Decisions, decisions: do you need the vet?

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

cat-pill2If you’re a cat mom or cat dad, you know there may be times when your kitty seems to just “mope” around the house, leaving you at a loss in wondering if something could be wrong with her.

Your natural inclination might be to want to take her to the vet then and there, but if she’s a regular moper, that could get to be an expensive and cumbersome chore. Your vet may even come to think one of you is a hypochondriac!

In view of the not knowing, over the next few days I’m sharing (in little bits) some tell-tale signs you can be on the look-out for when it comes to your furbie’s health needs:

Hot or cold

While I have yet to take any of our cats’ temperature in all the years we’ve had cats (we’ve left that up to the vet and his rectal thermometer), a cat’s body temperature is 100 to 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Temps below 99 or over 104 are in the range that mean a call to the vet is in order.

I’ve got four more tips to share with you; stop back tomorrow to get another tip.

Yours in your kitty’s best interest,

and “The Boys”

P.S. Until my next tip, check out Paulette Cooper’s has a handy little book of 277 Secrets Your Cat Wants You to Know.

Note: These tips are for your consideration. If at any time you think something is out of the ordinary health-wise for your kitty, your veterinarian is just a telephone call away.
