Hi – thanks for your email. Cats can die from a variety of diseases and conditions. In some ways, they are like people in that we all will die someday of something. It may be that we are hit by a car, or have a heart condition or cancer. Cats can get hundreds of diseases from which they can die.

If you are interested, check out our cat disease library. https://petplace.uat.petpartners.com/cat-health.aspx
