- Vaccinations really are a must. Cats need to be protected
against diseases that can be caught through contact with other cats and
- Cats need to be regularly treated with flea, tick and
worming medication all year round.
- Give your cat a collar and ensure it has your contact
details on and also have your cat microchipped.
- Keep your cat indoors in the evenings as they can become
startled and dazzled by car headlights. Get your cat into the habit of being
fed at dusk to make it easier for you to call him in at this time.

- Neuter both male and female cats to reduce the risk of
disease, pregnancy and to stop toms from wandering for miles increasing the
chances of getting lost or harmed on the roads.
- Install the ProtectaPet

containment system prevents cats from gaining access to roads, reduces the risk
