As responsible owners cat health care should be very important to us all. Keeping cats healthy is not as difficult as you may think but does require some effort, knowledge and even some discipline.

Do you have a healthy cat?
We may think we have a healthy cat but what are the true signs of a healthy cat? Your cat will spend most of their life sleeping, eating and grooming. The rest of the time is spent doing what cats do best, patrolling their territory, hunting and playing. A house cat will be deprived of these activities therefore we may need to intervene. It is important that a house cat receives enough mental and physical stimulation to help avoid cat behaviour problems and obesity.
Cats require various vaccinations to protect them from serious illness. It is important that your cat has all their required vaccinations and booster jabs. Most of you reading this page will have your cats on a vaccination programme, but do you know what the vaccinations are and what they do?
