Cat might got sick because of Stress

We all know that stress can lead to illness for us human beings. But it's not just people who gets sick from stress. Do you now that cat also experience stress? And it also make them ill.

In a three-year study, Ohio State University researchers found healthy cats showed signs of illness when stressed and sick cats became healthier when stress levels were reduced. Twelve of 32 cats in the 3-year study were healthy and 20 had FIC, a chronic pain syndrome that affects the cat's bladder. Lower urinary tract diseases occur in about 1.5 percent of house cats, the researchers said, and a lot of pet owners can't stand the messes that come with them. As a result, they say millions of sick cats are euthanised or turned over to shelters every year.

To cats, stress might be unwanted attention, a dirty litter box or strange noises. So owners and vets must look at a sick cat's environment before deciding on a euthanasia. They also have to be educated about managing and maintaining an enriched environment. Having a pet is like having a baby, there are responsibilities and obligations to consider. So if you're planning to have a pet make sure you're responsible enough for them.
