FlexPet Mythbuthers – Cat Edition

Cats are mysterious creatures and oftentimes we don’t understand their intentions. Despite their domestication and interaction with humans for hundreds of years, their behavior is still shrouded by numerous myths. Read on to find out what you know or should I say, what you thought you knew about cats.

Dry food is best for your cat

Many people think dry food is the best form of nutrition for your pet. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Your cat’s diet should consist of both wet and dry food as well as whole foods whenever possible.

Cats hate water

While some cats do in fact dislike water, many enjoy baths and even the occasional swim. Running water is especially intriguing to cats as they are drawn to a shower, faucet, and even the garden hose.

Cats always land on their feet

This common misconception has landed numerous cats in the hospital and worse. While cats do have flexible backbones and a good sense of balance, they can easily land wrong and break multiple bones.

Cats do not make good companion animals

Many people have the idea that cats are unloving and generally aloof animals. While they are more independent than dogs, cats can provide the same sense of love and companionship as a dog under the right circumstances.

Declawing is a must if your cat lives in the home

Declawing a cat is a surgical procedure that permanently removes the cats nails from their feet. Claws are essential for a cat especially if they ever wind up outdoors.

Milk is a nutritious treat for your feline

Like many other animals, most cats have difficulty digesting milk. Many cats are lactose intolerant and milk provides little, if any, nutritional value.

    Your information was very helpful., but I could sure use some advice on fat cats. I have 2 tabby cats (they are sisters Sara, Emma) Sara is pretty fat, Emma is getting there…I need advice on what to do please….Also, Sara has a hard time cleaning herself, therefore leaving her butt with dry #2 on it. I try to bath her to help clean her, I do the best I can with the bathing, she acts like I am killing her & finally gets out of the tub soaking wet……It’s funny, she never puts her nails out the whole time but she makes up for it with the screaming….I live on a very fixed income & cannot afford to take her to the vet, although a year ago both girls were spayed…..I can go on & on, but for now I will stop in the hope that you might be able to help me…..Oh the girls are 7yrs old, I have them since they were 7 weeks old……I LOVE THEM SO MUCH & WANT THE BEST FOR THEM…..Thank You for listening, Respecfully, Roberta McLaughlin

      Roberta,
      Are your comments and questions.
      With a multiple cat household the most import thing that you do is to start to severely restrict their food.
      Pick each cat up one at a time and weight the cat and yourself. Then subtract your weight and write down what each of the cats weighs.
      Look at the side of the container and check to see how much you are feeding them per day and make sure it’s no more than the maximum daily recommended quantity.
      In fact, take approximately 33% percent away from that quantity and that would be the maximum amount each cat should get per day.
      Divide this portion into a.m. and p.m. (1/2 AM and 1/2 PM) or a.m. afternoon and p.m feedings ( 1/3 at each interval).
      Feed them in separate bowls and make sure they do not graze off of each other’s food. Put the food down, let them eat, and then take the food away if they don’t finish it.
      It’s really important that they have a wellness examination with your veterinarian at least every 12 months, so please make sure to schedule one soon to address any health concerns you have. Check in your area there are low cost or free veterinary facilities that can help you in your financial situation (look on Google, other).
      Good luck,
      Dr. PM

    Thanks for your very helpful information. I have a 15 yr old cat, Scooter,and he licks his paws until they bleed. He has had cortisone shots which help a little and been on steroids which do not help and have changed his food which she hates. Now the vet wants to put him on atopia. I am afraid after reading the warnings that this would not be good for my cat. It tastes bad and he throws up things he doesn’t like and. He has lost 2 pounds in the last two years and I am fearful.Any advise would be helpful
    Thank you
