Did you know...

Are you aware as a cat-owner that despite as many as 8,000 years of domestication, your charming little feline still harbors a "hide & adapt" instinct, dating back to the days when cats lived & travelled in "prides"? When cats lived like this, if one fell ill or was injured, it would hide and adapt until the physical problem interfered with normal functioning. They did this to keep from being driven out by other cats who might be fearful that they would spread infection or hold the pride behind. In today's modern age, cats continue to hold onto this instinct. They're quiet about pain or illness & their pet-owners often find it difficult to detect subtle changes that might indicate something is going on with them. As they age, we recommend bi-annual check-ups for this very reason. There are a variety of medical changes that can occur in the senior cat that are easily managed when caught early by preventative testing.
