Cat Chat®

Welcome to the new CAT CHAT ® brought to you by Dr. Elsey’s, the private company owned by Dr. Elsey, who created the #1 litter in the country to keep cats in their loving homes (helping to avoid Out of Litter Box problems, the #1 reason people abandon their kitties). Tracie wrote THE CAT BIBLE: Everything Your Cat Expects You to Know and hosted Cat Chat ® as a live call-in show for nearly 8 years on the Martha Stewart channel of Sirius/XM. Her mission is to entertain, educate and inspire cat lovers so they can give their kitty cats the best possible life in nutrition, affection, and environmental enrichment. Tracie's co-host is Dr. Mikel Maria Delgado of Feline Minds Cat Behavior Consulting, who has a PhD in Psychology from UC Berkeley, where she studied animal behavior and human-pet relationships, followed by postdoctoral research at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. She was co-author with Jackson Galaxy of the “Total Cat Mojo” and wrote the forthcoming book “Play with Your Cat!” Tracie and Dr. Mikel discuss all manner of feline issues so you can better understand and appreciate your own feline family members. They welcome questions (at RadioPetLady@gmail.com).  Sit back and enjoy the conversations that we hope will deepen your knowledge and affection for all cats. Thanks for listening!

Cancer from a Rabies Shot?

Cat Chat – Brought to You by Dr. Elsey’s (05-12-2021) #0041: Dr. Elizabeth answers Susan’s concern about the possibility of her cat getting cancer from the rabies booster that she fears her vet may insist upon — but she read in The Cat Bible might cause cancer at the injection site. Tracie asks if this is still true, since many years have passed since she researched and wrote the book — Dr. Elizabeth said things have changed since 15 years ago when cats were getting sarcoma at the injection site, but even now, weighing the risk/gain benefit of a vaccine depends on a cat’s lifestyle.
