Cat care

Cats are mysterious creatures, and just like people they have individual quirks, needs, and likes/dislikes. 4 Paws provides basic cat care information to help you better understand feline behavior and provide the best possible care for your cat. Please use this information to supplement advice from your veterinarian or a cat behaviorist. If you notice any change in your cat’s behavior, always consult with your veterinarian first to rule out a physical ailment as the reason for the change.

For information about resolving common behavior issues, see our behavior correction resources. If you have any questions, please call us at (623) 876-8778 or (623) 773-2246 or send us an email.

The resources listed within this section are available to assist pet owners and animal caregivers.
