Like many of you, my pets mean the world to me. I try to do everything in my power to ensure they have a good life with healthy meals, routine visits to the vet, and a good amount of attention. I live in a rural area where people unfortunately tend to dump cats and kittens – we found our oldest when he was a kitten living in the hood of a truck, and my once-feral kitten Lily was abandoned by her mother on the back of our property. They’re now healthy and thriving cats who love attention and living in the house! They each have their own unique personality, and love playing with each other.
It’s no secret that cats get a bad rap, we often hear they’re too independent, aren’t lovable, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Renowned veterinarian, Dr. Jeff Werber (of Petcetera on Animal Planet and Lassie’s Pet Vet on PBS fame) joined me for an interview yesterday to dish on how to bond with your cat, what you should and shouldn’t feed them, the importance of keeping your cat(s) teeth clean, and healthy Iams food you should feed your cat. I mentioned to Dr. Jeff that Lily loves munching on flowers, and he dished on plants that are poisonous to pets, and much more.
Please listen to the interview below to hear celebrity veterinarian, Dr. Jeff Werber share amazing tips for cat owners around the world. For more information please visit Iams.com, especially during Pet Appreciation Week.
