Cats On Tuesday--Cat Health
Anela has been blessed with a healthy constitution for a cat, and even though she's getting up there in cat years, she's in good health. I attribute this to the fact that she's got a peaceful, loving home, and she's able to go outdoors and catch a gecko, mouse, or bird every now and then to supplement her processed cat food. Heaven help pets....who knows what's in that stuff! Yuk!
I read today in a health newsletter I subscribe to, the Douglass Report, that many pets are benefiting from vitamins given to them by their owners. So far, I've not given Anela any vitamins. Her vitamins come direction from her Nature--her 'catches'. But for house cats, vitamins have been shown to really help them as they age. Here's a snippet from the Douglas Report:
"The lesson here is that the right vitamins can be a boon to the health and quality of life for people and their pets. But if you're going to take them – or give them – be sure to get them fully "vetted" out by your doctor or vet."
Do you give your cats vitamin supplements?
The photo below is of Anela taking her morning sunbath, something she tells me which contributes to her health and why she doesn't need a Vitamin D supplement as she gets it direct from the Sun.
