Keeping your cat happy and healthy is important for his well-being. Regular vet appointments, vaccinations, and time for play can help ensure your cat is by your side for years to come. Explore tips in The Anti-Cruelty Society's Pet Care Library including health and behavior information to help your favorite feline live a rich and fulfilling life. 

Cat-proofing your home is one way to help direct your feline's behavior and keep him safe. For example, putting scratching posts in front of furniture will not only provide your cat with an appropriate diversion, but will also divert your cat from damaging your decor.

Plus, keeping toxic plants such as lilies, tulips, and Sago palms out of your home is vital to keeping the cats in your life healthy. Find a list of toxic plants and information on what to do if your cat ingests a dangerous plant. 

Feline enrichment provides exercise, play, and relief from boredom. Find out about food puzzles, special toys, and ways to engage your feline.
