Pet Tip

How Old is My Cat – Guessing a cat’s age – Pet tip 201

When people adopt a new cat or are thinking about buying a cat they often want to know how old that cat is. If the cat is a kitten this is usually easy. The original owner should know how old the kitten was or if you bring the kitten to a veterinarian, the vet should be able to tell how old the kitten is with a reasonable degree of accuracy. If good records were kept from kitten-hood or previous adoptions, again this is an easy task. The problem occurs when you are considering getting an adult cat whose age and/or history are unknown.

Puma's Story
Puma was adopted from our local Humane Society on a rainy September day (26th) 2009. He was terribly stressed and seemed to just be out of sorts and misunderstood. So, with optimism and a great deal of love in our hearts we decided to adopt him!
It was what seemed a long drive home, but finally we arrived and put the carrier Puma came in, in the middle of the floor. We stepped back and opened it. I must admit I was terrified! However, as we leaned over the box, out peered two HUGE green eyes. With one elegant leap, there was Puma out to greet us! Puma was very interested in everything that surrounded him. From room to room he explored and tested his new home. I must say he was a completely different cat from how he behaved at his old home! He was just so beautiful and so loving! He even jumped up on the couch with us the very first night! By the end of day two he was laying on the floor watching TV and letting us pet his belly! We were overjoyed! Our new member of our family is working out better than we ever imagined and we couldn't be happier! We love our Puma!!
Why Puma??
Linc (Puma's adopt name), was very stressed and seemed to be in pain (which we know he wasn't) but every time I went to pet him he was hiss or yowl. He seemed very upset and confused. I got the impression that Linc had it very rough in his previous homes and never really felt he had a true home where he didn't have to worry about being given up and returned. As we were leaving and filling out paperwork to adopt Linc, the friendly staff decided it would be a good idea to give Linc an Antibiotic shot, just to make sure he didn’t pick up anything at the shelter. As I stood there filling out paperwork I realized all staff members were in the back with Linc, assisting his departure and vaccine. All I could hear was hissing, and yowls that would make anyone thing they were caging up a full grown lion! Poor Linc was not happy to say the least! Who would be!? No one likes shots and being confined to small places! After all that fuss, I kind heartedly joked with the staff that I hoped Linc was not half Puma!
