Parasites
Cats may suffer from parasites (tiny living things that live on other creatures). These will show up as breaks in the cat's skin or discharge in the ear. Treatment is available from your vet.

Teeth Care
If your cat has bad breath and difficulty eating, it may need to have its teeth scraped by a vet. You should brush your cats teeth once a week, can be easier said than done but it will keep your cat healthy.

Digestive Disorders
Cats often eat grass to make themselves sick, if they have a minor digestive disorder or if they need to bring up a hair ball. This is nothing to worry about, unless the vomiting is persistent or the cat shows any other symptoms.

Ringworm
The fungal disease ringworm can be passed to other cats and to people, but the characteristic breaks in the cat's skin cannot always be seen. If you suspect that your cat has ringworm, seek veterinary advice immediately.
