Indoor Safety Precautions
Fleas and ticks on your fur-kid, oh my! That’s right pet parents; it is flea and tick season once again. Whether you live in the city, suburbs, or out in the country, fleas and ticks are prevalent no matter where you reside, so don’t let your surroundings fool you, your pet is prone to these parasites regardless. But don’t be alarmed, there are several ways to prepare yourself and protect your pet from these little buggers. The most important thing is becoming knowledgeable about fleas and ticks and then taking the necessary steps to prevent your pet from becoming a target.
Although cats do a great job cleaning themselves, it is always a good idea to take them to be bathed and groomed by an experienced professional at least every 3-4 months to ensure their skin and coat are healthy and to reduce dander. Generally, pet parents leave their cat's grooming up to the cat because they believe that he is effectively grooming himself.
