Inside the Book

Cats have a long and obscure history. Over thirty-five million years ago the cat’s first ancestors appeared. It is thought that they originated from a weasellike meat eater that was a member of an animal family called Miacidae (also thought to be the ancestor of, among others, the dog, raccoon, bear, skunk, and hyena). From these first cat ancestors arose two branches of recognizably catlike creatures.

One included the saber-toothed cats that eventually became extinct; the other included the ancestors of all the Felidae (cat family) alive today. Exactly when cats became humans’ companions is not known. It is well documented, however, that cats closely resembling those alive today were an important part of the Egyptian culture, where as early as 2500 B.C. they were revered and considered sacred.

From Egypt it appears that domestic cats spread to the Far East and Europe and, much later (around the seventeenth century), were imported to North America from Europe. Although the cat was condemned as a symbol of evil during the Middle Ages in Europe and at the time of the witch hunts in North America, for most of history the cat has maintained the position of an important companion to people and a natural means of rodent control.
 
In fact, cats have gained steadily in popularity and numbers since the eighteenth century. Today in developed countries they seriously compete with dogs for the public’s affection. Over fifty-two million cats reside in the United States alone!
 
Although cats have been humans’ companions for so long, it is only within the last thirty-five years or so that veterinarians and cat owners have become interested in and able to provide very specialized health care for them. Many pet owners today want to take an active part in preserving and maintaining their cat’s good health. This book is written for them.
 
The Well Cat Book differs from other books on cat care because it tells you how to understand the signs of illness or injury your cat may develop and how to evaluate those signs in order to begin proper treatment. It resembles its companion book, The Well Dog Book. Both are intended to help you understand what your veterinarian is talking about when he or she discusses your pet’s health, to enable you to treat some illnesses at home, to prevent others, and truly to help your veterinarian get your pet well when an illness is too severe to be treated without professional skills. Think of this book as a kind of paramedic’s manual for cats that will help you treat many problems on your own. It should help you save money wasted in unnecessary veterinary visits without endangering your pet’s health. Read More
