Prevention of accidents is very important, and the correct care for your cat can prevent it from getting hurt or becoming ill. On this course, we discuss different things you need to think about when you get a cat or kitten. This course is aimed to go alongside our pet first aid course to look at caring for your cat rather than dealing with an emergency.

We discuss choosing a cat or kitten and look at the pedigree cat side so that when you choose, you know what questions to ask. We also cover the care you give once you have a cat or kitten.

We also have added many videos from our vet on different subjects in the care of pets.
