A few important things to remember:
Never use dog flea treatments on cats. They are much too strong and can kill your cat.
Advantage and Advantix sound similar, but never use Advantix on cats. It is made only for dogs and is also much too strong for cats (and can kill them).

While we don’t agree 100% with this video (for instance, we believe most cats ARE social animals—of course, on their own terms), this video has a great deal of good information on understanding cat behavior.
Cats Protection who made the video, is the UK’s largest feline welfare charity, rehoming and reuniting around 52,000 cats and kittens every year through its network of over 250 volunteer-run branches, 29 adoption centers and one homing center. The charity also promotes the benefits of neutering and produces a wide range of cat care information for owners.

Some say cats only show what you think is love in order to get food.
Watch and decide for yourself.
Are you a confirmed “dog person” or a “cat person”, or both? In this video popular cat behaviorist and animal activist Jackson Galaxy shares his theory why you may pick one species over the other, or whether you’re just an “animal person” and can relate to both, especially if you just try. With so many cats and dogs filling our shelters nationwide, it’s a terrible shame to have love and lives go to waste if you are willing and able to adopt another furkid. It’s something to think about.
Season 5 of Jackson Galaxy’s “My Cat From Hell” premiers April 26th on Animal Planet. Be sure to check your local listings for broadcast times.
In today’s Friday Film “Cat Daddy” Jackson Galaxy goes into detail about why declawing cats is inhumane and shouldn’t be done.
