How often should kitties see the doctor?

In the veterinary world, it is well known that cats are under cared for and often go for years without receiving any basic health care. Kittens come in for their monthly checks and older patients are in more frequently, but a large concern arises with adult and mature adult cats. These patients “seem” well at home, and hence sometimes do not receive attention to their body condition (weight), diet, flea and heartworm prevention, teeth, and other systems. These are all things that can often go ignored at home, but they greatly influence longevity and quality of life.
