Don't Ever Do These Things to Your Cat
By Kathy Blumenstock
With a cat or two around the house, even the most dedicated pet parent may slack off and take Kitty’s presence for granted. Even the simplest oversight may have big consequences on your cat’s well being and quality of life. Here are 8 things you should NEVER do to your fave feline.
Editors’ Note: The slideshow “8 Things You Should Never Do to Your Cat” was not created as a definitive and complete guide to cat care, but rather as a reminder of the small daily interactions many established cat owners have with their beloved companions.
Our goal was for cat owners to enhance those often-overlooked, common instances with increased presence and concern via suggestions from our experts. While the petMD team does not recommend declawing, that practice was not included in this list as it is considered to be an extreme measure and not something that fit into our original concept for this piece. That said, many of our readers on social media have requested a thorough treatment on the topic and we plan to deliver one in the coming weeks. Thank you as always for your heartfelt and passionate comments. We have the utmost respect for you and ask that you extend that respect on to one another as well.
