1. Cancer. Cancer is a class of diseases in which cells grow uncontrollably, invade surrounding tissue and may spread to other areas of the body. As with people, cats can get various kinds of cancer.
2. Diabetes. Diabetes in cats is a complex disease caused by either a lack of the hormone insulin or an inadequate response to insulin. After a cat eats, her digestive system breaks food into various components, including glucose—which is carried into her cells by insulin.
3. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) Cats infected with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) may not show symptoms until years after the initial infection occurred.
4. Feline Leukemia Virus (FelV) First discovered in the 1960s, feline leukemia virus is a transmittable RNA retrovirus that can severely inhibit a cat’s immune system.
5. Heartworm. Spread by infected mosquitoes, heartworm is increasingly being recognized as an underlying cause of health problems in domestic cats. Cats are an atypical host for heartworms.
6. High-Rise Syndrome. Many pet parents eagerly open their windows to enjoy the weather during the summer months. Unfortunately, unscreened windows pose a real danger to cats, who fall out of them so often that the veterinary profession has a name for the complaint—High-Rise Syndrome.
7. Rabies. Rabies is a viral disease that affects the brain and spinal cord of all mammals, including cats, dogs and humans. This preventable disease has been reported in every state except Hawaii.
8. Ringworm. Although the name suggests otherwise, ringworm isn’t caused by a worm at all—but a fungus that can infect the skin, hair and nails. Not uncommon in cats, this highly contagious disease can lead to patchy, circular areas of hair loss with central red rings.
9. Upper Respiratory Infections. A cat’s upper respiratory tract—the nose, throat and sinus area—is susceptible to infections caused by a variety of viruses and bacteria.
10. Worms. Cats can acquire a variety of intestinal parasites, including some that are commonly referred to as “worms.” Infestations of intestinal worms can cause a variety of symptoms.

1. Feline Leukemia Virus. The feline leukemia virus, or FeLV, is said to be the top infectious disease to kill cats in the United States. FeLV destroys a cat's immune system, causing cancer, anemia or other diseases that can make a cat ill.

18 Signs That Your Cat Is Sick The Spruce Pets

Signs Thesprucepets.com Get All

Just Now

1. Vomiting is not normal in cats. Some people think it's ok for a cat to vomit every few days, but it's not. Things like rare vomiting or the occasional hairball are not concerns.
2. Diarrhea may indicate dietary indiscretion, intestinal parasites, and a variety of other problems. Left untreated, diarrhea can lead to dehydration and further intestinal inflammation.
3. Loss of appetite can be normal for cats but it still should not be ignored. If your cat skips the occasional meal but otherwise eats normally, then you should watch closely for trends.
4. Increased appetite may also be a concern, especially if it comes on suddenly in an older cat. Hypothyroidism may be the explanation, but your vet will need to run tests to be sure.
5. Weight changes in cats are always concerning, whether it's gain or loss. Either might be a sign of an underlying health problem. Weight loss is more urgent in the short term whereas weight gain is usually more harmful over time.
6. Lethargy is a sign of a problem, even if it's subtle. Contact your vet if your cat seems to be lying around a lot, sleeping more than usual, or just generally has a low energy level.
7. Increased thirst can mean many things in cats. Most often it means there is a problem with the kidneys or urinary tract. Many owners never even see their cats drink water.
8. Changes in urination are always important to address. They often indicate a urinary tract issue or kidney problem. If you notice a change in frequency or quantity of urine, inappropriate urination, or blood in the urine, schedule a vet appointment.
9. Changes in breathing like wheezing, rapid breathing, shortness of breath, and raspy breathing should never be ignored. If your cat is not breathing normally, it may be best to go to an emergency clinic.
10. Discharge from eyes or nose indicates a possible upper respiratory infection. This can make your cat feel ill and stop eating. It may be contagious to other cats in your home.

Published: Nov 19, 2019
1. Pay Extra Attention to Your Senior Cat’s Diet. Senior cats have unique dietary and behavioral needs. It is more important than ever for your cat to be a healthy weight to maintain optimum health.
2. Increase Your Cat’s Access to Water. As cats age, they are prone to constipation and kidney disease, especially if they are not staying hydrated enough.
3. Know and Keep an Eye Out for the Subtle Signs of Pain in Cats. Cats are masters at hiding their pain. As many as nine out of 10 senior cats show evidence of arthritis when X-rayed, yet most of us with senior cats have no idea.
4. Don’t Neglect Your Cat’s Dental Health. Dental disease is very common in aging cats. Cats can get painful holes in their teeth, broken teeth, gum disease and oral tumors that significantly affect their quality of life.
5. Give Senior Cats Daily Exercise and Mental Stimulation. Environmental enrichment is an essential part of your cat’s quality of life. All cats need places to climb, places to hide, things to scratch, and ways to hunt and play.
6. Don’t Skimp on Biannual Vet Visits. Finally, and most importantly, maintaining a good relationship with your veterinarian is critical when discussing care and quality of life for your cat in their senior years.
