Did you know that red tide is a dangerous ocean/shoreline condition that can affect animals of all types and species? If you live near the ocean or you take your cat to the ocean for a beach day, check the beach conditions ahead of time for red tide warnings. If you are visiting the beach, avoid it when red tide is present. The algal blooms that are usually present in low quantities are at extreme levels causing toxic harm to marine life and other animals. Your cat should avoid being around the water and getting wet. If your cat gets wet by water affected by red tide wash her off immediately. She should not lick or groom herself after swimming in red tide waters. Red tide can also affect people and cats by causing respiratory problems. If you live near the ocean, keep your cat indoors during red tide outbreaks. Talk with your veterinarians Norwalk, CA to learn more.

If a stray cat approaches you stay still and allow him to walk around you. Don’t engage him unless he invites you to. A cat that hisses, snarls, or swats with his paw is not inviting you to approach. A cat that lies at your feet and is relaxed, meowing and purring may allow you to approach or bend down to pet him. When this occurs, see if the cat is wearing a collar for ID. If you can read the ID, contact the owners to inform them where the cat is. If the cat doesn’t have any collar or ID see if you can pick him up to transport him to the vet and have him scanned for an ID. If the cat doesn’t allow you to do this, notify animal control or local Saskatoon, Saskatchewan vet to inform them of the stray cat. Placing posters in the area can help reunite the cat and its owner. More details at this website Acadia Veterinary Clinic.
