Have you ever looked at your cat and thought, “Boy, I’d like to have that life!  Sleeping all day with the other cats, nothing to do, food always available, somebody else to clean the toilet… what a great deal!”  But we’ve actually asked our indoor domestic cats to live a very different lifestyle from what their natural instincts tell them.

Rabies can be a serious problem for you and your pet if you let your pet’s rabies vaccination go past the expiration date. If your pet’s rabies vaccination has expired and your pet comes in contact with a wild animal, the law states that your pet must either be quarantined for 6 months in approved facility (you are not allowed to visit) or your pet must be euthanized. This is the law. Please read this important article on rabies and never let your pet’s protection from rabies lapse. Keep vaccinations current!
