The call of the great outdoors can be tempting for our feline companions! The breeze blowing, birds chirping, sun shining, rodents scampering, and plenty of interesting places to explore is essentially a call to their instinctual behaviors. If your cat has ever sat at the window, longingly and wistfully viewing the outdoors, you might have been tempted to give in to their desires. While all these great outdoor experiences await them, so do dangers. So, what is the answer to the age-old question-- should I let my cat outside?
While scrolling the internet for funny cat photos, it isn’t uncommon to come across an adorable fat cat. Lovingly referred to as “Chonks” on the internet, a lot of people just think fat cats have more to love. Unfortunately, just as with humans, if your loving feline family member is overweight, they face future complications such as a shortened lifespan, medical complications, and an uphill battle against the bulge should their owners choose to correct their bad habits. Most of the time extra weight is packed on by well-meaning owners.
As cat owners, we have all smelled THAT smell. The smell of cat urine, pungent and unpleasant to say the least. Usually, the smell just means its time to scoop the litter box, but what if it’s coming from outside of the box?
