Cats tend to be a lot healthier compared to their canine counterparts, mostly because some spend the entirety of their lives indoors, so they are less exposed to the dangers of the outside world. This is also a reason why they have longer life spans compared to dogs.
But every cat will get sick at one point in their life, so as a pet owner, you should know what to expect. Here are a few of the most commonly encountered health issues cats can experience.
Every cat parent knows that cats are extremely independent and self-sufficient and that, in most cases, they aren’t even people pleasers as their canine counterparts.
But while this makes cats somewhat easier to care for, it can also be a disadvantage as your pet might develop unwanted behaviours and due to this species’ well-known (and loved) stubbornness, you might have a hard time teaching them otherwise.
Most cats love to spend time outdoors, which can make things a little challenging for their owners. As a pet parent, you might not want to restrict your cat’s freedom, yet you know that the outdoors can be dangerous.
There are cars, strange people, other animals, and other risks that you can expose your cat to if you simply allow them to roam free.
