unusual eating patterns, eye and nose discharge and general
The vet recommended rabies and
distemper shots, but she also suggested trying some
herbal remedies to fight off feline urinary tract infection my
cat mommy was dealing with.
So, my human friend, where shall
we begin exploring the vast mysteries of cat care?
