    8 Easy Ways to Help Cats Age Comfortably and Happily

    As cats age, their bodies endure many changes. They start to slow down, sleep more and might experience more stiffness or pain than they used to.

    Thanks to scooping and cleaning, cat owners are likely to be more familiar with their pet’s litter boxes than they’d like to be.

    How to Identify and Treat an Abscess in Your Cat

    If you own more than one cat, you’ve likely had to break up your fair share of kitty skirmishes. When the claws come out, your cats are at risk of sustaining an injury.

    July is Pet Parasite Awareness Month

    Wouldn’t life be so much easier if you could read your pet’s thoughts? For one, you’d know right away if something was wrong with their health.
