed when around the cat ...
What causes them?. There are a number of different things that could cause them. Sometimes cats are genetically predisposed to get kidney stones, meaning that because of the way their genes are the kidney will function slightly differently in a way that makes them more likely to form. Sometimes the cause has to do with the cats diet, which can affect both the level of minerals inside the cats kidney and the acidity, which affects whether the minerals will clump or dissolve. Finally, infections and a cat not drinking enough water or a cat refusing to drink water can cause them to form as well. What are the symptoms?. Blood in the urine is a big one. The cat may also seem to be vomiting more frequently, and it may have feline urinary tract infections on a regular basis as well. Finally, if your cat seems sensitive to you touching its body (either on the belly or the sides) it may be a sign of them as well.. Your vet will have to diagnose them to be certain. They can usually see them in an X-ray, ...
There are many different ways to communicate without sound. You can simply wave at your cat to get his or her attention, or flip a light on and off. At close range, sharp hand claps might provide enough vibration in the air to get your cats attention. Pointing a flashlight or pen light in the direction of the cat and turning it on and off can do the trick, too, especially if the flashing light is followed by a tasty incentive. You can also use a laser light, but be careful not to shine it in the cats eyes. Another method: Throw a small ball or soft toy into your cats line of sight. Before you do something to get your deaf cats attention, consider whether the action will frighten your pet. At feeding time, flick an overhead light on and off two or three times and/or tap your toes on the floor to call the cat. Your cat can feel the vibrations if he is relatively close. It may not be necessary to alert your cat that its mealtime, however, because many cats have an "internal clock" that tells ...
Seriously? Yes! Evidence is mounting that the common FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and paneleukopenia) vaccine may cause long-term damage to cats kidneys that increases with every booster. Heres the report from Colorado State University:. The Center for Companion Animal Studies at Colorado State University has shown that cats vaccinated with FVRCP vaccines grown on Crandell-Rees Feline Kidney (CRFK) cell lines can develop antibodies to renal proteins, and that cats hypersensitized to CRFK cell lysates can develop interstitial nephritis…Cats administered FVRCP vaccines parenterally (by injection) have higher levels of circulating antibodies to these antigens than do cats who were administered a FVRCP vaccine for intranasal administration.. Similar antibodies have been implicated in the development of renal disease in humans, and there is every reason to suspect that they do the same in cats. Chronic chronic kidney disease (CKD) in cats is known to be caused by chronic ...
Certified cat behavioral consultant Marilyn Krieger recently received a flustered phone call from a couple in Redwood City, Calif: One of the couples two cats had started spraying urine around the perimeter doors and windows of their home. The two cats had always lived together peacefully. The owners were wondering what was provoking the male to mark its territory in such a smelly manner.. After visiting the family, Krieger learned that the couple had recently started feeding stray feral cats right outside their home. They said the male cat would get very upset when the feral cats arrived. He could see them out the window. "Cats spray for a variety of reasons," Krieger says. "In this case, it could be a way of telling the world and the other outside cats, Hey, Im here. Stay out. This is where I live. You dont belong here.". Cats use a variety of methods to mark people, things and territory with their scent. Spraying and scratching are two such scent-marking ways that are the most difficult ...
The mutation that gives male cats a ginger-colored coat and females ginger, tortoiseshell, or calico coats produced a particularly telling map. The orange mutant gene is found only on the X, or female, chromosome. As with humans, female cats have paired sex chromosomes, XX, and male cats have XY sex chromosomes. The female cat, therefore, can have the orange mutant gene on one X chromosome and the gene for a black coat on the other. The piebald gene is on a different chromosome. If expressed, this gene codes for white, or no color, and is dominant over the alleles that code for a certain color (i.e. orange or black), making the white spots on calico cats. If that is the case, those several genes will be expressed in a blotchy coat of the tortoiseshell or calico kind. But the male, with his single X chromosome, has only one of that particular coat-color gene: he can be not-ginger or he can be ginger (although some modifier genes can add a bit of white here and there), but unless he has a ...
Therapy cats often cause people to do a double-take. Its common for dogs to be therapy pets, but very few cats are certified as therapy pets.. In the following story, Nicole Young reports on a hospice that welcomes therapy cats who are improving the quality of life for terminally ill patients.. Claire Gallo has had a tough month.. Her mother, Stephanie Zembar, 53, was admitted to Nashvilles Alive Hospice Residence on Nov. 12 after battling glioblastoma, a deadly brain tumor, for nearly a year.. Gallo dropped out of Auburn University the following Monday, packed up her dorm room and headed home.. But last week her tired face lit up ever so slightly as she held Baldwin, a 10-year-old therapy cat, while standing just outside her mothers room.. "My mom loves cats," the 18-year-old Brentwood resident said, looking down at Baldwin. "Seeing a cat here reminds me of how it was at home. My cat loved her so much, and I really think cats can soothe someone.. "Cats are wise. They know whats up.". For ...
It is clear, from the dry diet experiments particularly, that there was a carbohydrate intake ceiling for cats at ca. 300 kJ day-1 (e.g. see the horizontal alignment at this value in Fig. 1B,C). This is seen particularly in the dry diet Expts 1, 3, 4 and 5 in which diet pfC was used. Protein intake on days during phase 2 when cats were fed diet pfC was 134, 102, 132 and 141 kJ day-1 compared with the target of 420 kJ day-1. Furthermore, energy intake on days that cats were fed diet pfC during phase 2 of these studies was 514, 475, 552 and 559 kJ day-1 compared with ∼1000 kJ day-1 on the days the other diets were used (see Table 3). Based on a maintenance energy requirement for adult cats of 77.6 kcal kg-0.71 (Bermingham et al., 2010), which equates to ∼1017 kJ day-1 for a 5 kg cat, it can be seen that consumption of dry diet pfC resulted in deficits of both energy and protein intake (relative to the target). The carbohydrate ceiling explains many of the intake patterns seen in both dry and ...
Cat play and toys incorporates predatory games of "play aggression". Cats behaviors when playing are similar to hunting behaviors. These activities allow kittens and younger cats to grow and acquire cognitive and motor skills, and to socialize with other cats. Cat play behavior can be either solitary (with toys or other objects) or social (with animals and people). They can play with a multitude of toys ranging from strings, to small furry toys resembling what would be prey (e.g. mice), to plastic bags. Since cats are meat-eating predators, nearly all cat games are predatory games. Prey is fearful of predators. Predators often encounter prey that attempt to escape predation. Prey that moves towards the cat with confidence may be exhibiting an aggressive defensive posture. Cats often play with toys that behave more like fearful prey trying to escape than toys that mimic a more confrontational prey. Success rate is important in play. A cat that catches its prey every time soon gets bored, and a ...
To minimize the chances of infection, it is important to know that cat AIDS is spread by saliva and blood. If you are concerned about infected cats in your area, keep your cat separated to ensure that he doesnt come in contact with an FIV-positive cat. Although there is a vaccine that decreases the chance of your pet contracting FIV, cats that are kept from interacting with infected cats have a minimal risk of becoming ill. If you know that your cat is infected with FIV, help to decrease the chances of his spreading the disease to other cats by keeping him inside and isolated from any other pets. Feline immunodeficiency virus is not transmittable to humans. With the knowledge of how FIV is spread, you can successfully guard your cat against infection. ...
The cats teeth must be brushed with a special pet brush or a childrens size brush. Dont use adult human tooth brushes, as these can injure the cats gums. You should also buy some meat flavored pet toothpaste. Avoid human toothpaste, as cats dont like the flavor. Cats typically dont like having their teeth brushed, so you will need to trick your cat into being obedient. This can be done either by giving your pet a taste of the toothpaste, or with treats and verbal reassurance. If the cat rejects the tooth brush, you can still use your finger to rub a bit of toothpaste against his teeth and remove the plaque. You have to make sure you cover all the areas of your cats teeth and be careful: your cat can bite you if hes not comfortable enough with your hand. Try to make gradual moves and you can use your other hand to hold the cats mouth still. Teeth cleaning is important for cats, as they can get tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque can accumulate after each meal; after 48 to 72 hours, the ...
Many shelters already provide a hiding space for cats. One example is the BCSPCAs Hide Perch and Go, which provides a hiding space, a perching space and can be used to transport the cat. Another is the Feline Fort from Cats Protection that includes a step and table as well as hiding place and is easy to disinfect.. The research is only about shelter cats and not owned cats, but it has implications for cats at home, who benefit from hiding spaces too. Providing a safe space is one of the five pillars of a healthy feline environment (Ellis et al 2013). Cats are prey animals and can be taken by coyotes etc, and as solitary hunters if they got injured it would have serious consequences for future food acquisition. So cats feel safer when they have places to hide, which may be enclosed, high up, and in a quiet area.. Why not take a look around your home and see which spaces are available for your cat to hide in. Under the bed and under the settee can be good hiding places, but they are still quite ...
Cats have 23 words - or distinct vocal sounds - in their vocabularies. They also use their bodies to communicate. Hazel Carney listens for the number of "mes" and "ows" and the emphasis on each sound. Chirping: Cats will trill a chirp-like greeting to say hello. That indicates friendliness.. Purring: Cats have three types of purrs, Carney said, and all three mean something different. The classic happy cat purr is rhythmic and deep. The frightened purr is a lower pitch and monotonous. Then, 24 hours preceding death, cats are known to make a low-pitched, constant purr.. Ears and whiskers: Forward-pointing ears and whiskers indicate interest.Feet: Any cat that allows you to readily handle his feet tends to be a very good-natured cat, Carney said.Slow blinking: This is the equivalent of a kitty kiss, Carney said. "Its the main compliment a cat gives to his owner."Staring: A cat that stares at you has a greater aggressive tendency than one that averts his eyes. "In the wild, a cat fixes his eyes ...

You can teach your cat to give you a high-five, one animal expert says.. In fact, we can do away with the myth that training a feline is as tough as . . . well, as tough as herding a bunch of cats, says Helena Kokes, training and behavioral coordinator at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley.. "Cats can be trained as well as dogs," said Kokes, who runs a unique new cat behavioral training program at the society.. So why havent we heard much about cat training before?. "Cats have done well at training us," said Kokes, who came to the society recently from the Denver Dumb Friends League. "Cats manipulate the situation.". Her trainng program seeks much more than teaching felines how to do tricks, however.. It aims to socialize kittens with people and to cure annoying bad habits of adult cats that make the animals less likely to stick in good homes. And thats important since cats have surpassed the number of dogs in American households. The Boulder society is able to offer such a program because ...
Cats are trickier to care for than most dogs.. In the US, there are about 5% more cat than dog households. About 65% to 60%. (That means, for all you pet lovers out there, 40% of households do not have a pet. Yes! 40%, Can you believe that?!) Yet cat medicine is still a new endeavor. Cats are not small dogs. We learned that in the 1970s, when cats went blind and suffered dilated cardiomyopathy from lack of the essential amino acid taurine. Dogs and humans assemble their own taurine in the body. Cats do not. So the poor things were going blind and suffering heart attacks because no one knew!. Cats are tricky to hold, restrain, and work with. And they oftentimes hide their symptoms of illness until they are rip-roaring super-duper sick. A sick cat often needs intravenous fluids to save his or her life.. Many people ask Doc Truli, "How do you keep an i.v. in a cat?". Well now, thats a good question.. ...
When the cat is castrated, leaving after surgery will be simple. The cats are made so small a cut that it does not even require suturing. Therefore, your task is to help your pet get out of anesthesia gently, in a cozy atmosphere. To do this, it is advisable to close the pet in the carrier in the first few hours after the operation, the bottom of which will be covered with a litter and a special absorbent cloth, because when the anesthesia is gone, the coordination of movements can be impaired, and the cat can accidentally injure itself.. When cats are sterilized, care after surgery will be different. After it, your cat will have a suture that will need to be removed from the veterinarian after 7-10 days. Accordingly, in addition to ensuring a smooth and comfortable exit from anesthesia, you will need to process the sutures every day and not allow them to be licked by the cat (for this, they will put on a special blanket in the veterinary clinic). We recommend that you ask your veterinarian in ...
Cat guide for the Abyssininan or Aby Cat, cat breed information, description and cat colors, cat behaviors, and cat care for keeping healthy pet cats
Spotlight on a Frequently Asked Question SHOULD WE USE CATS AS MOUSERS? The short answer is no. For a detailed response, see below. Why not? Arent cats supposed to kill mice and rats? Cats do kill mice and rats, but they also kill many non-target species. The domestic cat is a prolific hunter of birds, small mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Cats do not distinguish among the species they kill. More than likely, when a cat is employed to keep pests at bay, she is also harming native wildlife. Cats can kill rare, threatened or endangered species or species of special concern, as well as many common species. Barn swallows, Carolina wrens and other magnificent wild creatures that share our spaces needlessly die due to this knee-jerk response to rodent problems. In fact, results of a study published in 2004 by Hawkins, et al. stated: The presence of homeless house cats that received supplemental food had a negative impact on native California rodents and birds. Native rodents and birds were less ...
The strange cat behavior: Weve all been there: were lying in bed, finally drifting off to sleep, when suddenly we hear the cat go bounding up and down the hallway. What makes our cats act like theyre possessed in the middle of the night!?. The explanation: Cats are crepuscular. That means that in nature, they are the most active at dusk and dawn and sleep during the day. Spending precious daytime hours awake with you might be throwing off his sleep schedule a bit (remember all those times your cat woke you up at night to cuddle. Its a bit like that). Cats also tend to sleep in sections: instead of one long sleep period, your cat is probably taking a few long naps and waking up several times throughout the night.. This behavior is usually silly and harmless, but if your cat is keeping you from sleeping, you can try a few different methods to calm him down before bedtime. Feed the last big meal before bed, or set aside some play time right before bed. Either solution may keep your cat - and ...

Interesting article, but I get very tired of the old saw that cats are "solitary hunters that defend their home ranges fiercely from other cats of the same sex." Tell that to the colonies of cats living in the Coliseum and other Roman ruins, or the barn-cat colonies Ive observed around my rural community. Tell that to the various cats Ive owned over 40 years, all of whom exhibit prey-stealing and prey-hiding behaviors that clearly bespeak a species that is NOT solitary when it comes to hunting. When I was young, we had a tom who roamed and hunted cooperatively with a neighbors neutered male cat, both of them full adults (i.e., this was not a juvenile behavior). They also cooperatively FOUGHT an extremely aggressive tom who lived at the end of the block. My cats are so sociable theyll hunker with possums just as they will with neighboring cats. Solitary my foot! ;D. ...
How to Tame a Feral Cat or Kitten! By Mary Mathews With a little patience and time, a feral (or wild) cat can be tamed into a loving pet. Younger cats are more apt to adjust quickly: 6-to-8-week-old kittens typically take two to three weeks to adjust to a domestic environment. Steps: 1. Enclose the cat or kitten in a small space at first - a bathroom or bed-room works best. 2. Turn out the light if the cat is terrified; this often has a calming effect. 3. Put a bed, a litter box, food and water in the room. If the cat is very young (6 to 12 weeks), put her in a large carrier with a grated door and small windows. 4. Spend at least 2 to 3 hours a day with the animal. Just sitting quietly in the same room will allow the cat to learn that you are not a threat. 5. Gently compel the cat to let you touch her. Carefully wrap a blanket around her if you have to, hold her on your lap and pet her. Stroke her coat and touch her ears, face and neck as you talk to her in…. ...

Dietary management is an extremely important aspect of managing cats with kidney failure.. There are several excellent prescription diets available in both wet and dry forms. These diets contain smaller amounts of high quality protein and less phosphorus than normal cat food. The body is able to use this high quality protein very efficiently hence reducing the amounts of waste products from protein digestion that the kidneys need to excrete. Kidney failure also causes a buildup of phosphorus in the blood which in turn hastens the progression of the kidney disease. These diets work best if fed exclusively.. There have been some good studies to show that cats on these diets not only live longer but are happier than cats with kidney failure eating normal cat food. This is thought to be because it is the build up of these waste products in the blood that leads to cats with CRI feeling nauseous and lethargic.. Cats are creatures of habit and sometimes need some time of gradual introduction to get ...

Low-cal cat foods are designed to make your cat feel full while actually giving him fewer calories. In some cases, your vet may prescribe a weight-reducing food or suggest buying a commercial brand. Make sure theres plenty of fresh water available, and ask your vet about feeding your cat both dry and canned food -- the latter can keep him fuller, longer.. Avoid free feeding your cat. You cant tell how much your cat is eating if you leave a bowl of food out all day. Keep meals at regular intervals, and pick up what isnt eaten after about 20 or 30 minutes. Your cat will learn to eat when the food is out. If you have more than one cat, you may need to feed them in separate rooms so that theyll stick to their own bowls.. If your dieting cat gorges on his food and then acts like he is starving later, try splitting the food up into smaller meals. Also, keep in mind that your cat may actually be craving attention, not food (although he will take food instead). Try petting or playing with him ...
Cats in early stages of kidney disease usually do not show signs of the disease. Typically, signs do not appear until 75 percent of kidney function has been lost. With early diagnosis, acute renal failure can be detected and managed. However, chronic renal failure is an incurable condition that mainly affects older cats and is treated with palliative care. Depending on the condition, your vet may recommend fluid therapy, food modification, blood pressure drugs, dialysis or a transplant.. Because symptoms may not be apparent until your cats kidney functions have been lost, it is important to make sure your cat gets her regular check-up at the vet. This could be the difference in catching it early and catching it too late. Also, it is helpful to document unusual tendencies you notice in your cat from the onset such as the ones listed above; this can be very helpful in helping your vet to determine if your cats kidneys need to be further examined. Its recommended that all cats 7 years and older ...

I have a 9 year old male cat, very sweet. He was the youngest of three cats. I lost one cat a year ago and another about 2 months ago. This cat, Mr. Boots, was the king and ruled the roost. On Saturday night, I just got two kittens (very cute) and Smeagol (the male cat) spent the first two days hiding in the bedroom. Now, he is making an appearance and he is a third curious, a third scared, and a third hostile. My question is this... when I go to work, should I keep Smeagol and the kittens separated? Would it be wrong to keep Smeagol in the bedroom (where he has been hiding out)? As silly as it seems, I dont want him to think tht he is being punished. Should I confine the kittens? Or would it be okay just to keep the status quo and let Smeagol come to terms with the kittens. I dont know if Smeagol would hurt the kittens...whereas the kittens could care less about the Smeagol. Hes just the cat that runs back and forth from the kitchen to the bedroom. Thank you for you help ...
While weight gain is desirable among kittens, a steady weight is the goal for adult cats. "As kittens become cats, they become more sedentary, and theyre no longer growing. They need less calories than they once did," says Joyce, noting that obesity is a growing problem among American house pets. "Your adult cats nutritional needs should be met but not exceeded." To allow weight gain in mature cats is to put them a risk for chronic health conditions like diabetes, liver disease and arthritis.. A veterinarian can monitor your adult cats weight, but you must also be attentive to your cats physique. You should be able to feel your cats ribs and see a small tapering of a waist between your cats rib cage and hips. If a weight problem develops, you can address it by participating in active play with kitty, and also by feeding a commercial weight control diet, which provides less dietary fat without sacrificing necessary nutrients.. Take-Away Tip: Address weight gain immediately by feeding a ...
A multiplex bead immunoassay system (Milliplex Human Cytokine kit; Millipore Corp., Billerica, MA, USA) was used to analyze cytokine concentrations. The results were analyzed by using the Bio-Plex suspension array system (Bio-Plex200; BioRad, Hercules, CA, USA) according to the manufacturers instructions, vitreous or venous blood samples were diluted 2-fold to 10-fold, and 100 μL diluted sample was added into each of the ELISA plates for the analysis.

Cats become diabetic when their blood sugar levels are high for too long; in fact, a normal cat with a healthy pancreas will become diabetic if subjected to intravenous glucose infusions over time. In a more natural setting, the problem is a high-carbohydrate diet rather than an intravenous glucose infusion. When we eat carbohydrates and they enter our bodies, there is a rise in blood sugar level that persists for several hours. In cats, it is more like 8 to 12 hours, even longer if the cat is obese. All this circulating blood sugar stimulates insulin secretion so that all that sugar can be stored in the body. If the cat is snacking on dry food throughout the day, he may be secreting insulin throughout the day as well. This makes for a fat cat and a depleted pancreas.. Obesity makes body tissues more resistant to the effects of insulin so that the pancreas must secrete even more insulin to put away the same amount of circulating sugar if the cat is overweight. While weight loss is reported in 70 ...
Cat-lovers have taken over the Internet-arent they just toxoplasma zombies anyway? And many apartment units are feeling the love, allowing cats only: no dogs.. A common misconception is that cats keep to themselves, are generally low-maintenance. But many have found even cats can be destructive to property. When it comes to cats, lets just say property destruction is inversely related to physical activity. When the yarn ball isnt around, or the toy mouse doesnt squirm around the floor, your cat is going to need some attention.. Whether you play with your cat or not, it needs to burn energy somehow. That may translate into plucked couches or torn curtains. This is an easy issue to fix. Consider purchasing a laser for it to chase. If your cat has claws, get a scratch post for them to use. Sometimes it is best to have a scratch post for each room. You can also purchase anti-scratch tape that cats dislike to touch. Whatever you do, make sure Oliver has an outlet for all that feline ...
What are the symptoms?. The biggie to look out for is a cat limping frequently or seeming like it is painful to do basic things like walking or jumping. The cat may seem stiff in the limbs when its walking. As with people, this gets worse when theyre just waking up or when its colder. The joints may also swell or look kind of weird because of improper bone growth (but that depends on the cause of the arthritis). What is the treatment?. The treatment for arthritis in cats will be much easier if you get them to the vet as soon as you notice it. It can get progressively worse, especially if its caused by problems with the bones growing over the joints. For this form, the cat may need to have surgery to remove some of the growth. Otherwise, the usual treatments include a proper diet to get your cats weight under control if needed, exercising the cat frequently by playing with it, keeping the cat warm so that the cold doesnt make the pain worse, and appropriate medication for cats. One of the ...

To test for cat preferences for types of human interactions, the cats owner (if it was a pet cat) or a researcher (if it was a shelter cat) spent one minute talking to the cat, another minute petting the cat (or holding their hand out to offer petting), and another minute playing with the cat with the feather toy (or holding out the toy). Researchers measured what proportion of each minute the cat spent interacting with the human. The cats interacted most with the humans during the play condition, next followed by petting, and least of all talking ...

What You Can Do. If your cat isnt eating, try to entice it with these four steps:. 1. Heat the food. The aroma of warm canned cat food just might tempt your kitty. However, make sure you just add warm water instead of microwaving, cautions McGeorge. Microwaves can heat unevenly, and you risk scalding your cats mouth.. 2. Offer food by hand. The attention you pay to your cat while you feed a few morsels by hand can make a difference.. 3. Adjust for age. Consider soft food if your elderly cat has tooth issues. Elevate the food bowl if your kitty is arthritic.. 4. Provide a safe, quiet location. Make sure your kitty is comfortable with the location of its food dish. Set up several feeding stations in a multi-cat household.. Your veterinarian remains your best resource when your cat quits eating. Some owners hesitate making the call, figuring their cats appetite might return or worrying theyll make a veterinary visit for no reason. "The big message from me is to bring your cat in," says ...
Unless you have acquired a purebred cat for breeding purposes, neutering or spaying is recommended and has a positive effect on your cats health. Neutering (males) or spaying (females) is a responsible way to prevent the birth of unwanted litters. It can also improve your kittens disposition and prevent many undesirable behaviors such as urinating, or spraying. Spaying and neutering is so widely recommended, many shelters and humane societies require this procedure before you can adopt a cat so that more unwanted kittens dont come into the world.. Spaying is the surgical removal of the female cats reproductive organs. After spaying, she will not experience heat cycles or become pregnant. Most veterinarians feel that 5 -6 months of age is the ideal time for spaying, before she has her first heat. When a cat is in heat, she becomes restless, nervous and tense. She may roll on the floor frequently and appear more demanding. Her voice may also become more piercing.. Once your cat has been ...
So, please tell me , those city council isnt going to spend tax dollars to do this "count" of cats. How do you tell one black cat from another, so avoid cats being "counted" once, twice, or many times, to overstate the numbers? Are you going to ask the cat is its a stray , or just a nice loved owned cat spendind some "garden time" in the sun. You KNOW that this will include owned cats, and those will become at risk at the muderious hands of the Audubon as well. The city council better stop this nonsense, and the waste of tax dollars and the publics time. Tell the Audubon and other special intrests groups to go back to doing what they do, and LET the animal control agency Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority (SVACA) and PAHS, the local non-profit, to do what they do best, which is to contol the population by humane methods.

Theres good news, and theres bad news. But the bad news is good news. Sort of. And the good news, well… it remains to be seen how it will be cataloged when the chapter is completed.. Ill get the first news out of the way now, because its hard for me to write about. Those of you who know me well know that I love cats. Ive had at least one cat ever since Ive been an almost adult, for over 46 years. One of the best cats Ive ever had is Sushi, the cat I got 11 years ago at the Dane County Humane Society. Sushi is fine, dont worry, Im not working up to tell you that shes died. As a matter of fact, shes never been happier. Shes just not at Redstart Farm.. Long story short: Im allergic to cats. A lot. So much so that when I went to the humane society to look for a cat I held prospects up against my face and waited to see if my eyes would redden, my lungs would close and Id break out into hives. Thats what happened with my first three choices. Sushi was the only cat who didnt elicit ...
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.
Cat scratch disease is also known as cat scratch fever. This disease strikes people who are infected by the Bartonella henselae bacteria. In almost all cases, cat scratch disease occurs when the person was scratched or bitten by his cat. The cat itself does not catch cat scratch disease. It is just a carrier. Now, before you panic and send your cat to the pound, the National Center for Infectious Diseases (CDC) estimates that 40% of all cats carry this disease at some time in their lives. Considering how many cat owners exist in the world, clearly, this disease is not very infectious or dangerous.. But how do you know whether you were infected by cat scratch disease? The first thing you want to look at is the place your cat bit or scratched you. Is the wound infected? (Note: If you cannot find the wound, then you do not have cat scratch disease.) Then you want to check your lymph nodes. Are the nodes around your head, neck and upper limbs swollen? Do you also have fever, headache, fatigue, and a ...

FELINE INFECTIOUS PERITONITIS Navies 2011 Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) is a progressive, almost always fatal, viral disease of domestic cats. It affects some exotic cats, with the cheetah being particularly susceptible. It does not affect non-feline species, such as dogs. Etiology or Cause      Field strains of feline coronavirus vary in their ability to induce FIP. Some isolates cause FIP (feline infectious peritonitis virus [FIPV]others cause more localized GI disease) Mutations from feline enteric coronavirus to FIPV occur. FIP is thought to result from a mutation of the virus within the body, combined with the response of the immune system, leading to inflammation in various organ systems. FIPV and canine coronavirus are very closely related antigenically and may have crossed between hosts. Feline coronaviruses are fairly stable in the environment and, once dry, can survive for 4-6 wk. They are enveloped viruses and are destroyed by most household disinfectants, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Calcium‐dependent enhancement by carbachol of the VIP‐induced cyclic AMP accumulation in cat submandibular gland. AU - ENYEDI, PETER. AU - FREDHOLM, BERTIL B.. PY - 1984/4. Y1 - 1984/4. N2 - The interaction of two coexisting transmitters in the cat submandibular gland has been elucidated by studying effects of VIP and carbachol on cyclic AMP accumulation in isolated acini from the gland. Carbachol was found to potentiate the cyclic AMP increase induced by VIP by an atropine sensitive mechanism. The effect of carbachol on cyclic AMP accumulation was abolished by including EGTA in the incubation medium as was the carbachol mediated potentiation of VIP responses. The calmodulin inhibitor trifluoperazine had a similar, but less marked effect. The effect of carbachol was mimicked by phenylephrine (30 μM) and by the calcium inophore A 23187 (3 μM), and also by ethanol in a concentration reported to enhance membrane fluidity. The phospholipase A2 inhibitor, mepacrine, tended to ...
Commonly abbreviated as CSD, Cat Scratch Disease is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria Bartonella henselae. As the name suggests, CSD is often caused by scratches and bites from cats that become infected. An indication of CSD is when the lymph nodes around the neck, heads, and sometimes the upper limbs show signs of swelling. Other symptoms of CSD may include fatigue, fever, headache, and a loss of appetite. In rare instances, complications from CSD may arise such as Parinauds oculolandular syndrome and bacillary angiomatosis. Cats do have the capacity to spread Bartonella henselae to humans. Kittens pose a greater risk than cats and pass the bacterium onto their owners more often than adult cats. At some point in their lifetimes, approximately forty percent of cats become carriers of the Bartonella henselae. Cats who are carriers display no symptoms and will not act sickly. It is impossible to tell whether or not a cat can spread the disease to their owner.. Individuals with weak ...
Bartonella henselae is a zoonotic agent in which the domestic cat serves as the natural reservoir, and humans acquire potentially serious infections associated with this microorganism. The purpose of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the pathogenesis of B. henselae in the domestic cat using a molecular approach. Using sequence differences in a portion of the I 6S rRNA gene between B. henselae genotype I, and B. henselae genotype II, a nested polymerase chain reaction (nPCR) was designed and used to investigate various phases of feline bartonellosis. The nPCR detected 3.2 organisms per milliliter of blood which is below the detection limits of standard bacterial culture. Bartonella henselae LSU 16 genotype II, Bartonella henselae Baby genotype II, Bartonella henselae 87--66 genotype I, and Bartonella henselae Houston-1 genotype I were used in this study to infect cats. The PCR assay detected Bartonella DNA in 40 blood samples that were culture negative. The bacteremia as

Yes. Citing multiple advantages, William T. DeCarbo, DPM, AACFAS, emphasizes that combining a flexor digitorum longus tendon transfer with a gastrocnemius recession and medial displacement calcaneal osteotomy can provide pain relief to patients with stage 2 posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. No. Lawrence A. DiDomenico, DPM, FACFAS, Ramy Fahim, DPM, AACFAS, and Zachary Thomas, DPM, say performing the flexor digitorum longus tendon transfer is unnecessary in most cases and this tendon lacks the long-term mechanical advantage to stabilize the midfoot in patients with stage 2 adult-acquired flatfoot.
