Top 3 All-Natural Ear Cleaner for Dogs and Cats

dog and catCleaning the ears of dogs and cats when they visit the vet’s office belonged sort of to the additional customer service we offered our clients back in Switzerland. Often – I admit – this work was done at the end of the visit by the vet’s helper – or by vet students like me. I was one of those students who couldn’t wait getting my hands dirty – so to speak.

Of course cats like to sit somewhere high up there in order to overlook things and actions. A behavior that comes from their natural stalking instinct. They also like to climb though, to jump, to stretch, roam, rub, scratch and play. And last but not least they like to take a nap.

Top 5 Adult Cat Dry Food around $20

cat dry foodThere is one important fact you need to know as cat owner about how to feed your cat. And that’s the fact that cats are carnivores. Therefore, when you choose dry cat food you need to keep this little fact in mind.
