Frequently Asked Questions
How is it possible that an indoor cat can get worms or fleas if they never go outside?
A non-profit organisation
Worms and fleas can get into your house in some very strange but unavoidable ways. Just by walking outside on the grass your can pick up worm and flea eggs on your shoes which are then brought into the house. This is why it is very important to deworm and deflea your cats once a month.
Is it necessary to sterilise my cat?
Sterilising your cat is the healthy option. Without sterilisation, they run the risk of getting cancer in their reproductive organs. Sterilisation also stops the births of thousnads of unwanted kittens that fill up the organisations. Another more pleasing reason is that sterilising a male cat will stop him getting into fights and spraying your furniture and sterilising female a cat will stop her yowling at night. Overall, rather have your cat sterilised!
Is it true that I can't give my cat milk or tuna?
Yes that is true! Cats are actually lactose intolerant and milk gives them quite a runny tummy. Tuna also causes a problem but only if it is all that the cat eats. As a treat every now and then and in small doses it should be fine but not as the staple diet.
