I've always assumed that I shouldn't let my cat play in the grass because he will get fleas. He's an indoor de-clawed (regrettably) kitty with longish fur, and it pains me that I've forced him to remain indoors for the most part. With Spring upon us, it would just be a joy to let him play in the grass, but I want to be wise concerning his health. Are there vaccinations or anything that allow cats to enjoy the outdoors? Is there any way I can prevent him from catching fleas? He's had them before, and they were a pain. I think he may have caught them simply by hanging out on the deck with us, but I can't be sure. He's never really had the joy of being able to run around in the grass. Am I dreaming, is Arthur dreaming, or is there some way to make this reality without too much consequence. What do you think?
