Learn Your Cat's Language

Many assume that cats communicate via meow, purring, or
hissing. But it’s so much more. Learn the signs by hovering over different parts of the cat.

1. Hot ears

In most cases, hot ears are normal in cats, but if extremely hot, it could be a sign that your cat may be running a fever.

2. Sweaty Paws

Sweaty paws usually occur when body temperature rises, but it can also happen as a bodily reaction to stress or high anxiety.

3. Urinary

Frequent trips to the litter box or urinating outside of the litter box could be a sign of lower urinary tract disease and may be time to see a vet.

4. Tail

A swaying slowly or twitching tail could indicate that your cat is focused. Let your curious cat follow their hunting instincts.

PLEDGE TO TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET

By taking the Royal Canin pledge to Stay Curious, you are committing to taking the first step in learning more about your cat and their health.

 

I PLEDGE THAT...

Though my cat is known for hiding their health issues, I pledge to uncover their pain by learning the signs and taking them to the vet. I will also follow the vet's advice and continue to do yearly checkups so my cat gets the certified help they need regularly.
