All cats, even cats who never interact with other animals or venture outdoors, should be examined at least once a year and receive vaccinations against rabies and other diseases, as recommended by their veterinarian. Regular veterinary visits, as well as preventative care, such as keeping cats indoors and providing good nutrition, are key to ensuring the highest quality of life for cats.

Love is the flower of life, and blooms unexpectedly and without law,
and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour
of its duration. ~Unknown

How to play with your cat: Playtime isn’t just for cats—it’s for their people, too. Your cat’s speed and grace will amaze you as she dashes about, trying to catch her “prey.”
Toss a crumpled ball of paper for her to chase—she may even bring it back to you. Some cats love to “fetch” so much that they will actually initiate the game by dropping a toy in your lap for you to throw. Source: The Humane Society of the United States
Why it’s important for cats to play: Toys and regular playtime are part of providing your cat with a stimulating environment, which makes for a happy and healthy cat. Play gives them an outlet for their energy, mental and physical stimulation, the opportunity to satisfy their instinctual hunting drive and a chance to bond with you.
