Spring goals for you and your cat!

Spring is a season that is loved by both humans and animals alike. The warmth of the sun, the sound of birds chirping, and the beautiful blooming flowers are all things that can be enjoyed by cats as well. Here are some additional tips to help you make the most out of the spring season with your furry friend:

  1. Keep your cat's vaccines up-to-date: As the weather warms up, cats tend to spend more time outside. This can increase their risk of contracting diseases such as feline leukemia. Make sure your cat's vaccines are up-to-date to keep them protected.

  2. Watch out for ticks and fleas: Ticks and fleas are more active in the spring and can be a nuisance for both you and your cat. Keep your cat protected with a flea and tick preventative, and check them regularly for any signs of infestation. Be wary of parasite treatments you can buy at the pet shop or supermarket - some work well, but many are not at all effective. Always check with your vet.

  3. Provide plenty of fresh water: With the warmer weather, cats tend to drink more water to stay hydrated. Make sure your cat has access to fresh water at all times, and consider adding some ice cubes to their water bowl to keep it cool.

  4. Check for allergies: Just like humans, cats can also suffer from allergies and for many cats they flare up in the spring. Keep an eye out for any signs of allergies, such as excessive itching, sneezing, or runny eyes. If you suspect your cat has allergies, talk to your vet about possible treatment options.

  5. Keep your cat active: With the longer days and warmer weather, spring is the perfect time to get your cat active and playing, and lose weight if they need to! Take your cat for a walk, play games with them, or invest in some new toys to keep them entertained.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your cat stays healthy and happy during the spring season. So, get out there and enjoy the beautiful weather with your furry friend!
