The Body Condition Score (BCS) for your Cat

With humans, doctors use the so-called Body Mass Index to determine if we are under- or overweight. For our pets there is a somewhat different metric - the Body Condition Score (BCS). BCS helps you or your vet to determine if your cat is in a good shape physically, that is, whether kitty is fit or fat. BCS is a somewhat subjective rating based on criteria which we will describe further below. From these you can determine the perfect weight for your particular cat.

The Marbled Cat (Pardofelis marmorata)
This elusive small wild cat (Pardofelis marmorata) is found in south and south-eastern Asia. It has a uniquely marbled coat pattern, from which its name is derived (Marmora is 'marble' in Latin.) The first recorded sighting of a Marbled Cat was by William Charles Linnaeus Martin in 1836. Martin records the Marbled Cat as being found in Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Burma, Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam. Originally placed in the Pantherine subfamily within the family Felidae, following genetic analysis the cat has now been rehomed with the Pardofelis genus, species p. Marmorata. Close relatives are Asian Golden Cats and the Bay Cat. 21/10/2018 read more...
Phosphorus and your cat's kidneys
After calcium, phosphorus is the most common mineral in a mammal's body. A healthy body needs phosphorus for, among others: strong bones and teeth, growing, maintaining, and repairing body tissue and cells, assistance in muscle contraction, reducing muscle pain after exercise, maintaining a regular heartbeat, good nerve conduction, managing how the body stores and uses energy. Phosphorus also helps the kidneys to filter waste products from the bloodstream. In short without phosphorus no animal could survive, but there can be too much of a good thing. Scientific studies show that there are strong links between too much phosphorus and some diseases, especially those involving kidney damage. 13/9/2018 read more...
Pet nutrition
You have probably seen the advertisements - 'Brand X is higher in protein! Buy protein-rich Brand X for a happier, healthier pet! Dogs/cats prefer Brand X because of its rich protein content.' But did anyone actually ask the pets? 6/7/2018 read more...
