The Indie cat is a descendant of the African Wildcat. Back in the day, they were raised to keep mice and other rodents at bay, especially in crop fields. Today, Indie cats are lovable members of different types of families and are known for their courage, intelligence, curiosity, and affection.

Indie cats are often adopted from shelters or streets and require a thorough medical check-up before leaving for their forever home. This is because certain underlying diseases that require special diets can be identified through bloodwork and physical examination at a veterinary clinic.

Indies are a hardy breed with little to no known health complications as long as they are fed nutritious meals, i.e. diets that are age-appropriate, wholesome, and balanced. More often than not, Indie cats find themselves eating food that is rich in carbohydrates with very little satiety value.

In such cases, these cats tend to put on unnecessary weight leading to obesity and its ugly consequences. Hence, it is best to draw up a diet chart for your Indie with a veterinarian. 

Indies are very easy to groom because of their short coat and affinity to spend a third of their day self-grooming. An Indie's grooming kit includes, but isn't limited to, a metal comb, a de-shedder, short-coat shampoo, ear cleaning solution, and toothpaste.

They require a tr-weekly brushing and de-shedding and a weekly ear cleaning and teeth brushing. Whilst this cat breed is generally clean; you might find it helpful to bathe them once every one or two months.

Indies require a good amount of exercise to keep them from boredom-based destructive behaviour such as scratching and yowling. They particularly enjoy the game of chase because of their high prey drive and prefer exercising through play, i.e. with toys that require them to use both mind and body.

In addition to this, cat trees and indoor agility courses also make for fun activities to let off some steam.
