Cats are finicky creatures, and some prefer the indoors while others want the freedom to roam. When a pet owner decides to have an outdoor cat, it is important that he or she learn how to keep the cat healthy and safe—especially as the weather grows colder. Assisi Animal Health provides five tips on how to care for an outdoor cat during the autumn months.
Provide shelter from the elements. An outdoor enclosure will not only shelter your cat from the elements, it will also help protect him or her from potential predators. It can be free-standing or attached to your house, deck, or balcony. Have fresh water and food on hand in the shelter.
Collar and microchip your cat. Make sure your cat always has a collar on with an ID tag. A microchip is especially important in case your cat wanders too far from home. A veterinarian can check for the ID embedded in a cat's neck and scan it for your address.
Make sure vaccinations are up to date. Keeping vaccinations current will help protect your outdoor cat from infection and disease. Your vet can recommend which vaccinations provide the most beneficial protection.
Administer flea and tick protection. Outdoor cats are especially vulnerable to these parasites, so be vigilant in applying flea/tick medicine regularly.
Keep antifreeze out of reach. Cats (and all other pets) may find antifreeze tasty, but in fact it is deadly. It is important to keep the lid on the container closed tightly and stored out of any animal's reach.
