Healthy for Life

Dear JoAnne: 

I grew up without pets but I was always "adopting" my neighbors' cats and dogs, so I knew once got my own home, I would get a pet.  Last week I signed my first lease and adopted a beautiful tabby kitten. She's so fun and playful - I want her to stay that way!  How do I make sure she stays healthy for life?
