Cats don't seem to be as healthy as I remember them to be when I was a child, many moons ago.
Now they seem to be prone to any and every disease under the sun, with exotic breeds succumbing the most.
Whether your cat health questions are infertility, upper respiratory issues, “inevitable” ageing diseases, renal problems, fleas, dead babies, or anything else it all comes down to the fact that domestic cats don't have the healthy immune systems they once did.
You think you're doing all the right things by taking her to the vet regularly and doing as they suggest, whether it's vaccinating or feeding the cat food they supply.
But still your cat's health is failing.
Why is this so?
I think there are several reasons for this, but there is one outstanding reason which you can address without much knowledge.
And that's diet.
Food is consumed daily. Which makes it the number one area of importance.
If you are feeding your cat a commercial brand of cat food, her health will be deteriorating.
Cats evolved over many tens of thousands of years on a diet of fresh kills, which means fresh, raw meat. Their domesticity is comparatively recent, and commercial pet food only came into being about the middle of the 20th century.
So, think of your most pressing cat health questions and then look at the food you are feeding her? Is the food in accordance with how wild cats eat? If not, then maybe you need to think about a change.
I never expect people to believe me any more than I expect them to believe anyone. But I always try to put forward logical and reasonable arguments to support my way of thinking.
In the 1930's Dr Pottenger carried out some experiments on cats. He discovered that the offspring of cats who were only fed cooked food were born with immune deficiencies.
He also discovered that within three generations, the immune system would be virtually useless unless some raw food had been eaten.
I suggest to you that no matter what your cat health questions are, the answer is always the same.
Raw meat and bones, just as wild cats eat.
Wild cats are very healthy (they have to be to survive), have few fleas and worms and don't suffer the chronic, degenerative diseases that so afflict our domestic cats.
However, there is an enormous industry at the heart of cat health. Veterinarians and drug companies make enormous sums of money treating ailing cats. Many would go out of business if you decided to answer your own cat health questions by solid research.
But I'm encouraging you to do just that.
