CAT LIVES MATTER
As cats age, they change. Their personality changes with increased social maturity, but they maintain many of the traits which makes them so appealing as kittens. However, the physical changes come much faster and are much more serious.
At FFC, we want to help you to recognise the changes your cat is going through, and offer help and advice about how best to deal with current or potential health problems. For example, did you know that almost 1/3 of cats will have arthritis by the time they turn 3 years old, and 90% will have it to some degree by age 10?
Spotting the symptoms of illness is crucial to how effective the treatment will be. Our handy guides will help you to see problems early.
GENERAL CAT CARE ADVICE
CATS ARE UNIQUE
Cats aren’t unusual amongst our pets in their inability to point to where something might hurt, of course, but they are much better than most pets at hiding pain and discomfort. This makes our jobs as cat owners and cat care professionals that much harder.
Because cats share our living space on their own terms, it is often difficult to even know that something is wrong, let alone know the specifics. Changes in their behaviour, as a result of illness or injury, are often so subtle that we can easily be fooled into thinking it is just old age or something similarly routine.
If you are a cat owner, and have any doubts about the health of your feline friend, get help immediately. They will thank you for it in their own way.
