I was reading online about something called prostrate cancer. I hadn’t heard of it before. People were acting as if this was a male disease and I can see how men would be more affected. After all, they lie down more.
It began to worry me that cats could be affected by this deadly disease, after all we do lie down a lot. We, in fact, quite like to prostrate ourselves across the window sills, the floor, the bathroom vanity. What if lying prostrate could make us ill? What if lying in these positions gave us prostrate cancer.
I was unclear though if this was a means to getting a condition, or if it was a cancer that ate away your ability to lie prostrate across whatever surface you desired. The article I saw was not clear.
This opens up so many questions but I think cats, as the great experts on the prostrate postion should keep an eye on this disease!
Wow, you’re so right, that could affect all cats. I think Chase has it, he lies prostrate all of the time. I’m going to have to watch him on that!
I think you should have yourself a full body scan immediately to check for this. 😉
Boy, I never realized laying prostrate could be so dangerous! Thanks for bringing this danger to our attention!
I think if you just get up and run around every now and then… you should be able to steer clear of this affliction. Think peppy.
Maybe get a cat-scan??

I think the boys haf to worry bout this more than us ladies. We do our yoga, which should help counteract the effects of lying prostrate. I purrfur to curl into a ball, while Victor throws himself prostrate on the kitchen floor. More cat yoga!
If you need Dr Derby let me know.
