    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The most trouble-free breed of cat is the common long-haired.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement claims that the most trouble-free breed of cat is the common long-haired breed. However, this is not necessarily true as the term "trouble-free" can vary from person to person. While some individuals may find long-haired cats to be low-maintenance and easy to care for, others may consider them to be high-maintenance due to their grooming needs. Additionally, different cat breeds have different temperaments and health issues, so it is subjective to label one breed as the most trouble-free. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Desexing should take place before the cat reaches maturity at around ______.

    • A.

      Four to five months

    • B.

      Five to six months

    • C.

      Six to seven months

    Correct Answer
    B. Five to six months
    Explanation
    Desexing should take place before the cat reaches maturity at around five to six months. This is because cats can reach sexual maturity as early as four to five months, and it is recommended to desex them before they can reproduce. Waiting until six to seven months may increase the risk of unwanted pregnancies or behavioral issues associated with mating behaviors.

    The first signs of illness noticed by the cat's owner will probably be decreased appetite and listlessness.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that decreased appetite and listlessness are common signs of illness in cats. When a cat is not feeling well, it may lose interest in food and become lethargic or less active. These symptoms can be early indicators of various health issues, such as infections, digestive problems, or systemic diseases. Therefore, it is important for cat owners to monitor their pet's appetite and behavior closely, as any significant changes may indicate the need for veterinary attention.

    Feline respiratory disorder, commonly referred to as Cat Flu, is a well-known term used to describe a range of respiratory infections in cats. These infections can be caused by various viruses and bacteria, leading to symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, nasal discharge, and fever. Therefore, the statement that Feline respiratory disorder is also known as Cat Flu is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Cats should be housed outdoors.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Cats should be housed outdoors" is incorrect. Cats can be housed both indoors and outdoors, depending on the specific circumstances and the cat's individual needs. While some cats may enjoy spending time outdoors, it is generally recommended to keep cats indoors for their safety and well-being. Indoor cats are protected from dangers such as traffic, predators, and diseases, and they also have a longer lifespan compared to outdoor cats. Additionally, indoor cats are less likely to cause harm to wildlife and the environment.
