Kitty sick? How can you tell?

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

cat-pill2 The last day or so, I’ve been leaving little bits here and there about how you might tell whether your kitty “has got the blues” or whether he’s really sick!

Today, I’m sharing a “heart” thought:

The beat of his heart

When Billy sleeps on his side on my lap, I can feel his heart beat. In sleep, generally you kitty ought to be cool, calm and collected! If you’re uncertain as to your kitty’s state of mind, count the beats of his heart for 15 seconds and then multiply that number by 4 (this is the same for humans).

For the most part, a cat’s heart rate is between 160 to 220 beats per minute. Anything outside those numbers is cause for you to call your veterinarian.

If you stop back tomorrow, I’ll have one last tidbit in this series.

Yours in your kitty’s best interest,

and “The Boys”

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.
