Hyperthyroid Epidemic in Cats




Some ignorant little twit just called da lady "cruel" for letting da kittehs hang out in the garden.

She said cats must not be allowed outside. Her reasons included cars and psychopathic children.

Sisfurcat Chili lived to 17 and Bugs to 16. They were both indoor outdoor. Da lady had a few guidelines to keep us as safe as possible from raccoons and cars. Indoors at night and during rush hour, or if da humans is away from da house.


NYTimes: The Mystery of the Wasting House Cats

Inside the house is not a magical safe place. Chili and Bugs both had hyperthyroid. It seems there is an epidemic among indoor cats.

Quote:
"Among the many behaviors that appeared to put cats at risk: spending time indoors, using cat litter, eating canned food, eating fish-flavored canned food, eating liver-and-giblet-flavored canned food, drinking puddle water, sleeping on the floor, sleeping on bedding treated with flea-control products and living in a home with a gas fireplace."

Transmission of FIV

Transmission of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) among cohabiting cats in two cat rescue shelters.
Conflicting accounts have been published in the veterinary literature regarding transmission of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) between cohabiting cats in mixed households, and the mechanics of possible casual transmission, if it occurs, are poorly understood. Similarly, there are conflicting reports of vertical transmission of FIV.

I don't know what to make of this. The rescue sites are all linking to each other and crowing that FIV is not transmissible to cats living in the same household as long as there are no bites. This would be wonderful, but it has not been proven.

It has NOT been proven.

The article reports that 138 cats in one rescue did not catch FIV from an FIV+ cat It says that 19 kittens born of FIV+ queens didn't catch it through the placenta or by nursing. This is too small of a sample to be statistically significant.

Try it again with 1000 cats.



Here's more info about FIV from Cornell University.
