dogs, cats & small animals

Meow! Purrrrrfectly practical primer on cats.

Cats are a topic near and dear to my heart.  When I first moved out on my own, the first new species I added to my household was a pair of barn cats.  Ambercat and Sabrina blessed me with lessons in cat care, cat feeding, cat behavior and just general feline fun.
Later, my neighbor’s cats moved in with all their kittens.  24 spay and neuters later (phew) and I had quite the mousing crew in my barn.

Most recently, a fabulous kitten decided we needed a house cat and hitched a ride home and into our hearts. Sinh has charmed us with her antics.

My single most favorite resource for learning about cat diet, and cats in general, is The Natural Cat by Anitra Frazier.

I also stumbled upon this excellent cat blog The Natural Cat Blog., including an article Today’s Best Cat Foods .

My own cats get a variety of holistic commercial grain-free cat foods, dry kibble for the outdoor cats that hunt, and a mix of dry and wet for Sinh indoors.  I have my favorite vitamin/mineral mix, enzymes and prebiotic for them as well.  See for more information in the Cat section.

I provide filtered water, as our well water is hard and high in copper and iron.  For any folks with city cats, a filter becomes even more important to remove fluoride and chlorine.

I follow the same vaccine principles that I follow for all my animals, and do the bare minimum necessary by law.  You can read more about vaccinations in this blog post.

I deal with fleas using a variety of healthy strategies.

And that’s it.  Simple, healthy common sense support for healthy cats.
