    Collar/Harness Preferences?

    you shouldn't walk with a collar, it could damage the throat so use the harness for walks. If you want to keep a collar on them in the house get a break away cfollar, so if they get caught on something they won't strangle themselves.

    My foster kitten has worms and I don’t know what to do.
