It is extremely rare for owners to see how cats die. And this is because most of them want to meet with death away from home in complete solitude. However, this does not happen all the time, since not everyone has the opportunity to go out.
To realize that the cat is dying, and the time has come to release him, the last signs will undoubtedly help the characteristic signs of impending death. After all, it is important to provide appropriate care for him in this difficult time.
How many cats live
In cats, starting from the age of 2 weeks, 1 year of life spent is 4 human. By the way, in dogs this number is 7 years. The average life span of cats is approximately 16 years (80 years per human count).
The approaching senile age does not go unnoticed by an attentive owner, since the creature becomes much less energetic, and the implementation of daily affairs creates heaviness.
Reasons for the death of cats
There are several key reasons for the death of cats. First of all, these are age, diseases and accidents, from which not a single living soul is safe. Like a person, a cat can die at the age of 10 years (40 according to human calculations) from a tragic accident.
From senile age
Cases have been recorded when family pets lived up to 26 years or more, but this rarely happens. After overcoming the 13 year milestone, it is not difficult to find out that the cat will soon die. This is the naturalness of all life in nature. The creature becomes sluggish over the years, does not play and does not have fun, as before. The body systems gradually stop working normally, making themselves felt with pain, weakness in the body and other distinctive symptoms.
From the disease
Another likely factor in the cat’s departure is from the disease. In veterinary medicine, there is a complete list of diseases that often affect the body of cats. The leading place in the list is chronic renal failure. In particular, the disease is characteristic of males who are castrated at a time. The metabolic disorder associated with the restructuring of the hormonal background after castration (removal of the sex glands in cats and cats), contributes to the formation of clots, stones in the renal system. Urolithiasis is quite difficult to cure, and it often turns out to be the root cause of the death of a pet as a result of pathology of a functional feature of the urinary system. A slow poisoning of the body by half-life bio-nutrient products occurs.
Of course, in current veterinary medicine, chronic kidney failure is not considered a sentence, especially if the cat or kitty is still young, and the veterinarian is really a specialist who can take into account the personal characteristics of the animal’s body and choose the appropriate treatment regimen.
Cats die of cancer, depending on the characteristics of the disease, organ damage and personal health characteristics of the pet. Young animals can live for several years, but if there is no treatment, these years will become filled with pain and pain. In old animals, everything happens much sooner and from a carcinoma, a cat or a cat dies within a few months after determining the disease.
Where and for what reason do cats leave before death?
In the wild, a dying cat tries to retire. This is absolutely natural, since the creature is weakening and is no longer able to escape from predators. It seeks a quiet secluded place in order to take refuge and die quietly. It is possible that death is perceived as a disease criterion. For this reason, the cat leaves his native home in order to sit out.
Home pupils still have this instinct. And if they do not go outside, then the final refuge may be a cabinet or a far corner behind the furniture. Moreover, the creature is extremely rarely shown from the shelter and dozes almost round the clock. This dangerous indicator should immediately make you think.
REFERENCE! It is believed that running away, cats deliberately protect their owners from moral anguish.
The British even have a sign that the death of a cat in the house attracts misfortune. However, you do not need to believe in these legends, since it is unlikely that the pet would wish his own comrade bad. It’s just that not everyone can get out of the house inconspicuously, especially if the old man is exhausted and unable to move without the help of others.
