Prone illnesses include*
Polycystic kidney disease
An inherited disorder in which countless cysts (hence, polycystic) develop in the kidneys. Cysts are small round membranous sacs filled with a watery fluid. As the cysts grow and multiply, they slowly replace normal kidney tissue, impairing function.
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)
The most commonly diagnosed cardiac disease in cats. Characterised by regional or diffuse thickening of the walls of the ventricle, (the primary "pump" muscle of the heart) it leads to heart failure if not treated.
A life-threatening condition caused when kittens, who have type A blood, nurse from their type B mother during the first 24 hours.
