How to be a responsible cat owner

Keeping cats inside

A single cat can kill up to 100 animals in a year, so it's really important to keep your cat inside. This will also protect your fur-friend from being hit by a car, chased by a dog, diseases or poisoned.

But your cat doesn't have to miss out on the outdoors or the things they love. You can train your cat to walk on a lead and provide lots of toys to play with. Make sure your cat has acccess to a scratching post to stretch and sharpen their claws.

Travelling with pets
