FeLV - Feline Leukemia Virus

The Feline Leukemia Virus is considered the leading viral killer of cats in the U.S. today. Yet only 2 to 3% of the cats in the U.S. have this disease. Of course, the percentage is much higher among feral, stray and pet indoor-outdoor cats - those known to be high risk.

Top Myths and Facts About Cats

The world of cat lovers, particularly those who frequent the Internet, abounds with myths and misconceptions about cats. This list addresses the most common of those myths and states the true facts about each misconception.

As an example, who, among my reading audience, believes that cats are low maintenance pets who can take care of themselves? Raise your hand.


Neurological Disorders in Cats

Cats are subject to several different kinds of neurological disorders, some with similar symptoms, and different causes, and others unique to themselves. As an example, seizures in cats can have several different causes, including brain tumors, inflammatory diseases affecting the central nervous system, or parasitic infections, such as Toxoplasmosis.

May Honors Tuxedo Cats

I can't believe that May is here already, and I'm looking forward to selecting all the Cat Pictures of the Week from submittals to the Tuxedo Cats Show and Tell gallery. Tuxedo cats' striking colors: all black, with a white bib and sometimes white boots, have almost become a classic among cat lovers, and "tuxies" are favored worldwide. Don Pedro, pictured here, looks splendid with his white bib accenting his glossy black coat.
