EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – El Paso Animal Services said it is a good time to check your cat’s physical and mental health since February is National Cat Health Month.
Make an appointment with your cat’s vet – they will examine your pet. El Paso Animal Service said even if your cat is an indoor cat, your cat will still need an annual booster to keep him healthy and to protect him from deadly diseases.
Mental health is also important. Make sure your cats have plenty of toys and scratching posts to play with and use their natural instincts! Animal Services said it should stay interesting and give them different things to play with.
Follow El Paso Animal Services on Facebook for every Thursday they have a special guest who participates in virtual workshops where you can learn how to make toys for home enrichment.
For young cat lovers looking to help kittens at the shelter, the center is starting to welcome families back to the Kitty Reading Book Club.
The program enables children 9-13 years old and their parents or guardians to read and interact with cats awaiting adoption.
