All About Cats – Tips, Tricks and Necessities

According to statistics collected by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), 62% of U.S. households own a pet. That’s 72.9 millions homes that have a pet of one type or another.

Of those pet-owning homes, 38.9 million of them own cats and many of them own more than one cat. According to the APPA statistics, there are 86.4 million cats owned in the United States. That compares to 78.2 million dogs. That means that, currently the number of cats kept as pets outnumber dogs by almost 10 million!

Cats and Cat Care

Yet despite these statistics, cats continue to be misunderstood. Too many cat owners don’t understand that cats require regular veterinary care in the same fashion that dogs do. It’s somewhat disturbing that, regardless of the fact that the number of cats kept as pets is higher than the number of dogs, the number of veterinary visits involving cats is much lower.

Cats are surrounded by their own mystique. There are lots of myths about cats; some of them true, many of them not. Cats also get blamed, somewhat unfairly in many cases, for spreading various diseases.

The Truth About Cats

In this week’s interview, Dr. Marty Becker, aka “America’s Veterinarian”, joins me to talk about cats. Dr. Becker has just released a new book, Your Cat: The Owner’s Manual. In the interview, Dr. Becker shares with us some of his best tips for caring your cat, including how to control loose hair in a home with cats, what to feed your cat, what type of cat litter to use for your cat and much more. Listen in.
