Even though more Americans own cats than dogs overall, a recent study by Bayer shows that cats are only receiving half as many check ups per year as dogs do. The reason for this problem is that cat owners, an estimated 81% of them feel that cats are so independent that they require little attention.
We’ve gone over this before and as a cat owner that’s easily the biggest mistake you can make. Just because your cat is independent doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be cared for and attended to like you would your own body. Be sure to establish some consistency with your vet and make sure your cat is going regularly to check ups at least once a year.
Should there be issues then obviously you may have to go more. Don’t neglect your cat’s health!
