Most have heard the old saying, "When the cat is away, the mice will play." With the cat's keen instinct for hunting prey, they've served a valuable purpose in the home ever since they were first domesticated. Cat lovers keep their pets for many reasons, with companionship certainly toward the top of the list. And while a cat's independent nature might give the impression that they can care for themselves, responsible cat owners know that proper care adds to the longevity. They take steps to ensure that their home is a safe environment for their pet, the diet they provide is proper, and their pet receives proper heath checkups from a vet.
