This problem might indicate a urinary tract infection -

LUTD (lower urinary tract disorder.)

the hair

This can help prevent many things like hairballs

and you can see if any rashes or skin problems occur.

interaction you might have with it.

d. All of the above (a. Stopping roaming and marking

behavior, b. Stopping unwanted litters, c. Preventing

certain types of cancers)

teeth clean and keeps your cat healthy.

--8. True or False:

--9. How often should you take your cat to the vet?

d. At least once a year

The vet can send you a reminder in the mail to help

keep you and your furry baby on track. Also, if you

have a senior cat - age 9 and older, it may be a good

idea to take him for more frequent check ups.



--10. It's important to know your cat's favorite hiding

places, sleeping, eating and litter box habits, plus

a cat's normal pulse rate, respiratory rate and

temperature - BECAUSE...

d. You'll know when your cat is deviating from

his usual habits and be able to give your vet

a helpful report in case of an emergency.

change, then you can tell your vet the changes you

have observed.



These are just some of things most of you already know, andare the basic rules to help keep your cat in tip top shape so he can live a long and healthy life as your beloved pet companion.



Did you get 100? Great! If not, that's OKAY! If you've

learned something, especially if your are a "newly owned" human, that's great too! I am happy to be a part of your learning experience about your precious cat!
Authors like cats because they are such quiet, lovable, wise creatures, and cats like authors for the same reasons.
