Is Your Outdoor Cat Carrying a Stowaway?

October 3rd, 2009 · No Comments · Cat Health, Tick and Flea Control

tick and flea controlWhile it may be true that indoor-outdoor cats have more fun, there are a few unique problems that occasionally plague their owners. You might have decided to let your cat go outside in the hopes that he would rely on the litter tray a bit less. Perhaps you wanted him to find alternative places to do his scratching aside from the living room couch. These are both valid plans, but there are other eventualities you should be prepared to handle.

Tick and flea control could become an issue, especially if your cat has access to a wooded area. He might enjoy frolicking and playing among the trees, but those tiny parasites are more than happy to latch on and go for a ride. Removing ticks from a cat’s hide can be unpleasant for everyone involved, so it’s always better to take preventative measures. Medications are available in spray or tablet form.
