Pets often suffer from the same diseases that we do. Cystitis is no exception. Once you get ill with cystitis and do not treat it – how it will come back for any reason. Fighting him can take a long time, but all efforts will be useless at the slightest violation of the requirements.
What is cystitis?
Cystitis is an inflammatory process in the bladder. The disease can be independent or secondary, i.e. to accompany another disease, for example, infection.

What to do if a cat has cystitis?
If your cat shows symptoms of cystitis, contact your veterinarian as soon as possible. He will examine the pet, conduct tests and ultrasound, establish a diagnosis and prescribe treatment.
Cystitis will not go away on its own, it cannot be cured on its own. If only because it is impossible to diagnose this disease at home. Symptoms of cystitis are similar to symptoms of other diseases of the urinary system, and only a specialist can determine the problem.

Do cats need to cut their claws? If so, how often and how to do it right? We will analyze these questions together!
Why should a cat cut its claws?
In the conditions of street living, the claws of cats are updated and sharpened in a natural way: while leaving territorial claw marks, climbing trees, moving around different types of soil and surfaces, overcoming long distances.
Pets generally move much less and walk on softer surfaces more often, therefore, clawpaws alone for an “ideal manicure” are not enough. Strongly grown claws grow into the paw pads and cause the cat not only discomfort, but also severe pain. Clutching the fabric with a claw, the cat can injure itself not only the claws themselves, but also the paws. Kittens are especially prone to such injuries. Not only the cats themselves suffer from long claws, but also the furniture, wallpaper in the apartment, and often the owners themselves. Therefore, the problem can and must be fought. The owners have to correct the situation with the help of special claws and their own skill. Continue reading
Of all the negative habits that cats have, the habit of jumping on the face is the most unpleasant. In the end, it is also dangerous: cat’s claws not only leave scratches on the skin, but can also damage the eye. Why does a cat behave in this way, and the main question: how to wean it from it?
Why does the cat bite on the face?
We want to reassure you: the cat jumps on your face and bites not because it does not like you or wants to offend you, but because it … plays.
Cats live side by side with humans for centuries, and we have already learned to understand them. Nevertheless, some features of their behavior will forever remain a mystery to us. For example, we still won’t know why a cat lying peacefully next to it suddenly comes to mind to throw itself on its face. But you don’t need to know – you must wean it! Continue reading
Age-related changes are characteristic not only of us, but also of our pets. Cats in old age are not as active as before. Their “weak” places are vision, hearing, joints and the cardiovascular system. But a balanced diet, selected in accordance with age, can slow down the aging process and maintain the health of the pet. How to feed an old cat?
At what age is a cat considered elderly? There is no definite answer to this question: it all depends on the characteristics of the breed (large cats age faster), the state of the organism of a particular pet, the conditions of its keeping and the quality of feeding. The better the conditions of detention, the slower the cat ages. Continue reading
