We love National Cat Health Month because it reminds us to give extra love to our sweet kitties and also serves as a great way to celebrate our furry friends beyond just posting cat memes. Every cat parent should spend the month an extra focus on their cat’s physical and emotional well-being, and educate themselves on the signs of unhealthy behavior or illness.

5 CAT FACTS THAT MIGHT SURPRISE YOU
Some Greens Are Toxic
Keep lilies, azaleas, mistletoe, holly, out of the house as they are all toxic to cats.
Could Your Cat be Lactose-Intolerant?
Surprisingly, typical dairy milk isn’t always great for cats. If your cat is lactose-intolerant, they’ll get awful diarrhea from it. They’ll also have a greater chance of obesity if they continue to be given typical dairy milk. However, Raw Goat Milk, which is lactose-free, can help with digestion and immune health.
Make Sure They Are Happy
Cats can in fact, become depressed. Watch out for changes in vocalization, appetite, or any other abnormal behavior.
Cats Often Hide Illness
These tricky pets often hide when sick or injured – it’s a natural survival instinct. If you notice odd behavior or hiding, take your cat into the vet.
Declawing your cat is cruel and viewed as dangerous to their health and safety. Luckily, there are many other ways to get your cat to stop scratching – look around online or ask your vet.
