BOBCAT FEVER ON THE RISE, DEADLY TO CATS

Bobcat Fever is on the rise in Tennessee and is deadly for cats. The disease is transmitted by ticks that bite a bobcat and then the tick goes on to bite a domestic cat. The disease is not a danger to humans or dogs.

The best way to prevent this disease from afflicting your cat is to keep them indoors. While flea and tick treatments might help, they do not provide a guarantee.

    Please keep your cats safe from wildlife. You’ll also be keeping local smaller wildlife safe from cats which is not a bad thing. And make sure cats are up to date on their rabies shots (even if they’re indoors only – you just never know).
