Happy Spring!

Everyone is enjoying the more frequent sunny days now. Getting fresh air and sunshine is important for kitties but so is staying safe. We most often think of cats as being great hunters since they often keep your home free of the occasional moth, spider or fly that makes it inside. However kitties are also prey for many animals and that's one reason they are capable of sleeping "with one eye open" so to speak. They need to stay alert to dangerous dogs, coyotes, hawks or eagles (or frightening and loud humans they dislike). Speeding cars are unfortunately one thing cats are ill prepared for. Keeping your kitty enclosed in a catio, on a harness, or staying close by him for supervised only outdoor time in a fenced yard are options where he can be safe yet still experience the outdoors. Bright days also offer fabulous conditions for some charming pictures!
