If Cats hide their illnesses very well, how can you be sure they are healthy?
I'm in the same boat, I have a lot of cats to take care of and I try my best to stay on top of their needs, but sometimes my own illnesses have gotten in the way of staying current with my cats. In addition, it can be emotional taking them to the vet, and even though I know some cats really get sick and throw up on that drive to the vet, most do pretty well. So its no excuse for me.
If you don't really like taking your cat to the vet you could always consider giving an in-home vet a call. There are many veterinarians that will go to the home you just have to call around or google them in your area.
Also, if you would like to have a feline friendly practice where they will understand you and your cats needs then choosing a cat clinic may be the best place.
When you go to the vet, make sure to cover your cats carrier and to keep it off the floor and away from dogs. I always put the carrier facing me on my lap.
