Fram & Sax Cat Care and News November 2017
01 November 2017
We were delighted to have recently been able to help reunite a cat, when he became lost, with his owner. The cat was found wandering in Leiston but actually lives in Rendlesham! It is thought he may have hopped into a vehicle. This story did have a happy ending, but had he been microchipped he could have been reunited so much quicker and with less anxiety. Having a microchip inserted by your vet is quick and painless and will ensure your precious feline companion is returned to you quickly if it has strayed. If your pet is already chipped, it is also important to remember to have the addresses details updated.

Cat care: Fireworks seem no longer to be confined to the night of 5 November and we would like you to spare a thought for your feline friend during noisy celebrations. The noise and flashing lights from fireworks can be distressing for pets. Follow these simple tips to keep your pet safe and sound: keep cats in after dark and provide them with a litter tray; make sure they feel secure in a settled familiar territory; ensure all doors and windows are securely closed and curtain are drawn; play soothing music; consider using a pheromone diffuser or spray (available from pet shops and vets).
Catology: As a cat lover you will have noticed that as soon as you start to read a newspaper or magazine, or put down a nice scrunchy paper bag your best feline friend will come and sit on it. There is a theory that the cat is deriving warmth from the paper. In reality it is more likely that your purry friend is just saying, 'Hey, I am the most important thing in your life; take notice of me.'
