Felis catus, better known as the domestic house cat, has a long history of living with humans while at the same time maintaining much of the species’ independent ways. 

Never declaw your cat as that is an inhumane surgery that completely alters your cat's paws.

Keep your cat indoors to ensure he/she is safe from diseases, predators, and toxic compounds.

​​Proper care of an indoor cat requires offering them stimulation, exercise, and a healthy, nutritious diet.
