Tell Me Information About Cats Facts?
Who Ever Tells The More Information He Gets The Most Points Okkk Soo Doo Fastt
Cats have five toes on each front paw, but only four toes on each back paw.
Cats have true fur, in that they have both an undercoat and an outer coat.
Contrary to popular belief, the cat is a social animal. A pet cat will respond and answer to speech , and seems to enjoy human companionship.
If left to her own devices, a female cat may have three to seven kittens every four months. This is why population control using neutering and spaying is so important.
Kittens are born with both eyes and ears closed. When the eyes open, they are always blue at first. They change color over a period of months to the final eye color.
When well treated, a cat can live twenty or more years.
A cat cannot see directly under its nose. This is why the cat cannot seem to find tidbits on the floor.
The gene in cats that causes the orange coat color is sexed linked, and is on the X sex chromosome. This gene may display orange or black. Thus, as female cat with two X chromosomes may have orange and black colors in its coat. A male, with only one X chromosome, can have only orange or black, not both.
If a male cat is both orange and black it is ( besides being extremely rare ) sterile. To have both the orange and the black coat colors, the male cat must have all or part of both female X chromosomes. This unusual sex chromosome combination will render the male cat sterile.
Cats have AB blood groups just like people.
A form of AIDS exists in cats.
Siamese coat color and crossed eyes may be caused by the same gene.
The color of the points in Siamese cats is heat related. Cool areas are darker.
Siamese kittens are born white because of the heat inside the mother's uterus before birth. This heat keeps the kittens' hair from darkening on the points.
There are many myths about cats. Check this page to see some of them discussed, and to find out the true facts.
Though rare, cats can contract canine heart worms.
People who are allergic to cats are actually allergic to cat saliva or to cat dander. If the resident cat is bathed regularly the allergic people tolerate it better.
Studies now show that the allergen in cats is related to their scent glands. Cats have scent glands on their faces and at the base of their tails. Entire male cats generate the most scent. If this secretion from the scent glands is the allergen, allergic people should tolerate spayed female cats the best.
Cats do not think that they are little people. They think that we are big cats. This influences their behavior in many ways.
Cats are subject to gum disease and to dental caries. They should have their teeth cleaned by the vet or the cat dentist once a year.
Cats, especially older cats, do get cancer. Many times this disease can be treated successfully.
Most cats have no eyelashes.
Many cats cannot properly digest cow's milk. Milk and milk products give them diarrhea.
Cats lack a true collarbone. Because of this lack, cats can generally squeeze their bodies through any space they can get their heads through. You may have seen a cat testing the size of an opening by careful measurement with the head.
Cats with white fur and skin on their ears are very prone to sunburn. Frequent sunburns can lead to skin cancer. Many white cats need surgery to remove all or part of a cancerous ear. Preventive measures include sunscreen, or better, keeping the cat indoors.
Cats can get tapeworms from eating fleas. These worms live inside the cat forever, or until they are removed with medication. They reproduce by shedding a link from the end of their long bodies. This link crawls out the cat's anus, and sheds hundreds of eggs. These eggs are injested by flea larvae, and the cycles continues. Humans may get these tapeworms too, but only if they eat infected fleas. Cats with tapeworms should be dewormed by a veterinarian.
Cats can get tapeworms from eating mice. If your cat catches a mouse it is best to take the prize away from it.
There are tiny, parasitic worms that can live in a cat's stomach. These worms cause frequent vomiting.
Many people fear catching a protozoan disease, Toxoplasmosis, from cats. This disease can cause illness in the human, but more seriously, can cause birth defects in the unborn. Toxoplasmosis is a common disease, sometimes spread through the feces of cats. It is caused most often from eating raw or rare beef. Pregnant women and people with a depressed immune system should not touch the cat litter box. Other than that, there is no reason that these people have to avoid cats.
Cats have a full inner-eyelid, or nictitating membrane. This inner-eyelid serves to help protect the eyes from dryness and damage. When the cat is ill, the inner-eyelid will frequently close partially, making it visible to the observer.
You can tell a cat's mood by looking into its eyes. A frightened or excited cat will have large, round pupils. An angry cat will have narrow pupils. The pupil size is related as much to the cat's emotions as to the degree of light.
A cat is pregnant for about 58-65 days. This is roughly two months.
Information from a Reader:
Regarding the cat spraying problem. Ordinary white vinegar is good to neutralize the odor. Also there is a product calle d "ODO BAN" which is anti-bacterial,virucidal and eliminates odors (it is biodegrable) it is made by the Clean Control Corp. and their # is 800-841-3904. Having 6 cats and 3 dogs....we have given it quite a test! Good luck!

PLEASE ... don't let antifreeze leak from their car if their cats run wild, or even if there are stray cats running around the neighborhood. Granted stray cats can be a pain in the butt sometimes, and I'm sure we stray humans can be as well, but no animal deserves to suffer a slow and painful death like antifreeze would cause them. This would be greatly appreciated if you would do this for me and it help save some kitties in the world.
Thanks in advance,

can you tell me why a cat will stand and lift it paws up in down in one place on your body. Almost like marching in place.
This behavior in cats is left over from kittenhood, when they kneaded their mother's belly to help the milk flow. Some cats will actually knead and drool when they are petted. The kneading or marching means that the cat is happy.
The two most common problems with cats are aggression, and refusing to use the litter box. Both of these problems are usually caused by social conflict among cats. To have the fewest problems, have only one cat at a time. The more cats you introduce into a house, the more likely you are to have difficulties with the cats.
If you have a cat and want to have another cat, it will be easiest to introduce a female kitten. An elderly cat that is alone, however, should not be bothered with another cat. Let it rest in peace. Bringing a new cat into a household is always very stressful for all the cats concerned.
Unlike humans and dogs, cats do not suffer a lot from loneliness. It is a mistake to project our social feelings onto our cats. Cats are social to a degree, but they are far more concerned with territorial issues than we can even imagine.
Purring: To purr, cats use extra tissue in the larynx (voice box). This tiuue vibrates when they purr.
Is There A Dentist For Cats?
My Cat Had Lost One Of Its Lower Fangs Due To One Of It Encounters With It Old Nemesis, Because Of That It Started To Drool Alot And Hard For It To Eat Normally. So Is There Anyway To Replace The Lost Fang?
Hi there...dental disorders can be treated by a veterinarian since many cats suffer from periodontal disorders. Once a tooth is lost it cannot be restored. The drooling is a result of the periodontal disorder: http://www.manhattancats.com/Articles/dr...

Should My Dog Have Surgery?
I Have A Yellow Lab That We Adopted About 4 Years Ago. I Am Unsure Of His Age, But I Believe He Is Over 10Yrs. His Name Is Gus. Gus Has Developed A Baseball Or Larger Size Tumor On His Back Above His Back Legs. I Took Him To The Vet Today And The Vet Believes Without Testing, That It Is A Cancerous Tumor. It Got That Big In About A Month. Gus Is Scheduled For Surgery On Friday, But I Have Known Of Cases Where People Take Their Dogs To Get The Tumor Removed And The Dog Never Recovers Or It Spreads To Other Areas. My Question Is: Should I Let The Tumor Go Since He Is Old Or Should I Get It Removed? Thanks.
Wow--tough question. It is impossible, of course, to say what it could be. Even after surgical removal, if it is malignant cancer, it may have already spread elsewhere. It could certainly show up elsewhere or it could recur in the same spot. However, if Gus is otherwise healthy, removal of the growth will be his best chance for a long lifespan--even if he is 10, he could have 2 to 5 years left in him.
If you do decide to have the surgery done, make certain that the vet sends off the growth or samples of it for histopathology. This will determine what it is--you can NOT tell just by looking at it! I can't tell you how many abnormal pieces of animals have ended up in the trash--and then, weeks to months to years later the animal is dying because the cancer was not diagnosed properly the first time, when it could have been treated.
Anesthesia in an older dog is only slightly more risky. Your vet may want to perform pre-anesthetic bloodwork just to make sure that organ function is normal. Even if it isn't, it usually just means an adjustment to the anesthesia protocol.
Either decision--to do nothing, or to continue to surgery/diagnosis/treatment--is ok. Don't feel bad if you decide to do nothing. It does depend on your finances, too--if it is cancer, chemotherapy may be an option, and there are different protocols; most veterinary internists or oncologists can work with your financial situation and how far you are willing to go. Or, you can just have the mass removed and wait and see what happens. It is a difficult decision. Please ask many questions and understand all your options. You may want to ask for a second opinion or referral to a veterinary specialist. At our clinic, our doctors are happy to talk with a client and discuss the options and prognosis, then if the client wants to think things over that is fine--no pressure.
Feel free to email me if you have any questions, I'll try to help you out. Good luck.
So, My Dog Has Surgery Today For This Eyes. The Problem Being His Eyes Are Stuck The Wrong Way And His Eye Lashes Are Scratching His Eyeball Making It Hurt. He Comes Home Tonight, But Obviously Im Really Worried About Him.
Is Surgery On A Dog Safe?
Sounds like your dog is having entropion surgery. I had a male dog undergo this same surgery a number of years ago, and he came through it just fine. It is a relatively quick procedure.
There are always risks with any animal (or human!) and anesthesia, but I'm sure your vet is taking every necessary precaution.
Good luck with your dog!
Hi, I'M Doing Research On Veterinary Technicians And Their Job Specifically. I Need To Know What Classes Are Necessary To Become One, What Degrees I Would Need, Education Required, Skills, How I Would Become Certified. Everything That I Need To Know About This Job Because I Want To Have This As My Career. Can Anyone Help Me? I Need To Know Everything Asap.
Please And Thank You
Veterinary technicians are required (in most states) to have a 2 year degree in veterinary technology from an AVMA accredited veterinary technology program, to have passed the Veterinary Technician National Exam and a state exam in order to be credentialed. They are also generally required to attend a set number of continuing education courses each year to keep up with changes in veterinary medicine. Veterinary technicians are educated in veterinary anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, animal husbandry, surgical assisting, anesthesia, medical nursing, diagnostics such as radiology and ultrasonography, clinical pathology, parasitology, medical terminology and record keeping, biological collection and sample handling and preperation, etc. They can also specialize in areas such as emergency and critical care, internal medicine, anesthesia, dentistry, behavior and equine nursing.
The American Veterinary Medical Association maintains a list of accredited degree programs on their website: https://www.avma.org/ProfessionalDevelop...
The daily workload can vary greatly depending on the type of practice you work in and the area of the country you are in. Most often the workload will be variable in any practice--some days will be like a wild rollercoaster ride while others are so boring and slow that you have a hard time staying awake.
A very general list of things that a veterinary technician would do would include collecting patient histories, collect biological samples (blood, urine, feces, etc), running diagnostic tests, monitoring and medicating hospitalized animals, assisting in surgery, administering and monitoring anesthesia, performing dental cleanings, providing treatment for outpatients as prescribed by the attending veterinarian, filling prescriptions, answering client questions on preventative medicine, disease processes, medications, etc, maintaining inventory, caring for surgical and medical equipment such as anesthesia machines, taking radiographs, entering medical records, etc.
Veterinary technicians earn between $23,000 and $48,000 a year based upon the most recent survey published. The state you live in, the type of facility you work in and your experience all play into what is typical income where you are. The low range is typically in the areas where veterinary technicians aren't required by law to be credentialed.
Credentialing is the recognition of advanced education or training and is granted in most states either through a state governing board, state veterinary professional association or state veterinary technical association. Registration, licensure and certification are all types of credentials and which one is granted just depends on who is granting it and what title is used in that state. In many states you cannot use the title "veterinary technician" or perform certain tasks unless you are a credentialed veterinary technician. Because laws governing veterinary technicians vary from state to state, you should contact your state veterinary technician association or veterinary licensing board to learn about the specific requirements for credentialing in your state.
Before enrolling in a veterinary technology program, it is a good idea to volunteer or take a job at a veterinary hospital to see what the job of a veterinary technician really entails. Many people think that it will suit them but find out differently once they start school. Having personal experience in a veterinary facility will also help you to excel in your classes by giving you real-world application for what you are learning.
Also, contact your state veterinary technician association. They can give you detailed advice on the requirements for being a veterinary technician in your state and also help you to choose an appropriate school
What Is Pre-Veterinary?
I've Been Researching Different Colleges, Trying To Make Up My Mind Which One I'd Like To Attend. Or, More Importantly, What I'd Like To Major In. I've Found That Several Colleges In My Area Offer Pre-Veterinary. What Is This? What Type Of Education Is Required For A Vet?
Pre-Veterinary is classes/courses you need to take before you can apply to a Veterinarian school. However, Veterinarian school requirements can be meet with other degrees, such as Zoology, it doesn't necessarily have to be met by a pre-vet program.
Preparation Advice -
Students interested in a career in veterinary medicine should begin their preparation by doing well in general science and biology in junior high school. They need to take a strong science, math, and biology program in high school. To be considered for admission to a college of veterinary medicine, a student must first complete undergraduate preveterinary medical coursework, which usually includes three to four years of college study, with specific course requirements. Each college of veterinary medicine establishes its own preveterinary requirements. Typical requirements include basic language and communication skills, social sciences, humanities, mathematics, chemistry, and the biological and physical sciences.
Preveterinary Coursework -
Preveterinary coursework can be completed at many colleges and universities, including those at which the veterinary medical schools are located. Students should check with the veterinary college to which they plan to apply to be sure they take all required courses. They should also be certain that credits from the preveterinary courses they take at the school of their choice are acceptable to the veterinary colleges.
Completion of a preveterinary program does not guarantee admission to a college of veterinary medicine. Admission to veterinary school is highly competitive. Applicants usually have grades of "B" or better, especially in the sciences and may be required by the veterinary school admission policies to take appropriate examinations such as the Graduate Record Examination. Most colleges give preference to candidates with animal or veterinary related experience. The number of qualified applicants who are admitted to veterinary colleges nationwide varies from year to year, but the average acceptance rate is approximately 43%.
See the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges Web site for additional information.
The Phases of Professional Study -
In most colleges of veterinary medicine, the professional program comprises two phases. During the first phase, preclinical sciences, such as anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, and microbiology are emphasized. Most of the students' time is spent in classroom and laboratory study.
The second phase of professional study is principally clinical. Students learn the principles of medicine and surgery in the classroom and through hands-on clinical experience. Students learn to apply their knowledge in a clinical setting under the supervision of graduate veterinarians on the faculty. In the clinics, students treat animals, perform surgery, and deal with owners who use the school's clinical services.
The Clinical Curriculum -
The clinical curriculum includes study of infectious and noninfectious diseases, diagnostic and clinical pathology, obstetrics, radiology, clinical medicine, anesthesiology, and surgery. Students also study public health, preventive medicine, toxicology, clinical nutrition, professional ethics, and business practices.
The Academic Experience -
Veterinary medical study is difficult. Students learn about many different animals and diseases, and become skilled in surgical techniques and many laboratory and diagnostic procedures.
A typical veterinary medical student spends about 4,000 hours in classroom, laboratory, and clinical study. Because the time required for instruction absorbs most of a student's day, many evening and weekend hours are spent doing reading assignments, library research, and independent study.
