Melena in Cats

Melena in cats can be a life threatening illness and it is something that should not be ignored. If it exists over a period of time or if it becomes worse, it could cost your cat its life. The first inclination of many cat owners is that it is simply something that your cat may have eaten and tend to ignore it; but ignoring it could place your cat in severe jeopardy. Melena is a situation where digested blood is found in your cat’s feces and as a result the stools will appear black and tarry. It is often confused for Hematochezia, which is red or fresh blood in the stool, but it is a completely different set of conditions.

Anorexia in cats is a symptom and not an actual disease. While it is often caused by an underlying illness it can also be the result your cat is recovering from an illness. However, there are several cases in which your cat may just be a very picky eater. If it is a case of your pet losing their appetite and just not wanting to eat, there are several remedies that may help to jump start your cat to begin eating again.

Cats Spraying

What do people mean when they talk about cats spraying? Perhaps you have witnessed this scene: Your lovely cat backs up to a vertical surface such as a wall, window, or piece of furniture with its tail lifted, and directs a bit of what appears to be urine in a fine spray on to the area. This action is normally accompanied by a strong shaking movement of the tail, at times striding with the back feet, and a look of strong concentration on the face of the cat. Cats spraying should not be thought of as a litter box crisis. It is actually a significant part of non-spoken communication between cats. Spraying helps them to create identity markers and assure other cats whose place is whose. Basically cats mark their areas by means of the cats spraying a small bit of urine for them to deposit pheromones. Pheromones are a kind of substance produced by animals which mainly served as a sort of chemical communication. Cats, in general, have pheromones that are veiled in different areas of their body. By sending signals to other cats through spraying, they give off information such as their age, health, territories, and other facts
