4 Signs Your Cat Could Be Unwell

Cats are mysterious creatures, and when they don't feel well, it's hard to know what's going on.

But there are some signs you can look for that can help you determine if your cat is unwell. We've put together this ultimate guide of all the signs that could indicate something is off with your kitty.


4 Signs That Your Cat Could Be Unwell

Change in behavior. 

If you notice your cat acting differently than normal, it could be a sign that something is up. This is especially true if you haven't seen this behavior before or it doesn't make any sense given the situation they're in. If your cat has always been an indoor cat and all of a sudden starts howling at the door when you open it, there's probably something wrong. If he's never been aggressive before but now is going after other pets or people, that's also not right.

Your cat is losing weight. 

If you notice that your cat has lost weight over the course of a couple days or weeks, it could be a sign of illness or malnutrition.

Your cat is sleeping too much or too little. 

If your cat is sleeping more than usual (more than 18 hours a day), this can be a sign of illness. If they're sleeping less than usual (less than 12 hours per day), it could also be a sign of illness or stress in another area of their life—such as not being able to get into the litter box due to arthritis pain!

Your cat starts to lose weight.

If your cat has suddenly lost weight without any changes in diet or exercise routines, this could mean there's something wrong with them internally—a tumor or other growth may have developed somewhere in their body and needs to be removed before it spreads further into their system!

If you've noticed any of these signs in your cat, it's important to get them checked out by a vet! There are many reasons why a cat might be acting differently, and many times it's nothing serious—but it's always better to be safe than sorry.
