We’ve said it before; there seems to be a day, week or month to commemorate everything. Following Dress Your Pet Day and Train Your Dog Month, today Hannah Society is celebrating National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day!
Whether you’re a “cat person” or not, it’s natural to observe a cat and wonder exactly what they’re thinking. To celebrate this special day, Hannah has compiled a list of questions and answers about our feline friends. Questions are the easy part; it’s the answers that are hard. Afterall, cats are still a mystery to us, even after thousands of years of domestication. So, let’s tackle some of these together. And remember, if you have a cat and you need help with these questions, health concerns or behavioral issues, Hannah is here to help!
- Why do I get hairballs? Hairballs are a common problem for cats and cat parents, especially for our long-haired friends. Cats like to be clean, and cleaning themselves leads to hairballs. It’s natural, but it’s messy and can be quite uncomfortable for them. Lots of brushing and a diet high in fiber can help.
- My breath is awful! What can I do? Bad breath in cats is an indication of gingivitis, which can lead to loss of teeth and disease. Regular brushing and dental exams and cleanings are the best way to prevent these common problems. With Hannah’s Total Lifetime Care program, members receive dentals, as well as all other medical procedures, such as vaccinations, emergencies and surgeries , for one low monthly fee.
- I’m a talker! What am I trying to tell my Pet parent? There are a number of reasons why cats meow. Maybe she’s hungry, hurt, in heat or stressed. But often, they meow because they want your attention. Remember to spend time playing with, cuddling, brushing and petting your cat. They’re social animals and they need your companionship!
- I’m an indoor cat. Do I really need an annual exam? Yes! Like humans, a cat’s body changes with age. A yearly exam, like those provided by Hannah’s Total Lifetime Care Program, can help you to identify and treat any problems that may arise.
- I want to get out and roam. Should you let me? It’s not advisable. Indoor cats can get lost or hurt as a result of not being familiar with the world outside. Instead, leave the blinds open in a window where she can soak up some sun and watch the world go by.
