Cats are high maintenance animals. Not only do you have to cater to their whims and desires, but you also have to spend all your money keeping them healthy as well. One problem with cats is keeping them free from ticks and fleas.

Ticks are parasites that attach to an animal’s skin to feed on their blood. Besides attacking cats, ticks can also bite humans and spread diseases. Be careful removing a tick since if you don’t pull it out completely, part of it could stay embedded in your cat and causes an infection.
