Hi, everybody :cwds: My nephew (now 12 with D) is about to adopt a kitten. His mom is concerned re. hygiene. The cat will of course take the necessary vaccinations, parasite pills etc. by the vet. yet, my sister is still concerned there might be microbe/etc. infections or something even though there will be regular bathing for the cat. she believes taking into consideration the fact that health care in our corner of the world (Iran) is not nearly as good as that of the west, any "cat-caused problems" for Ali, would impose much more stress and time/money/energy to be spent on the problem. should we be concerned!? Do a lot of you guys have cats at home?! Anything we should know?
