Cats have been with us for thousands of years as companions, guardians, and friends.
These days we tend to appreciate them more for their cuteness and the affection they show us than for their mousing and hunting abilities.
They have joined our families and like any family member, we want them to be happy.
Here are a few tips that will keep your cat healthy & happy.
1. Spay or Neuter Your Cat
People can easily project their feelings onto their pets, and so it might appear to be mean to deny your beloved cat a chance to have a family. However, the truth is that your pet will most likely be better off after being spayed or neutered. Being in heat is often uncomfortable for a cat, and pregnancies can be complicated and dangerous.
More than that, there is still a serious problem in most places with stray cats and dogs.
