A healthy pet is a happy pet. Proper nutrition, regular check-ups, and good grooming are key elements in assuring your pet stays healthy and happy.
But there are many factors to consider when deciding what is right for your cat, such as what and how much to feed him, and why it's important to spay/neuter.
Many people choose cats as pets because they think that a cat is an easy pet to live with -- one that is self-sufficient-- not as "needy" as dogs are. Actually, cats often cause lots of mishap and mayhem. Fortunately, most cat behaviour problems have simple solutions.
Spaying & Neutering

Female cats in heat will yelp and howl for four or five days each estrus cycle. Intact males tend to spray, (spraying urine around the house)
Millions of unwanted cats and dogs of all ages are euthanized each year or live on the streets as a result of pet overpopulation. Please help us stop pet overpopulation by spaying or neutering your pet. Spaying (technically called Ovariohysterectomy) is the surgical removal of the ovaries.
Neutering (technically called Castration) is the surgical removal of the testicles. Many vets require the cat to be at least 6 months old. The younger the cat, the easier quicker they recover.
