1. Vaccinations: personalized for the breed, lifestyle and risk.

2. Sterilization: unless a valuable breeder, do early spay/neuter.

3. Parasite control: for internal and external parasites.

4. Optimal nutrition: as recommended by your veterinarian.

5. Weight management: don't let cats become overweight or obese.

6. Dental care: cats need dental care, too.

7. Socialization and behavior training: friendly cats taught good manners.

8. Easy access to fresh, clean water: under-hydration is a major problem with cats.

9. Environmental enrichment: indoor cats need stimulation and accommodation to reduce stress.

10. Twice yearly exams by the veterinarian: instinctively cats hide their illnesses. Only veterinarians have the experience, training and resources available to catch things early on, and to look past obvious problems to potential ones.

Yes, cats are good at hiding the fact they are sick...My Bootsie was so sick when I took her in I
had to put her down, almost done me in. She was everything to me, especially after my husband passed.
