    Thank you! That's getting bookmarked, definitely! Whenever I see my cat acting differently I'll have it to refer to instead of freaking out on the Internet trying to find this exact list.

    You are welcome :)!!!! I think many of those behaviours are easy to ignore, so it is good to know that sometimes seeing a change in their behavious is actually a bad sign. I think the same can be applied to dogs.

    Again you provide us with very useful information. If ever I find another cat I suspect I am going to an expert in cat care. I must confess that Twinkle's life even though short was quite healthy. I saw him throw up on the odd occasion. Good tips yet again Trellum.

    I make my own medicine for my kitties. I use a cup full of hard food and Organic Apple cider vinegar. I pour the food on a baking pan then let the food soak up the Apple cider vinegar over night in the oven, then I bake it on 250 for an hour or until it is dried out again. It helps the cat's immune system fight urinary tract infections. I also let them have a teaspoon of danactive yogurt from time to time to clean them out if they are constipated.

    You are very welcome :) I hope you have found this useful, hopefully you never need this knowledge, but it's always good to have some of it handy, specially if it's about our beloved furry friends. Knowledge is power :D

    This is an excellent graph and very informative. Thank you for sharing. It is always good to know the signs since kitty can not speak for him/herself. You got that right Trellum, knowledge is power and you can never know too much when it comes to kitty and their health.

    Thanks, Susan. I love info graphs for the simplicity and colorfulness. I think they help to get the info memorized and spread more easily than a boring article. I think of info graphs as mind maps, they look pretty much like them :)

    These are great tips. I recognized some of these exact signs in my cats before they passed. As a pet owner it's best to error on the side of caution then just brush off odd behavior from your cat. Cats are quite good at hiding their pain or illness and sometimes discovering this too late can mean life or death. So a word of advice is stay in tune with your cats and know their behavior and what's normal for them so you can differentiate later if they fall ill.

    This is a good resource, thank you for posting it. It really is good to try to determine if your cat is truly in need of a vet, before going. He doesn't like the vet, and I don't like taking him if it is not necessary. A money issue of course! If he needs it though, I do want to get him there.

    I love inforgraphs - they're such a great way of delivering information in an easy way. I feel like I should print this out and put it on my fridge for handy reference.

    Great infographic. The sign is just similar like human. But my guess always the weird behavior. The primary thing look is your cat suddenly not active anymore and not play around like usual.
