Flea and heartworm protection for indoor cats?
Some people have told me that my indoor cats don't need flea and heartworm protection, and some have told me that they still need it. I'm inclined to skip it since they're indoor only, at least for now. I'd really like to get one of the girls used to car rides, since she's so incredibly interested in what's going on outside, and maybe take her for walks, but if I do that I'm assuming she should get at least flea protection? These two are my first pets ever, adopted six months ago, so I'm totally uninformed about this part. If I should be using this stuff, is it pricey or relatively cheap? If it's expensive they'll stay exclusively inside, since I'm unemployed right now.
