Not that long ago it was thought that cats were one of the “easy”, low maintenance pets you could have. Give them some food, water and a litter box and they can pretty much take care of themselves. For the most part we keep them indoors so they don’t need to go to the vet. They are small so keeping them in an apartment is fine and there is no need to exercise or play with them. Wow were we wrong. We’ve been doing our feline family members a disservice.
