Have you ever bought something that you thought your cat would love only for it to be totally ignored? It happens to all of us. It’s very”cat-ish” to keep us guessing about their likes and, more to the point, dislikes. The result is that we keep trying to deliver the best cat gifts to them in the hope that they’ll be happy and healthy for as long as possible, which is why we keep trying. What can we say? We love cats!Continue…
Cat owners are typically highly attuned to the needs and desires of their pet cats. After all, when they’re looking and feeling their absolute best, it’s obvious to all. When they aren’t in tip-top shape, however, they might try to hide symptoms (and they’re pretty successful at this, at least for a time). When you have the ability to know when your cat is sick, you can intervene immediately. Since time is of the essence in most feline ailments, a quick assessment and action could save a cat’s life.Continue…
Ahh … the smell of fresh pine needles, the twinkle of lights, and the aroma of fresh-baked cookies. As you transform your home into a festive wonderland filled with new decorations, winter plants, and sweet treats, Cat Care of Vinings is here with a few reminders for making the holidays safer for the feline members of your household.Continue…
One of the greatest attributes of the feline species is also partly to blame when they don’t get the help they need. Indeed, cats are secretive, mysterious, and dead set against revealing any signs of weakness. It is their stealthy nature that hides the truth even from the most experienced and involved cat owners.
Knowing the signs that your cat is sick is a great place to start, but it’s not always clear or easy. However, being able to identify symptoms can help you address illness or injury in a timely fashion.Continue…
There’s a certain power in being prepared. Knowing exactly what to do when an occasion arises gives us the confidence to get through a frightening or stressful situation. But the sudden force and unpredictable course of natural disasters can relegate any plans made in advance to the back burner. Our fear goes into overdrive and panic sets in.
If cats are a part of your family, they are utterly dependent on you to know what to do in the event of an emergency. Disaster preparedness for cats is pretty straightforward, but several items require immediate understanding and quick action.Continue…
Cats seem like they come perfectly skilled at living with humans, as if the learning curve to cohabitation doesn’t apply to them. While it’s true that cats are pretty savvy at picking up the routine of a new household, they do benefit from learning some basics from their owners.
Luckily, kitten training is fairly straightforward. When they know what to do (and, perhaps more importantly, where to do it!), cats can enjoy lifelong health and happiness at home.Continue…
Organisms that live on or inside other species at their host’s expense aren’t welcome in our homes, but sometimes they come in without an invitation. All these blood suckers need are hosts to feed from, and cats are easy targets no matter the season. The war between cats and parasites rages on year round, but parasite infestations are easy to prevent.Continue…

Did you know we offer grooming for long haired cats? We don’t always recommend shaving them down simply for shedding, but a lot of owners with long haired cats choose shave-downs to prevent matting and hairballs!
There are some good solutions to reduce your cat’s shedding, which is why we are devoting an entire blog on this hairy situation!Continue…
If you’ve been the proud owner of a cat for many years, it’s probably time to consider their aging process if you haven’t already. Cats age faster than we do, and as a result, they benefit from routine wellness checks every 6 months once they hit the age of 8. Increasing their annual exams from 1 to 2 times a year helps to prevent age-related issues and detect health conditions before they become serious.
Senior cat care doesn’t have to be stressful, and once you know what to expect, you and your cat can move toward the golden years together.Continue…
