Grooming Your Cat with Care

Cats are typically pretty good at grooming themselves and maintaining their own appearance. Their tongues and teeth are made for smoothing out and cleaning their fur to prevent mats and tangles. However, some regularly-scheduled maintenance time from owners can help cats keep their smooth, sleek appearance, with some great benefits.

The $1800 Ribbon: Dangerous Foreign Object Obstruction in Cats

We knew the first thing my daughter would want to do upon return from a long weekend trip to Chicago was see her cats. I had plenty of time to think of the right way to break the news to her. State the positive first, then tell her what happened. That’s it, right? “Johnny’s OK. He’s still at the emergency pet hospital. The surgery went well.

Fruits & Veggies in Cat Food

Cats are obligate carnivores, which means they must eat meat in order to survive. However, more and more cat foods are being created that also include fruits and veggies. While cats must have meat, they can also benefit from the hidden health enchancing effects that fruits and vegetables give them.

If you’re a cat owner, chances are you have other things on your mind than dental care for your cat. But, your kitty needs her teeth cleaned regularly. Even though it might be a daunting proposition to brush your cat’s teeth, it’s something that cat owners should do on a regular basis, along with regular checkups at the veterinarian.
