CATalyst Report:
State of the Cat


Discover exclusive critical insights and information around feline health and wellness in the United States.

The CATalyst Report is the most comprehensive view of feline wellness and health ever published. This first-of-its kind resource offers a comprehensive view of perceptions, behaviors, and sentiments on feline care and wellness from 400 veterinarians and ~2,000 pet owners conducted by M/A/R/C® Research on behalf of the CATalyst Council.

Telehealth for Cats

CATalyst Council recognizes the imperative value of telehealth and believes that telemedicine benefits all stakeholders in cat health and welfare:

  • The cat can meet a veterinarian on its own terms without external stressors associated with transport.
  • The cat owner can establish a relationship with a veterinarian in a familiar setting in a familiar manner using a familiar format.
  • The veterinarian will gain the ability to address environmental situations and human-animal interaction to establish the need and foundation for a physical examination.
  • The local, state, and national communities of veterinary and animal welfare individuals and organizations will collaborate to solve community cat challenges. Underserved and resource-restricted cat owners will have access to appropriate and professional care for their companions.
