A cat diabetes and health website has launched a new report on what causes stress in cats, and how changes to feline environment can cause behavioural differences, as well as diminish their immune response and harm their health. It is the latest in a series of detailed features on a variety of cat heath topics on subjects like general cat health, cat pregnancy and obesity in cats.
More information can be found on the Pet Cat Health website at: http://petcathealth.info.
The site is an information page designed to give cat owners and cat enthusiasts the chance to discover detailed information on cat health, from general health topics and common diseases in cats, to methods they can use to combat diabetes through diet and alternative medicine.
The Pet Cat Health site’s latest report focuses on the fact that it’s important for cats to have routine and predictability in their lives, and notes that even slight changes to this routine and environment can cause spikes in stress levels.
Experts emphasise that when cats experience disruptions to the normal everyday routine of their lives, the ensuing stress can trigger negative effects in their health, and for this reason, it’s important for cat owners to keep an eye on their pets when these disruptions are unavoidable.
Pet Cat Health explains that, just as is the way with people, a small amount of stress can be a driving force that brings further dynamics and action to life. When stress is kept under control, it offers a challenge and a change of pace, however when stress levels rise too much, the body’s reserves decrease and people become prone to illness.
The same is true of cats, which, when exposed to high levels of stress, can become aggressive and develop other problematic behaviours, as well as other effects like lethargy and depression.
Among the possible contributors to feline stress in the Pet Cat Health Report include re-homing, remodeling the house, having a baby, or frequent visitors. The report emphasises the importance of trying to make changes as gradually as possible in an attempt to avoid stress, and underscores how owners should pay close attention to their pets.
