Clean water should always be available. Food and water dishes should be washed frequently.
GROOMING— Brush frequently to keep your cat’s coat clean, reduce shedding and decrease the occurrence of hairballs.
EXERCISE— Cats enjoy toys that jump and/or dance around, providing a life-like appearance. Their predator instincts make this play time an enjoyable exercise.
LICENSES and VACCINATIONS— Check with local governing authorities and abide by licensing regulations. Make sure to ask the shelter if the animal has been spayed or neutered, and what kind of vaccinations they received. The animal should have subsequent annual visits to a veterinarian to receive exams and shots.
