“My cat is a superhero. He is a perfect weight; he never gets sick, he is immune to everything. Why on earth would he need vaccines or an annual cat health check? He never goes outside like the other cat. He is such a sweetheart he even snuggles with the dog.”
It is amazing how often we hear these things from cat owners, right up until their cat shows up with a serious illness. They swear that one day kitty was in perfect health and the next he could barely move or catch his breath. It was like overnight their cat loss 3 pounds and two teeth, and they never saw it coming.
