As you venture out this spring, don't forget about your cat friends left indoors. Along with your spring cleaning, consider upgrading your cat's indoor environment.

We had that wrenching choice we dog lovers too often face: much pain and treatment for an iffy improvement versus a peaceful transition. We were blessed to have the kindest vet I’ve ever met help us with this at the New Ulm Regional Vet Center: Dr. Deb Kaehler. She was more than a vet: she was a spiritual guide and comfort to us.
