Depends on the cat
Are you planning on Declawing?
Depends on the cat
Declawing is a major surgery which involves not only the removal of the claw, but the removal of the last finger bone (known as the distal phalanx) of a cat's toe. Declawing as been linked to aggression, peeing outside the litter box, and over-grooming behavior. Not to mention life long pain (arthritis, back pain) as a cat is forced to walk differently once their toes have been amputated.
Did you know cats have a low thirst drive and giving them SOME CANNED WET FOOD is necessary in their DAILY diet to maintain a long & healthy life? You will avoid many health issues (less vet bills) this way!
Had no idea
Dry food left out is fine, but PLEASE don't forget to give your cat AT LEAST half of a 5.5 oz. can of wet food (add a few tablespoons of water too if you can) EVERY DAY as this is the best chance for your cat to live 15-20 years without major health issues. Better yet, give your cat wet food twice a day with the added water. Cat's are known for their LOW thirst drive and need much for liquids in their diets. They will not drink the amount of water they need on their own (not even with those fancy cat fountains). Wet food is much higher in moisture/water content than dry food is and the reason it is so important (wet food is 80% moisture while dry food is only 10%) . Giving your cat a half of a 5.5 oz. can once every single day comes to $7.50 a month (pennies a day!). A lack of sufficient water causes dehydration, which is the #1 cause of death in cats 5 years of age and older. Dehydration can lead to painful and sometimes fatal urinary tract and kidney diseases, obesity, heart problems and diabetes. Simply put: "CAT'S NEED WET FOOD NOW - FOR FEWER PROBLEMS LATER."
Did you know that keeping your pet's mouth healthy can give your pet a LONGER life span? 70% of cats and 80% of dogs have some form of dental disease by the time they are 3 years old. There are easy NO-brushing ways to help your pet fight dental disease and help him live a longer and happier life!
Had no idea
Good oral hygiene can help prevent diseases or secondary infections, such as liver, heart, kidney, and joint disease from bacteria originating in the mouth and spreading through the body by the bloodstream. There are brushing and NO-brushing techniques to help your furry family members. Enzymatic pet toothpaste (beef or poultry) & toothbrush is the best way, but there are oral care gels, dental wipes, and even a liquids you add directly to your pet's water bowl. Dental disease is very painful and pets suffer silently - Please help them fight this disease! My dog and cat fight over the toothpaste (yes they see this time as a special treat), so don't think this task is impossible.

Are you aware that animals can live 20 years or longer depending on the type and breed?
Are you aware that an animal shelter can euthanize upwards of 50 pets in a SINGLE DAY? Our local "NO KILL" shelter still euthanzed 349 pets last year. These are not safe places. Please never let the shelter be the last place your pet lives (we take any animal back if it is not working out).
Are you willing to allow a representative of FNS to visit your home?
