So, how come my cat has got fleas? Cats that are allowed outside pick up fleas by socializing with other cats or just by walking through territory where other cats have been. Think that your indoor only cat is safe? Not so, fleas can travel into your home on your clothing (white garments seem particularly attractive to fleas). Once inside your home they easily transfer themselves to your cat who is a much more desirable host.
This is the most frequently asked question by cat owners. After all, you want to know how long it's going to be before you need to start worrying about the birth!
So your barrel-shaped cat has been lounging around your home now for the past week or two, eating enough food to fuel an army and generally looking extremely pregnant. You've distinctly been able to see and feel her kittens moving about in her belly for some time now and you've calculated their date of birth as accuractely as you are able.
Unfortunately there's no getting away from that fact that vaccinating your cat is going to cost you money. So why should you even consider having to pay out money on something that you cat doesn't need? After all, she's not sick or injured, so why have all the aggravation of going to your vet at all? Death, is the reason. Painful death and the heartbreak it will bring to you and your family should your cat catch one of the preventable diseases that will needlessly end her life.
Just about every cat owner has to face this problem sooner or later. You need to get your cat into their carrier to visit the vet, be taken to the cattery or to travel to another home and what do you know? Your loving and ever-present cat has scooted off in the opposite direction at the speed of sound!
If you have a cat, then its health and happiness will be very important to you. People spend a lot of money on food, treats, toys and sometimes even clothing for their pets. They also invest in grooming, training and medical care. Another thing that is very important which many people forget about is having healthy teeth.
