Taking the cat’s pulse

It is fairly easy to take your cat’s pulse, as long as you remember that the wrist isn’t the right spot. The best pulse spot on the cat is the femoral artery, which you can feel on the inside of the thigh. The normal heart rate for a cat is anywhere from 120 to 240 beats per minute while at rest. (Yes, that is faster than the human heart, which is about 72 beats per minute. A small animal’s heart beats faster than a larger animal’s heart.)
