The new Argylle film has been released in the UK and the cat depicted in this film is one with folded ears - a Scottish Fold 🎥😿

Although this cat is animated, sadly this means that there will likely be a rise in the number of Scottish Fold cats bred and purchased in the UK and other countries where this breed is available, but did you know these cats experience serious health issues?

If you think this breed of cat looks cute and are thinking about getting one to add to your family, please reconsider and bear in mind the following:

😿Scottish Fold cats have a genetic mutation that causes the cartilage in their ears to fold over, but that same genetic mutation affects the cartilage in the joints, causing a serious bone and cartilage disorder known as ‘osteochondrodysplasia’.

😿Osteochondroplasia causes severe and painful joint disease, which can impact the cat’s mobility. Several joints are affected in their limbs and tail, some of them completely fuse restricting normal movement and balance. The hindlimbs are usually most severely affected, their paws can be splayed and their tail stiff and rigid.

😿Due to their condition, Scottish Fold cats may not be able to perform normal cat behaviours, such as climbing, playing, grooming or accessing their litter tray easily. Affected cats can have a reduced quality of life due to this and chronic pain.

😿All Scottish Fold cats are affected by this gene - although there may be variations in the severity of their symptoms.

For more information about Scottish Fold cats and to see just how severely affected they are take a look at this International Cat Care webpage or this 2007 study - you can see how thickened their joints are on the x-rays 👇👇

It’s a subtle difference, but Winston here has been on a mission to gain some weight. Winston is a British long hair, which are a breed known for their large stature. Winston sadly had an accident and has been struggling to maintain any weight since!

Until now.. as you can see, he’s looking much healthier and happier in the second photo, and his owner has confirmed he can now zoomie up to 8 times a day!!

It’s easy to focus on on an overweight cat, but sometimes our feline friends can need a little help going the other way 🩷

The first photo is 3 months ago, and the second is today! Go Winston, we love you!

Joining in ? We can make our own dietary choices, but cats are obligate carnivores, meaning they must eat meat to survive, and we should respect their species-specific needs.

The safety, efficacy and welfare implications of plant-based diets for cats are still being researched, so make sure you are feeding your cat a healthy and balanced diet, full of the nutrition they need, based on their age, lifestyle, breed and supporting any medical conditions they may have.

Chat to your veterinary clinic team if you have any questions or concerns about your cat’s nutrition.

The rain has finally stopped here in West Sussex and it has been replaced with a nice cold snap this week.

With this always comes the anxiety to emergency veterinary practices of the risk of antifreeze.

Often as the cold weather sets in, many of us are reminded to top up the antifreeze in our car. Antifreeze (ethylene glycol) is highly toxic and just a few laps of this chemical can be deadly to a pet. Almost all of these cases occur from a cat lapping a puddle containing spilt anti-freeze.

If topping up your car, please take great care ensuring any spillages are immediately cleaned up. Under no circumstances use anti freeze in garden water features or near wildlife.

Symptoms to look out for include

Lethargy
Vomiting
Ataxia (wobbly legs)
Seizures
Kidney failure and death

If you are concerned your cat may have ingested anti freeze, please call us immediately. Calls answered by qualified vets and nurses.

Keeping Your Cat Warm Over Winter 🐾❄️

As the nights get darker and temperatures drop, it's crucial to ensure your furry friend stays cozy during the colder, harsher weather. 🌬️ Here are some tips to keep your cat safe and warm this winter season:

Indoor Comfort for Seniors and Unwell Cats:

Older or unwell cats may struggle with the cold, so provide a litter tray indoors with their preferred litter.

Place the tray in a quiet area to encourage use and, in multi-cat households, consider having trays in different areas to prevent competition.

Regularly change soiled litter for cleanliness.

Monitor Eating and Exercise Habits:

Cats may eat more during colder times to stay warm, resulting in less exercise.

Monitor their weight and body size to ensure they stay healthy.

Indoor Enrichment:

Keep indoor cats stimulated with:

Cat climbing tower 🏰

Cat scratch post 🐾

Catnip 🌿

Puzzle ball 🎳

Variety of cat toys 🧸

This promotes exercise and mental engagement.

Outdoor Safety Measures:

Ensure outdoor cats are microchipped with up-to-date details.

Wipe paws after exposure to salt/grit, preventing ingestion and potential harm.

Regularly check paws for injuries, frostbite, or dermatitis caused by road grit.

Knowing When to Bring Them In:

Before driving, check your car's wheel arches and engine bay for hiding cats seeking warmth.

If your cat takes longer to return, they may be at risk of no access to water and food.

Drive carefully at night to avoid potential accidents with animals.

Wrapping Things Up:

Provide blankets and a bed in a draught-free area.

Move your cat to a warmer part of the house as temperatures drop.

Dry off your cat if they venture out in wet/snowy weather.

Use a pet-safe microwaveable heat pad (avoid overheating) next to your cat, wrapped in a blanket, to keep them warm. 🌡️🛌

By following these tips, you'll ensure your feline friend stays purrfectly warm and happy throughout the winter! 🐱🔥

Why cats love to chew on cables/wires from Christmas tree lights and how to protect them?

🐈Some cats seem to be attracted to chewing wires which is rather a dangerous pastime and they may need to be covered or put in covers temporarily or permanently. Young kittens that are teething tend to chew on anything and everything. They also have vivid imaginations. A cord hanging off the table may look like another animal’s tail or it might simply be a tactile issue they can’t resist.
🐈Additionally, a good percentage of older cats experience dental problems. Chewing may alleviate their discomfort. Being shocked from cord chewing can lead to serious injuries or even death.
🐈Obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) that involve chewing and gnawing behavior. These felines may develop a strong urge to chew, suck, and sometimes even eat inedible objects.
🐈Stress can prompt a wide range of 'odd' behaviors. In these cases, the chewing serves to relieve anxiety and simply makes the cat feel better emotionally.

How to protect them?

😺Change it up regularly with new toys, new areas for playtime, scratching posts, and different types of games to keep them mentally stimulated.
😺Cover electrical cords by running them through PVC pipes or by taping them down with electrical tape.
😺Increase your daily play with your cat as well, which can help tire your cat out both physically and mentally. Look for toys that require you to be engaged with the play, such as “fishing wand” type toys. Interactive food toys, where your cat has to hunt for food within the toy, are also a way to engage feline minds and bodies.
😺Keeping up with regular physical exams is crucial to staying on top of your cat’s health.
