Why Cat Needs Everyday Visits | 为什么猫咪需要每天照料 OHMYCAT宠保姆

With our cat sitting experience with hundreds of kitties since OHMYCAT was set up 3 years ago, I’m impressed by how sweet and loving furry kitties can be, meanwhile so shocked by those dangerous accidents they can be involved in and their mischievous behaviors when they are left alone.

在宠保姆运营的三年多时间以来我们接触了成百上千只家养猫咪 在工作中我们惊讶于猫咪们风格迥异的可爱特质,但同时也为他们偶尔在家淘气或发生意外致使陷入危险情况而捏把冷汗。

Accident Happens

• No matter what time, where, or how, sometimes accident just happens. To lower the possibilities or minimize the consequence of accident, it’s crucial to make sure that you have someone professional, well trained and experienced checks on them and their living environment at least on daily basis.

• We understand some owners are budget conscious, thinking about cheap (or free) pet care solutions – hiring a pet sitterevery other day or even more just to make sure of food, water and othersurvival supplies, or maybe looking for a favor from a friend living nearby or house cleaner.

• We can even understand some owners embrace modern marketplaces, checking on social networking sites to find a individual pet sitter, hoping everything is set all by quick clicks.

• We urge you to stop and read through this article to get some understanding that why your cat needs daily visits from professional pet sitters. Here we’d like to share with you some of the unexpected accidents we had experienced before:

意外总是会发生

• 无论何时、何地、因为何种原因,意外总是会在不经意间发生。如果您外出前已决定将宠物留在家中,很重要的一点就是要保证有一个专业受过训练且经验丰富的宠保姆每天登门拜访,检查宠物健康状况和居住环境。这样会有效降低宠物在家发生意外的可能性或者说降低意外发生后的危害。

• 我们理解有些宠主想省钱,希望找到更便宜或者免费的宠物托管方式:比如每两天或者更久找人过来照看一次确保基本生存需要的水、食物等 。或者找附近的朋友、保洁阿姨帮忙 。

• 我们甚至可以理解有些宠主通过共享经济催生下的社交网站,在网上快速找到个人来照看宠物。

• 以下是我们工作中实际遇到的案例,我们想通过这次分享让宠主了解为什么我们建议您一定要雇佣专业的宠保姆每天照料。

This is a super athletic kitty. Unfortunately she hit her head hard on furniture/wall when she was playing/running alone at home. Our pet sitter spotted her unusual eye movement and stiff rear limbs right on arrival and rushed her immediately to the vet. She fully recovered from the head trauma after a week of treatment in the hospital.

• We cannot imagine what would happen if no one visits her on that day!

这只猫咪平日就非常好动,那天她在家独自玩耍可能奔跑或跳跃时头部撞击到墙面或家具。我们的宠保姆抵达后时立刻注意到她异常的眼部活动并且后肢无法站立,迅速将她带到诊所。在经历了一周的对症治疗,她非常幸运的康复。

• 如果那一天没有人发现从而耽误了她的治疗后果将不堪设想。

This kitty is the most outgoing one among his big family; he usually waits at the door looking for cuddling upon the pet sitter’s arrival. That day he didn’t show up at the door for his greeting routine, on the contrary the pet sitter found him lying in his bed quietly. When it came to the food time, all kitties rushed to the food as usual besides him - he could walk but slightly crippled. After evaluating the situation the pet sitter got in touch with the owner, and both agreed to take him to the vet tomorrow. Next day, when the pet sitter was ready to take him to vet, the kitty was back to normal with no symptom any more. But we insisted on the necessity of a check up even he looked well for now. And surprisingly he was in fever and the reason of it was a mystery. He recovered after several days of medication.

• A pet sitter pays close attention to pet’s behavior everyday, its important to spot the unusual behavior change at the very beginning, as it might be the first sign of sickness.

在这个三只猫咪共同生活的家中,这只猫咪最年轻,也是家中最热爱社交的。每次宠保姆还未进门,他就已经等在门口喵喵叫表示欢迎。然而那一天他并没有出现在门口,而是静静的躺在自己的小床里。晚餐时间,其他猫咪飞快的奔向食物唯独他选择慢慢的走,这是宠保姆注意到他的前腿有轻微的跛脚。因为他依然正常饮食精神状态也还算不错,宠保姆与主人联系后决定次日带猫咪去医院检查。然而第二天猫咪竟然恢复了正常,但因为情况有些蹊跷,宠保姆还是坚持带他去了医院。检查后发现他在发烧,但是找不出确切的身体炎症。在服药几天后他的体温也恢复了正常。

• 宠保姆每天与宠物相处时会仔细观察宠物行为,往往行为的突然改变关联着某些生理疾病。所以每日观察以确保及时发现疾病、及时医院就诊相当重要。

This kitty was spotted spending long time in litter box at the beginning of our visit. The pet sitter suspected that he might suffer from FLUTD (Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease) related disease and informed the owner suggesting a vet visit even he still looked well in general besides the long urination. During the communication, the owner thought it might be the consequence of separation anxiety since they found the same problem with the kitty before in previous trips and they preferred to wait bit more. After a week, blood appeared in kitty’s urine, the pet sitter took him immediately to the vet. He had been having bladder infection for quite a long time. The kitty was kept in the hospital for treatment and recovered after half month.

• What Can Happen If a Cat's Lower urinary Tract Problems Go Untreated?

Untreated urinary problems can cause partial or complete obstruction of the urethra, preventing a cat from urinating. This is a real medical emergency that can very quickly lead to kidney failure and/or rupture of the bladder, and can prove fatal if the obstruction is not relieved right away.

在宠保姆拜访的头几天发现该猫咪平均排尿时间较长,怀疑患有猫下泌尿道疾病,并告知宠主,建议就医。宠主认为可能因为分离焦虑症等心理原因导致这个问题,因为上一次外出时猫咪也有过类似情况。所以宠主决定继续观察为主。一周后,猫咪尿血。立即就医后诊断发现猫咪患有膀胱炎多时。经历半个月留院治疗后猫咪顺利康复。

• 如果猫下泌尿道疾病没有及时就医会有什么后果?

会导致尿道部分或完全阻塞从而无法排尿。若阻塞未得到及时疏通,这种紧急状况会迅速导致肾衰竭、膀胱炸裂甚至死亡。

Turning on stove, faucet or doorknob; or too long nails stuck in nose...

Yes we had experienced them all!!

我们还经历过猫咪打开煤气开关、水龙头、门把手;指甲由于太长玩耍时钩进鼻子等等…

When you are working on your pet care solution for your holiday, do concern about the risk of gambling your pet’s safety with possibilities if they are left alone unsupervised for a relatively long time. We suggest you to have a pet sitter popping up at least everyday to check on everything related to your pet’s health and safety. In addition, all pet owners will receive a checklist from OHMYCAT as guidance to prepare your best home pet-proof step by step. It will help to minimize most of the accident possibilities that we experienced before if owners carefully follow it up.

当您已决定外出时会将宠物留在家中,请一定不要拿宠物的安全与可能性作比较,他们独自留在家的时间越长意外危险发生的可能性就越大。所以我们建议您至少安排每天有宠保姆检查宠物健康状况和居家环境安全性。另外,每位宠主都会收到一份备忘录,帮助您出行前移除家中可能存在的安全隐患,确保将意外的可能性降到最低。
