How does a cat show pain?
Cats are true masters at hiding pain
Sometimes you have to ignore their dogged bravado!
This is the nature of the cat: in the wild, a sick or injured animal would quickly become a victim. This knowledge is so embedded in their psyche that a cat grits its teeth and does not whine.
Every change in the behavior of a cat is basically a reason to observe the animal closely and, if necessary, to ask a veterinarian for advice: If you do not want to go there right away, you can also ask for a professional assessment by phone.
Possible signs of disease in cats:
Cats are very sensitive creatures and can also change their behavior due to stress or fear. Often it is difficult to recognize pain and diseases, because cats usually withdraw and hide as soon as they feel bad.
As a cat owner you should observe your cat daily and keep an eye on whether it eats well, goes to the toilet normally, shows no diarrhea or vomiting, moves normally and maintains its coat.
Also the weight should be checked from time to time - for this you can stand together with your cat on the scale and then subtract your weight. A sudden weight loss is always a reason for concern and should be clarified by a veterinarian.
This is only a modest selection of behavioral abnormalities that should alarm cat owners, especially if they are observed over several days. You don't have to think of a disease if your cat sleeps a few hours longer, but if the symptoms accumulate, you now know what to do...
