As in humans, cats during their lifetime can be attacked by viruses or bacteria that can affect their immune defence and cause them to weaken. However, some pathologies may be asymptomatic. This is why animal health is at the heart of the concerns of all pet owners.
Fortunately, however, most cat diseases can be prevented by vaccination.
Cat diseases are numerous, they are bacterial, viral or related to the environment and age.

Viral diseases in cats:

Viral diseases are quite common in cats: 
Calicivirosis: It is the runny nose, fever and despondency.
Pan feline leukopenia: This disease manifests itself by abundant diarrhoea, generally accompanied by haemorrhages.
Rhino viral tracheitis: The cause of this disease is due to the herpes virus is characterized by secretions from the throat, nose and eyes.
Typhus: this disease is usually fatal whose symptoms are fever, hemorrhagic diarrhea, prostration and vomiting.
Feline immunodeficiency: it is transmitted by bites and injuries.
Coryza: This disease is known as cat flu. Coryza is therefore a mixture of viruses and bacteria, each with different effects but which will all combine to attack the cat's respiratory system.
Diseases of the urinary system in cats:

A cat that finds it difficult to urinate or whose urine contains traces of
 blood it presents a problem in the urinary tract.
 The causes of urinary tract disease in cats are:

> Parasitic diseases in cats:
There are more diseases caused by viruses, there are other parasitic pathologies that divide into two parts, internal parasites and external parasites.
These are usually intestinal worms. If your cat has a swollen and thin belly even if it eats enough, it is very likely infested by intestinal worms.
There are three types: ascaris, tapeworms and giardias which are protozoa.
- Fleas: are frequent all year round, they cause more or less violent itching in cats.

- Ringworm: it is a parasitic fungus that affects the animal's skin. It is very contagious for cats or humans.

To protect your kitten, it's important to get her vaccinated. An annual vaccination booster will ensure a long normal life for your cat.
