Hi My Cat Has Just Turned Four This Month And I Love Him He Always Cuddles Whith Me Whith My Baby Blanket He Goes On Top Of It And Starts Kida Licking It And Starts Purring Why Doed He Do This He Has Been Doing It Scince He Was 3 Weeks Old But He Has Started To Slow Down A Little He Does Not Play And Run Around Any More Like When He Was A Kitten How Do I Get Him Active Again
If your pet is more like a couch potato than a curious cat on the go, it's time to pump her up. Play. Experts agree that some of us should do it more. It improves health, enhances appearance and adds a sense of mental well-being. And it only takes a few minutes a day. Exercise. You are your cat's own personal trainer.
"Exercise benefits felines with increased overall health, including a longer lifespan," says veterinarian Carol Tice, DVM of the Cat Clinic of Cary, North Carolina. "It relieves stress, reduces aggression and keeps cats alert. Exercise just makes cats feel better." A feline fitness plan may seem strange to you, but there are ways to get your cat in condition.
It may sound like work, but to cats, exercise is just plain fun. One of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to keep your kitty fit is to play with her. Just 15 to 30 minutes a day of play can help keep your cat in shape and strengthen the bond between the two of you. Here are some tips to get you and your cat in the habit of regular exercise:
* Start slowly! Build up to 30 minutes of exercise a day, depending on your individual cat.
* Break play sessions into 5- to 10-minute segments throughout the day.
* Choose safe cat toys. Avoid string or other items she can swallow.
* Never force a cat to do an activity. Let her decide.
* If you feel like your cat is getting too wound up, stop playing.
* Play with your cat before meals, not immediately after.
* Have water available at all times.
* Use praise and petting instead of treats to keep her interested.
There are hundreds of cat toys on the market today as well as lots of low- and no-cost toys you can make yourself. "Cats get bored," says Tice. "Have a good variety of toys, but alternate which ones you leave out."
However, even the best toy won't get your cat active without you. Cats like interaction. Although the toy is part of that, having a playmate will double her interest and the time she spends exercising.

A Neat Trick
Although cats won't necessarily perform tricks like a dog, they can play various games that will keep them on the move and in shape. It doesn't take much effort on your part. For example:
* Toss a small ball, a wad of paper or a piece of kibble across the floor for your cat to run after. (Don't expect the kibble to come back, though!)
* Play tag! Romp with your cat across the floor or up the stairs.
* Many cats love to play hide and stalk. You can take turns being the prey and the predator.You can even play if you're just lying on the couch.
* Consider adding a cat tree for jumping and climbing. Your pet will get exercise even when you're gone.
* Just 15 to 30 minutes a day of play can keep your cat in shape, while strengthening the bond between you.

Walk This Way
Cats can, indeed, be trained to walk with a leash. Sometimes, walking outdoors is especially good for apartment-bound pets. It gives them room to stretch their legs. It's also an excellent way for owners and their felines to spend time together.
Getting your cat used to walking on a leash will take time, patience and the right equipment. The process will be easier if you follow these tips:
* Be sure that your cat's harness is secure and fits properly.
* Make sure she's wearing an up-to-date identification tag.
* Before venturing outdoors, map out a route. Select an area for strolling that's free from dogs, traffic, loud noises and other dangers.

The Buddy System
Sometimes, the best exercise comes from a fellow cat. Cats who are left alone during the day can benefit greatly from a companion feline. Two cats will amuse themselves for hours playing games of their own invention. Older, more sedate cats can be jump-started into exercise with the addition of a kitten to the household. Just be careful to keep the overweight adult cat out of the high-calorie kitten food, warns Tice.
Children also make wonderful playmates with a few restrictions. Kids younger than 12 should be supervised. Teach them to play gently using cat toys, never their bare hands, and to stop playing when their pet becomes tired or over-stimulated.

Just Do It
Regardless of the type of exercise you choose for your cat, make sure she enjoys it and benefits from it. Exercise can strengthen muscles, increase heart rate and rev the metabolism. Felines in top condition have fewer health problems. Conditioning also helps keep your cat mentally alert and reduces stress and destructive behavior something that will benefit you both. The key is you! Choose an exercise routine that easily fits into your life. Finding extra time these days is hard, so couple your own activities with your cat's conditioning.
Don't set unrealistic goals. Often, putting a simple twist on your normal activities will be just right for your pet. Tie a length of cord to the back loop of your jeans, then attach a scrap of fabric to the loose end, letting it drag on the floor, and do the housework that way, suggests Tice.Your kitty will have a ball! The possibilities are endless. And, just like humans, take your cat to the doctor before starting any exercise or diet program. With regular conditioning, your sedentary pet will soon be feline fine!
24 Hour Cat Hospital Long Island Ny Urgent?
We Recently Came Across A Cat With A Huge Gash On It'S Shoulder. I Wanna Do As Much As I Can To Help. We (My Friend And I) Did Everything We Could. Meaning We Call Every Single Number In The Book, We Called The Cops Twice, And Talked To The Owner.
She Is A Hoader And Is Very Indenial So She Denied The Cat Having Any Injury. We Are Going To Do What We Pretty Much Have No Other Option To Do And Take Matters Into Our Own Hands.
We'Re Going To Get The Cat And Try To Take It To An Animal Hospital But We Need Help Finding One.
All That We Have Called Are Either Closed, Or Will Not Take An Animal At The Time. We Really Need Help Finding The Following.
~ An Animal Shelter That Is Currently Open.
~ Around Ridge, Middle Island, Coram, Or Somewhere Along Those Lines (Long Island Ny)
~ And Most Likey A Place That Will Allow Us To Just Drop The Animal Off And Keep It There.
If You Know Anything That May Be Of Any Help To Us Please Please Help This Is Really Urgent. Thank You.
In the source box i have a website for you. I searched Long Island, NY animal hospitals and found 10 of them near you. All of them have phone numbers. Only one of them (the first one) is open 24 hours. Good Luck with the cat. Hope you can get it to the hospital!! If not make sure to clean the wound and bandage it until you can get medical help..
P.S. even if the hospital won't keep the cat... you can always keep it for yourself.. or bring it to a no kill animal shelter nearby you..
Help!! Injured Cat No Animal Hospital Open!!!?
Just Found A Cat, Open Wound On Its Front Left Paw. Circular About A Quarter In In Diameter. It Is Swollen Looks Like Maybe An Abcess Cat Is A Stray And Limping Very Badly It Must Be Pretty Painful. No Animal Hospital Is Open Right Now. Should I Bandage It Or Let It Keep Licking It And Taking Care Of It Itself?
I would say leave it unbandaged let him lick it and let the air get to it . He would probably tear the bandage off anyway without an e-collar
But the cat does need treatment tomorrow to drain the abcess and probably antibiotics. Can you get the cat and keep it indoors so you can get it to a hospital in the AM?
As far as what you can do for him now, give him some fresh water and feed him. (if by chance he is extremely emaciated, then only give him some small amount of food like boiled chicken, very bland. and not much at once)
The first aid thing would be to flush the wound with sterile saline solution.. BUT since this is a stray cat you have just found and you dont know each other, you should be very careful in doing anything that might even scare him . He is probably already in pain and stressed, and if you add the stress of being restrained etc, he might bite out of fear. Cat bites can be serious and then the cat won't be the only one needing an A/B shot. Plus you don't even know if this cat has been exposed to rabies. So it may be best to leave the medical treatment to the professionals. In any case, when handling him you should be very careful, wear a long sleeved jacket and gloves and preferably have help from a friend. If needed you can wrap the cat in a thick towel.
But really the safer choice would be to keep the cat confined overnight and tomorrow enlist the help of a friend if needed to get him into a carrier or cage and get him to the vet.
P.S. In case you are considering it, I would not put anything else on there like Neosporin since the cat keeps licking it.
Is My Desire To Become A Vet For Wildlife Animals Impractical?
I'Ve Been Thinking Of Becoming A Vet, And Love Wildlife, So Have Been Thinking About Becoming A Wildlife Vet. However, Is This Impractical? My Family Isn'T Exactly Rolling In Money Either, So Is It Impractical Schooling Wise As Well?
It is possible to become a wildlife vet, but these jobs are hard to find. Don't let that discourage you though, if it is what you want to do! There are other jobs working with wildlife if you decide not to go the route of vet school. If you do go to vet school, you may find out that you like some other area of vet med even more than wildlife and end up doing something completely different, but something you love! That's the nice thing about vet med, there are so many opportunities and different ways to go! Vet school is expensive, but you will be considered independent from your parents and will be able to get loans to cover the cost, so if it is what you really want, don't let the money discourage you! Here's a little about becoming a vet:
Most people who go to vet school have a bachelor's degree, but it is not required to get into vet school. There are only 28 veterinary schools in the country (There are also several international schools that are AVMA accredited) and entrance to these is highly competitive, so not having a bachelor's can make it more difficult.
The schools' requirements vary slightly, so look into the specific school you are interested in first- I have included a link in my sources to a descriptor page with requirements for each school. Most require biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, physics, math, and English. You can complete the courses you need at any college that offers them, including a community college if money is an issue. Schools also require a certain amount of experience with animals (having a pet does not count in this!) and experience working with a veterinarian. You will also need to take the GRE or MCAT before applying. This may seem like a lot, but the schools want to know you can handle the course load in vet school and know about the career. Tip: keep a record of your activities, hours, and honors- you can put things on your vet apps as far back as high school!
Where you apply depends a lot on where you live. Vet schools reserve a certain number of seats for students who are residents of the state the vet school is located in. This is where your best chance of being accepted is, but you can also apply to out of state schools. The Veterinary Medical College Application Service handles the main application. Most schools also have a supplemental application which you must get from the school itself. Most schools have interviews, but some do not.
Once you make it through the application process and are accepted, (yay!) the hard work begins. Veterinary school is four years. It is medical school, but for multiple species. Typically the structure is three years of classroom work and one year of clinical training. Each program is a little different, check into the individual schools' websites for more information. Making it through vet school is difficult. You will be in class for 8-9 hours each day during the week and will need to spend evenings and weekends studying. During clinical rotations you may be required to be at the hospital at all hours. You can also do an internship or residency after graduation to become more specialized.
Please also take cost into account when planning your undergraduate course work! The average vet student in 2010 graduated with about $130,000 in debt. Vet school tuition alone (this does not include books, room, board, and other expenses) ranges from the cheapest being $13,000 (North Carolina, in state students) to almost $60,000 (Ohio, out of state students) per year. The majority of financing is going to be in loans, which are all unsubsidized starting this year, so interest will be accruing while you are in school. There are not a lot of grants and scholarships for professional students the way there are for undergraduate students.
The average starting salary for a vet is between $43,000 and $71,000 depending on what area you are going in to. The median annual wage for veterinarians was $82,000 in 2010. Veterinarians have the worst debt to salary ratio of any of the professional school graduates (lawyers, physicians, dentists, pharmacists, etc,.) There are no veterinarians I know of who got into the career because they wanted to make lots of money. For more information on salary statistics and the career see the link to the Bureau of Labor information in my sources.
If you are still interested in becoming a veterinarian after reading all of this then fantastic! A good way to start getting a feel for the career is to call some local vets and ask if you could spend an afternoon shadowing them! There are also other careers with animals that you may not have considered that would be just as rewarding- I have put a link to a website about animal related careers in my sources, take a look at that!
Best of luck to you!!
I Can'T Afford To Get Vet Meds For 4 Animals. Home Safe Remedys For Cats And Dogs For Rice Looking Worms?
Those are tapeworm segments, not roundworm as someone suggested. Not only do your animals need a safe and effective wormer for *at least* tape worm they need a safe and effective flea treatment as well. There are no home remedies, only appropriate wormers. Over the counter crap is a poor use of your money, as many of those things are harmful or ineffective. If you don't have money to go to the vet for proper treatment, surely you don't have money for an emergency vet visit from flea product poisoning. Your best bet is either suck it up and get them to the vet to be properly treated, or call you local shelters to see if any of them offer low-cost basic vet services. Many of them can provide you safe and effective wormers and flea treatments at their cost.
