Every cat has their own “normal”

Get to know the 4 key areas of cat behavior we like to call “The Feline 4”
As a cat parent, you have a unique ability to know what normal looks like. In fact, the more familiar you are with their daily routines, favorite hiding spaces, and one-of-a-kind habits, the easier it may be to spot changes in their wellness. If you detect a change in your cat’s “normal”, remember that you’re their lifeline. Don’t hesitate to seek professional veterinary care.

Let a Veterinarian be YOUR Lifeline

Your cat puts their full trust in you. And a loving home with plenty of cozy sleeping spots is totally your thing. But when it comes to their health, there’s a world of veterinarians and cat-compassionate clinics that can help you provide a lifetime of health and happiness.

How to partner with your veterinarian, whether there’s paws for concern or not

You’re not the first cat owner to wonder if you really need to make a trip to the vet - but here are some things to consider:

You can’t always know what your cat is feeling

Veterinarians are not only experts in feline biology and medicine, but also in how a cat’s behavior relates to their health. So when you may be unsure what behavior means, they will have the answer.

The last thing you want is a cat‑astrophe

Regular visits, even when your cat is healthy, have many benefits. A wellness exam helps give your veterinarian a snapshot of kitty's health, rule out potential issues, and provide preventative care such as vaccines.

A cat-compassionate practice can be your greatest ally

You want the best for your cat and when there’s a health issue, a cat-compassionate veterinarian can be your strongest partner in providing medical help with a gentle touch.
