Your cat’s coat should be silky and soft. There should no signs of fleas or bald spots.
Your cat’s eyes should be bright, clear, and free of discharge. If you can see the third eye-lid, seek veterinarian care since this is sign that your cat is sick.
Your cat’s nose should feel damp and velvety-soft to the touch. The nostrils should not be crusty or have discharge. If your cat is continually sneezing it may have a respiratory virus. Seek veterinarian care.
Your cat’s ears should be a healthy pink color inside and there should be no discharge or wax buildup. Gently clean the ears once a week.
