Welcome to today’s Pet Parade and Take Your Cat to the Vet Day 2018!
Thank you all for visiting us. It’s been lovely to met some new friends, and see our social media friends have followed us to Wednesday’s wide open spaces. Please invite your buddies to join our growing group of friends.
This week we have another blogger for you to meet, and also an important announcement for cat owners. Today is:-
Take Your Cat To The Vet Day 2018
I can hear all the dog owners scratching their heads saying WHY a special cat day, we just had Black Cat Appreciation Day after all. Here’s the thing though…….
Some people do NOT take their cats to the vet ever and this is seriously wrong. Cats need regular check ups. Even indoor cats. They need them every year, just like pups and humans do.
Please pals think about this, DO THIS. Your cat may never have seen the vet surgery and here are some of the reasons people give;
- I can’t get them in a carrier;
- They hiss at me if I take them in the car * sob *
- It might be expensive…
- They look fine
- They are only 2, 7 or whatever……..
While humans are used to visiting the dentist, doctor and optician regularly for health assessments, many cat owners forget to take their moggies to the vet for check-ups and instead only when a medical problem arises. This, of course, results in costly bills which might otherwise have been avoided if routine checks, worming, inoculations and blood screening were carried out. – DotY
No Excuses About Vets or Cats….
Take your cat to the vet. Make an appointment because this will give you peace of mind for another year of family love. More than one cat? Take one a week (or month) and mark it in your diary or have a ‘phone alarm repeat once a year.
Don’t let the Pet Parade Pass You By!
This Week’s Featured Blogger
Meet author and cat lover Mark from Erin the Cat Princess.

and last week was Chapter 3
We are lucky, Erin and Mark are replaying the latest adventure for us on the Pet Parade and you do not have to go back very far * high paw *. This week will take up up to Chapter 4, so you will not have a lot of catching up to do – just grab a coffee or a niptini and enjoy a quick catch-up.
