Cat = big no no. Search for cat/feline saliva on here. They have a bacteria in their mouth/saliva and even the "grooming" will kill a flyer. So basically you have until October to figure out how to keep kitty away from flyer.

I have seven cats and there is something about a fast moving furball that just attracks those buggers to want to pounce on them. Flyers like their own territory and I keep my little ones in my bedroom with me with the door closed to seperate them from the cats. I occasionally allow one in if I'm going to be in the room to supervise and that is only when the flyers are put up and I know they are sleeping in their nestboxes. No cats allowed at all after 8pm. My sweetest of kittys becomes a predetor the moment one of the flyer's pokes a head out of the box. I worry about my declawed kittys too. Save yourself some heart pounding moments and heartache from tragedy and find a way to keep them seperate and practice being vigilant now. As in the previous post, just the syliva of you kitty can be fatal to you little flyer. Best of luck!

Pups have immature immune systems and can pick up things from other animals. Never put a flyer in a cage that had been occupied by another animal until you have cleaned it thoroughly with a 10% bleach solution. The only pups that I lost to illness were to a guy who put them in a previously used bird cage and both pups were dead within a week.

DANGER DANGER Will Robinson, DO NOT introduce them,your flyer will get the short end of that stick. :D Don't get me wrong you can own a flyer but keep that cat under lock when you have your flyer out, and the other way around. :cool:
