Your Cats Health
For piece of mind and the cats health, there are a few simple checks you can perform on your kitten at home each week. Watch how your kitten walks and ensure it is distributing its weight equally on all of four legs.
If your kitten has a limp or avoids putting weight on a foot there may be a problem with that foot or leg. Looking into your kittens eyes can also tell you a lot about its health.
A cat's eyes should be clear and not clouded with no discharges around them. Any small bit of discharge around your cats eyes can easily and gently be cleaned away. Check again the next day, if the problem continues it could be a possible eye infection and you will need to see the vet again.
Check your kitten's nose and ears in the same way as they should be discharge free and healthy looking.
Finally, check the kitten's teeth, ensure your kitten hasn't lost any teeth and that they are clean and white. Heavy discoloration may be another sign of infection, in which a trip to the vet is needed.
While stroking your cat check for any bumps or lumps that might have appeared. If you find anything out of the ordinary its always best to get the vet to check it out.
Also look at your kitten's fur. Is the fur silky and healthy looking or is the fur greasy or dull looking? If the fur is dull looking, your cat may not be getting the correct nutrition it needs.
All of these checks can be done with in ten minutes and can help ensure you have a beautiful healthy cat.
