Do You Know When Your Cat is Sick?

When it comes to illness, injury or pain, cats can be very stoic and not show obvious outward signs. Very often, the red flag that indicates your cat may have a medical problem might be related to a behavior change. And, when it comes to changes in behavior it’s not unusual for cat parents to miss those subtle signs or attribute the behavior to kitty being mad or upset at something or someone.

Here are some potential signs of illness:

Change in activity level

Change in interaction with human family members or companion animals

Atypical aggressive behavior

Increase or decrease in appetite

Change in water intake

Change in litter box habits

Change in urine amount, color or odor

Change in bowel amount, color, consistency or odor

Change in sleeping patterns
