Allison C. Ramsey, MD, has a busy schedule. In addition to being an allergist and clinical immunologist for Rochester Regional Health, she is an assistant clinical professor at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Additionally, she is the past chair of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Adverse Reactions to Drugs, Biologicals and Latex Committee, a member of the Editorial Board of Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practiceas well as a member of the Healio Allergy/Asthma Peer Perspective Board.

So it’s a good thing that she loves her job.

“I love this field and I love caring for patients and advancing the field through research,” she told Healio.

We spoke with Ramsey to find out why she got into allergy/immunology, her most and least favorite aspects of the practice, and her take on the biggest recent and upcoming innovations in treatment. .

Helio: How did you come to make allergy/immunology your specialty?

Allison C. Ramsey

Ramsey: I trained in internal medicine because I loved the thinking that goes into diagnosing and treating patients in internal medicine. I was ultimately drawn to allergy/immunology because of the impact its doctors can have on patients’ quality of life, whether it’s improving a person’s allergy to their pet pet, asthma or remove a drug allergy label. Even though I’m trained in internal medicine, allergists/immunologists are trained to see adults and children, so I like being able to see a 6 month old baby and then a 90 year old woman in the same hour.

Helio: Do you have a particular area of ​​allergy/immunology that you value the most?

Ramsey: I’m mostly drawn to drug allergies. I enjoy expanding treatment options for patients to optimize their treatments for other acute or chronic conditions. I also love research in this area and thinking about how we can improve approaches to drug allergy assessment. In addition to drug allergy, I enjoy helping patients with severe asthma with the directory of excellent medications we currently have for them.

Helio: What challenges do you regularly encounter in practice that keep you up at night?

Ramsey: Allergy/immunology may be a routine practice, but really difficult cases arise periodically. It is these more difficult cases that can dominate my thoughts. At a more global level, inequality of access and quality of care is a huge problem.

Helio: What do you enjoy doing outside of clinical practice?

Ramsey: I am married with three children and a dog. I enjoy doing yoga, running, working out and walking/training my dog. We have a lot of baseball in our household, so I’m often on the sidelines of a Little League field. I also like to have a good night out with friends.

Helio: What do you think has been the most exciting development in allergy and asthma treatment over the past decade?

Ramsey: As a drug allergy specialist, I’m excited about the attention penicillin allergy is getting and the delabeling of penicillin allergy. I think the expansion of our field of biologic drugs has been a game-changer for asthma, nasal polyps, and atopic dermatitis.

Helio: What progress do you most expect over the next 10 years?

Ramsey: I look forward to more drugs, biologics and more that better target specific patient disease states. This is called precision medicine.

BOSTON- People undergoing surgery are at risk of harm due to medication errors. A new approach to managing and documenting how medications are administered in the operating room improves patient safety and workflow efficiency, according to a new study by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). work of clinicians. the results of this surveythe first of its kind, appear in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIE) and could lay the groundwork for sweeping changes in the way anesthesia and other medications are administered in the operating room.

In recent years, there have been widespread efforts to reduce the incidence of medication errors in hospitals. However, while a drug given to a patient in a hospital ward goes through multiple levels of electronic and human checks to confirm it’s safe and appropriate, that’s usually not possible in the operating theatre, explains the doctor. MGH anesthesiologist Karen C. Nanji, MD, MPH, a clinician-scientist who studies drug safety.

“Most of the protective measures to prevent medication errors that exist in other areas of the hospital are not available in the operating room,” says Nanji. During surgery, the pace of action is often rapid and a patient’s condition can change rapidly. Most surgical patients receive many drugs, around 10 to 13 per operation, Nanji says. A 2016 study by Nanji and colleagues found that about one in 20 surgery-related medication administration contained an error. With the high volume of medication these patients receive, this means that at least one medication error can occur in over 40% of operations.

To solve this problem, Nanji and his colleagues developed a new clinical decision support software (CDS) platform designed to reduce harm from medication errors in the operating room by more than 95%. The CDS software has several key features. It is fully integrated with electronic health records and vital signs monitors, and it works in real time on operating room computers. Barcodes on syringe labels are scanned immediately prior to administration, providing real-time, patient-specific information on the physician’s computer screen, including allergy alerts, dosages suggestions based on the patient’s medication history and reminders for important medications or tests that may have been missed. The software can also determine if a medication is compatible with a patient’s current heart rate or blood pressure.

For the JAMIE study, Nanji and his team recruited 40 anesthesia clinicians to participate in simulated surgical procedures using a training manikin (or a realistic simulated patient). Half used existing standard protocols for medication administration and documentation, while the other participants used the new CDS software during sham surgeries. All groups were asked to perform basic tasks, such as administering and documenting medications commonly used in the operating room and responding to a drop in blood pressure. The simulated procedures were recorded on audio and video.

A comparison of the two groups revealed that clinicians using the CDS software worked with significantly greater efficiency. They spent 20% less time documenting their work, which required 50% fewer mouse clicks and half as much screen scrolling. Clinicians who used the CDS software also provided better care: simulated patients in the CDS group had more tightly controlled blood pressure, which reduced the risk of heart and kidney damage during and after surgery. Clinicians in the CDS group were also more likely to correctly adjust analgesic doses in sham patients with underlying kidney disease. Importantly, they also rated the system as easier to use; the CDS software achieved a “usability score” that was twice that of electronic health record software.

Nanji hopes the call for greater efficiency in the operating room will further motivate clinicians to use the new CDS software, leading to better patient safety. Nanji is working with the Mass General Brigham Hospital System to bring the software to hospitals across the United States. “Our goal,” Nanji says, “is to make surgery and anesthesia safer for all patients.”

Nanji is also an Assistant Professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School.

This work was supported by grants from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Health Sciences Association of Alberta (HSAA) Central District Board Member DJ McMillan says what is happening is the erosion and commodification of the health care system. health.

“We’re at the point where access to health care is becoming an issue, especially in rural Alberta. We see it with the privatization of labs, people can’t do blood work in some rural towns, and even here in Red Deer blood work is sent to Calgary or Edmonton. Meanwhile, surgeries are being postponed or diverted, and with EMS the workload is increased due to all the transfers of patients out of the region to major cities for services they should be able to get here,” remarked McMillan.

“If we continue down the privatization slope, it will only get worse. We need to properly fund our public health care system and ensure universal access for all Albertans is assured.

The HSAA represents approximately 29,000 health care workers across Alberta, including approximately 3,000 in Alberta’s Central Health Services Area.

McMillan pointed out that these workers are feeling burnout right now.

“We are seeing with COVID, the opioid crisis and with privatization, healthcare workers are burnt out. They struggle to keep this system afloat, but they also come to work because they love this industry. They want to make sure their family and ours are taken care of. They enjoy the career, but are pushed to the brink of failure.

Dr. Kym Jim, who was do not at Saturday’s rally, is the spokesperson for the Society for Healthcare Expansion for Central Alberta (SHECA). Jim spoke to rdnewsNOW earlier this week on the continued pressures on hospital staff and how workers are unable to maintain a good work/life balance.

He said doctors were already aware of various service disruptions occurring over the summer at the Red Deer Regional Hospital.

“Our main concerns are about patient care, because what is very distressing about all of this is that we know we are not serving the population as we should or could,” he said. “What’s really needed is a task force to provide support services to physicians in Red Deer, which physicians in Calgary and Edmonton already have.

Jim asks the question: “What happens when people are looking for a job and they see that they could accept a job where they will be on call once every 15 nights, compared to a job in Red Deer where is it once every five nights? Imagine the job you will choose. This is the difficulty we encounter with our recruitment.

AHS did not deny Jim’s claim that future disruptions are coming, but stressed that it was a last resort.

“Efforts include the continued recruitment and retention of not only physicians and staff, but also increasing the support available from professionals such as clinical assistants and physician assistants,” AHS said in a series of responses. to questions from rdnewsNOW.

“Working understaffed is not ideal for anyone. We have worked and will continue to work to minimize the impact of these challenges to ensure patient care is not interrupted and our staff enjoy safe and healthy working conditions. AHS is extremely grateful and appreciative of the incredible efforts the physicians and staff have made and continue to make in their dedication to patients and each other.

AHS confirms that they are currently recruiting for three clinical assistant positions in general surgery, with interviews this week, as well as three clinical assistants for doctors of anesthesia, cardiology and general internal medicine, with additional doctors wanted for emergency services.

“Our message is that health care is essential for communities like Red Deer. We represent people in jobs that aren’t the best paying. Some earn little more than minimum wage, and the Kenney government, in the meantime, is considering privatizing roles in many of these disciplines,” said Jason Heistad, Executive Secretary-Treasurer, Alberta Union of Provincial Employees (AUPE) .

“As for being heard, we can do a lot more by working with the public, but no, I don’t think this government has heard people. We have seen what can happen when people talk with the diabetes issue this week. It comes down to the economics of what utilities provide to communities. These workers went to work, performed excellent service to the public during a global pandemic, and the government ignored the importance of their role. It’s just ideology and that’s a shame. There are elections coming up. »

The AUPE represents approximately 6,000 workers in the Center Zone.

Edmonton-Riverview MPP Lori Sigurdson, former NDP Minister of Seniors and Housing, attended the rally in Red Deer.

“We just want the UCP to play well with health care. The UCP has been attacking professionals since their election. They tore up the contract with the doctors, threatened to cut the salaries of health care workers and people are disillusioned, ”said Sigurdson.

“For people here, it’s important that they email or phone their MPs, especially the two UCP MPs here in Red Deer, and let them know about their concerns about public health care.

Medical students as ad hoc interpreters and trauma by proxy https://jasonpowers.org/medical-students-as-ad-hoc-interpreters-and-trauma-by-proxy/ Fri, 13 May 2022 18:05:47 +0000 https://jasonpowers.org/medical-students-as-ad-hoc-interpreters-and-trauma-by-proxy/ We must educate and provide resources to medical students and institutions.

We must educate and provide resources to medical students and institutions.

REMARK

“I’ve been feeling bad since I got COVID. My chest pain is unbearable. It hurts so bad. I wish I had come earlier but I don’t have health insurance. Please, tell me it’ll be ok. Please.”* I said these words in a sad tone, in pain and with a hint of desperation. That’s the job of an interpreter: relaying everything that is said by a patient. I embodied the feelings of the patient so that the team understood her pain.

Interpretation is its own work of art – a theater where the interpreter receives the lines live and expects to perform them immediately. Before you can process this, you start receiving more lines and continue playing. Except the lines you receive are real words spoken by real patients who are going through deep disease processes. Sometimes you interpret sickness, pain, and grief, while other times you interpret happiness.

When you channel grief and worry, you are also unknowingly enduring vicarious or secondary trauma. The secondary trauma is accentuated by the practice of interpreting by speaking in the first person.1 Vicarious trauma—known interchangeably as secondary trauma—occurs in clinicians, interpreters, and medical students who absorb the traumatic experiences, words, and feelings of their patients.2 Vicarious trauma can be painful and transformative. Symptoms of secondary trauma include reimagining of the traumatic event, intrusive thoughts, irritability, and generalized anxiety, among other post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)-like symptoms.1 Lack of experience and increased exposure to patient stories make medical students more vulnerable to secondary traumatic stress.1

As a medical student without professional training as an interpreter, I act as an ad-hoc interpreter. Often in a healthcare setting, this can be for a family member, physician assistant, nursing staff, and medical students. I started interpreting for my mother when I was about 9 years old. It was then that she injured her shoulder and had several doctor‘s appointments and an operation. Being an ad hoc interpreter and language broker is very common for Latino immigrant children.3 For most of us, interpreting for our loved ones has been what exposed us to the medical field. Some of us have had great experiences, and others have been fueled by injustice. We hoped that our culture, language, and stories would lead to better health care outcomes for our Latinx community.

However, many of us have found ourselves regressing to ad hoc interpreters during our clinical rotations. Several studies have shown that medical students also experience vicarious trauma in wards.1 We may feel grief, anger, shock or sadness during rotations, especially when we lose a patient. What happens to medical students who fulfill both roles? And why is it so important? From what I’ve seen, the majority of my fellow bilingual medical students and ad hoc interpreters come from communities underrepresented in medicine (URiM). We already know that URiM students face structural barriers and racism. Many are the first in their families to go to medical school. What if URiM medical students also bear emotional trauma vicariously as interpreters?

Personally, it was through my own therapy that I gained some insight and was able to process the vicarious emotional trauma I experienced in the wards. It was through my own therapy that I was able to recognize that my role as an ad hoc interpreter was also triggering my previous trauma as an ad hoc child interpreter for my mother during her doctor’s appointments.

It is imperative that physicians, healthcare workers and other professionals recognize the vicarious trauma that medical students can experience during ad hoc interpreting and therefore choose to use professional interpreters instead.4 Healthcare teams can allow medical students to speak to their patients in their native language. However, medical schools and institutions should have clear guidelines, language assessments, and support for students choosing to interpret for LEP patients.5 It is also important that medical students who act as ad hoc interpreters receive therapy services and workshops on vicarious trauma, and are educated on how to set boundaries with their teams. The work, above all, should focus on the institutions to provide these resources and emphasize their importance for the well-being of doctors in training.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 10, 2022) – Last week the University of Kentucky College of Medicine-Northern Kentucky Campus opened a clinic for basic needs in the newly renovated northern Kentucky emergency shelter.

The clinic is known as CCRU (Compassionate Care Reaching yoU, pronounced “crew”), a meaningful name given by the students who run the program to reflect their true mission.

“We really wanted to create a name to show that we’re here for them,” said third-year medical student Amanda Schleper, a native of Northern Kentucky. “It’s really great that we’re all working together for this, to expand medical care to the people who really need it here in my home turf, northern Kentucky.”

the University of Kentucky College of Medicine strives to help provide medical students with experiences that allow them to learn about underserved medicine, inequity in health care, and the social determinants of health. At the North Kentucky campus, students and faculty saw a local need for clinical care and jumped at the chance to help.

“We aim to improve the health of this homeless population because homelessness and health are intimately linked,” said Holly Danneman, MD, assistant professor at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine-Northern Kentucky and doctor for St. Elizabeth Health Care. “The homeless population tends to have a shorter life expectancy, more emergency department (ER) visits and more frequent hospitalizations. Our hope is not only to improve their overall health, but also to improve the utilization of our healthcare system as a whole.

A large portion of the homeless population goes their entire lives without treatment for chronic health conditions because they do not have access or do not know how to access medical care. That’s what makes CCRU so important to this community, says Danneman.

“We bring them the care,” Danneman said. “They know where the shelter is, they seek shelter because of the cold or the rain. And while they are here, they will find eager medical students who are willing to provide care for their basic health care needs.

At the CCRU, two beds are set up to serve the guests staying at the shelter. The medical students and their teachers spent the entire semester organizing supplies and getting everything ready and ready for their opening day.

“In our clinic, we are able to offer basic medical care,” Schleper said. “So we do checkups, check blood pressure and interview patients to come up with a treatment plan for any issues they might be facing.”

The clinic works with a UK GP who works in internal medicine, family medicine or emergency medicine. The doctor gives his time to help these medical students provide appropriate care to these communities in need. The CCRU team also works with local community businesses to help provide comprehensive care.

“We have a current partnership with a local health clinic that can help bring them in the next day to help with medications and chronic conditions,” Danneman said. “We also have a partnership with a local pharmacy, Faith Community Pharmacy, which helps provide free medication to those in need.”

In terms of on-site medications, the CCRU has over-the-counter medications for anything that needs to be treated immediately with medication, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.

And for students, it’s already having a big impact on how they think about patient care.

“I would like to go into family medicine,” Schepler said. “I really like the part where you can build relationships with patients and help them with whatever issues they may be facing. And I think a free clinic like CCRU really ties into that. Hope our guests will start to feel comfortable with us and will come back regularly.”

Schepler says this opportunity is something she’s been looking forward to for years.

“I’m thrilled we were able to start this,” Schepler said. “As part of the inaugural class at the UK College of Medicine-Northern Kentucky Campus, we came here really hoping we could do something so impactful. The COVID-19 pandemic put a pause on some of the opportunities we were considering in my first year, but now the other third year students and I are excited to finally start making a real impact in our community. of northern Kentucky.

Third-year medical student Christa Mattingly is very committed to their mission and says she looks forward to making a real, long-term impact in this community.

“Treating guests at CCRU will give students like me an appreciation for the medical disparities that directly impact people in our community. We will also learn how to help patients navigate barriers in the health care system,” Mattingly said. “Serving at CCRU means changing the stigma and building relationships with a population that is often underserved by the health care system. As students, we are all excited about this opportunity.

Medical students of all levels already find this experience valuable. Zoey Knox, a first-year medical student, believes work experience at CCRU will be an essential part of her education at the UK College of Medicine-Northern Kentucky Campus.

“Serving the homeless population will allow me to witness firsthand the health care disparities and social determinants of health that our community experiences,” Knox said. “It will help me deepen my understanding of how best to serve this community in my future practice. And it will allow me to build the basic clinical and communication skills that will be needed for the rest of my career.

To start, the clinic will be open on a rotational basis on Mondays and Wednesdays, with the hope that they will soon be able to operate the clinic at least twice a week. The teachers at the UK College of Medicine-Northern Kentucky Campus could not be more proud of the hard work and dedication these students have shown.

“From the minute they started, these students really took the ball and ran with it,” Danneman said. “They’ve been so eager and excited to get this up and running. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to see them turn this dream into reality. They have handled every detail beautifully, have so much heart and determination, and ensure that this clinic is life changing, not only for the patients we serve, but also for the students who serve them.

Go-Getters are distinguished by their resilience through challenges, transforming knowledge into action, and service to their community. Who better exemplifies these qualities than Grainne McGinley?

Grainne McGinley

Grainne McGinley ’22

Grainne McGinley ’22 is a College of Health Professions Nurse Major on the Pleasantville campus, well known for her dedication to service. A Jefferson Prize winner and member of the National Service Gamma Sigma Sigma sorority, she dedicates what little free time she has to charities, from local animal shelters to food banks to overseas missions. (Seriously, we can’t list everything she’s done, but check out a sampling of some of her community service here!)

Her love for volunteering and her passion for caring both stem from an injury when she was young. At the age of three, a kettle-related burn threw her into the path of a volunteer ambulance corps, and their care stayed with her. She explains: “When I came of age, I made sure to start volunteering with the people who saved my life and the lives of so many others, and became a medical assistant in the ambulance service.”

“When I reached adulthood, I made sure to start volunteering with the people who saved my life and the lives of so many others.”

When she arrived at Pace’s Pleasantville campus, she already had a growing passion for health care, especially heart health. During her sophomore year, she realized that only a third of the campus had access to automatic external defibrillators (AEDs), life-saving medical equipment. It has partnered with the Student Government Association and has added 11 new AEDs to date.

But she didn’t stop there. She currently works as an emergency room technician at Greenwich Hospital and White Plains Hospital, where she has seen first-hand how, in her own words, “CPR and access to proper medical and health education have saved the lives of so many people. »

More often than not, tireless helpers like McGinley work behind the scenes with little recognition, but her peers and professors were so inspired by her work ethic that they voted for her to speak at Commencement. “It was a big surprise for me,” she says. “I’m really thrilled to have this honor to have some closing remarks and to share them with those who have touched me along the way.”

“I really had the opportunity to become a new person and have the experiences that I wanted to have.”

At the time of this interview, she is still working on her speech, but she continues to bring it back to the ideas of working together, seeking opportunities and making a difference. In other words, Opportunities.

When asked what Opportunities means to her, Grainne reflects, “I’m a first-generation student. The opportunity that I had to come to Pace and not only to further my education, but also to make those connections, with my friends, with the faculty, with my future employers in clinical sciences – I really had the opportunity to become a new person, and in the experiences that I wanted to have.

McGinley’s plans for after the start? You can bet on continued community service, as she is on her final steps to getting a CPR instructor license and hopes to bring CPR training to her local community. She has final nursing exams to take and then hopes to continue working in local hospitals, hopefully in an intensive burn unit. With all she has already given, she hopes to give even more. “I would like the opportunity to work with people when they need help the most.”

Does your cat really hate you? https://jasonpowers.org/does-your-cat-really-hate-you/ Mon, 02 May 2022 22:22:00 +0000 https://jasonpowers.org/does-your-cat-really-hate-you/ Dogs wear their hearts on their sleeves.

Dogs wear their hearts on their sleeves. Cats — or at least some cats sometimes — can spend years by your side without it being entirely clear that they know or care who you are. A look vaguely resembling contentment passes over their faces and you think triumphantly, “See! My cat does not despise me.

Which might very well not be the case. But if it was, wouldn’t you want to know? To make sure you’re not lying, we reached out to a number of feline experts to find out if your cat really hates you or not.

In the end, it might just be living in deathly fear of you. Or you could just be sad and insecure and use your cat’s totally neutral facial expression to feel bad about yourself. Or, the science isn’t totally on it, it might actually think you suck. Either way, our experts have provided plenty of ways to enhance even emotionally healthy man-cat relationships.

Mikel Maria Delgado, a postdoctoral researcher at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine (and also a feline behavior consultant at Feline Minds and co-author of Total chat mojo) said that for some reason people seem really obsessed with projecting their own anxieties about their relationship with their cat on the cats themselves. Maybe it’s because they compare cats to dogs.

“Cats have fewer facial muscles than dogs, so they have fewer expressions that mimic humans, whereas dogs have more facial expressions, and those expressions are closer to ours than cats,” said Delgado said. “Cats present a more neutral palette to people, so when someone meets a cat, it may not be obvious to them what the cat is feeling just by looking at them.”

That said, cats will often have favorite people at home, and part of that is likely due to socialization. A cat that has been exposed to many different types of people when young will be more adaptable to different types of people when it gets older, Delgado explained.

“A kitten who is welcomed into a quiet home with one very quiet woman will probably be more comfortable with women later on. We know, for example, that females tend to be smaller, we tend to be quieter, we tend to have higher-pitched voices, and those are all things that are less threatening to a cat.” she added.

“When a cat ‘dislikes’ someone, the root of that feeling or behavior is often fear, and that fear is often simply due to the lack of positive exposures. Interactions also tend to be better if you let the cat decide and initiate contact with you, rather than reaching out to pet a cat who is clearly afraid of you.

Delgado recommends learning After on cats in general, and on their cat in particular. What does your cat react to? Do they like to play with toys, and if so, what types? Do they like to be petted, and if so, where?

Cats, if you interact with them, they’re not just going to lay there, she added, they’re going to purr, or rub against your petting, or relax their bodies, or they’re going to do the opposite: they’re going. becoming tense, or starting to wag the tail, or rolling the ears back, all of which are classic body language signs of excitement or irritation.

“To be honest, the best way to make your cat like you is to do more things they like and less things they don’t. If they don’t like being picked up and held like a baby , don’t pick them up and hold them like a baby,” she said.

A lot of it is about creating an environment and establishing social interactions that allow your cat to succeed. Having a good relationship with your cat is a two-way street, not only does your cat hate you, but you provide your cat with what it needs to enjoy living with you.

“It’s important that people recognize that the cat is not a jerk and that it doesn’t hate you, and that they understand the motivation for their behavior, which is almost always fear. Hopefully that gives people a little more empathy for their cats,” Delgado added. “It’s important for people to recognize that the cat isn’t a jerk and doesn’t hate you, and that they understand the motivation of their cat. behavior, which is almost always fear.”

Similarly, Carlo Siracusa, assistant clinical professor, behavioral medicine, University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, said that animals, including cats, develop preferences, just like humans. They might get along well with one person but not with another. Usually it’s nothing personal, they don’t get into a fight with that specific person, there are just things the person does that the cat considers less safe or less appealing. This applies to cats’ relationships with each other, on farms, for example, cats tend to congregate and decide who stays in the group and who doesn’t.

“The main difference is that when cats live in a semi-wild state, they can leave the group if they don’t like the specific company of a person or another animal. But the majority of cats in indoors don’t have that option, they have to share the environment with an individual that they don’t necessarily get along with very well,” Siracusa said.

“Humans are very physical in their relationships, they want to hold their cat, hug their cat, etc. This can be terrible for any animal that doesn’t appreciate your presence, but it’s even worse for cats, because the way which cats express their preferences through closeness Unlike humans or dogs, they don’t have much physical contact, even when they love a person.

Often, if they don’t get along with a particular person, that person will take it personally and try to increase their physical interactions with the cat, and because cats aren’t physical animals, that just makes them worse. make things worse.

One thing you can do to improve your relationship with your cat is to make sure he has a place where he can hide from others when he wants some privacy. All the things that are essential for the cat – like food, litter, water, a comfortable resting place, some environmental enrichment or some toys – should be there, so if I’m a cat and I want to eat my food, I can be alone. We tend to call this a core zone.

According to Sharon Crowell-Davis, Professor, Behavior &; Anatomy, University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine, with a focus on behavioral issues in cats, while some cats avoid certain people, growl at others, and sometimes even pounce to attack, she would never use the word “hate “.

“Although I think it’s entirely plausible, given how close their brain structure is to ours, that they have some sort of emotion that would be analogous to our ‘hatred.’ Cats that run and hide don’t hate you, they’re afraid of you,” she explained.

“People often mistakenly think of cats as predators, not realizing that they are also prey. Much of cat behavior is driven by their need to be safe and not be killed.

One of the best tips Crowell-Davis has for cat lovers is to stay still when you meet a new cat and let the cat decide when you’re no longer a danger to them.
