He is 100% indoor cat. I know it is a belief that brown recluse are only in southern state but, that is completly false. If you look into it you will see that more people in the state of MI have been bitten than in any other state. I worked at A Cosmetic surgery clinic and a lady came in with a horrible bite on her hand she lived in Rochester Hills. She had a huge crater in her finger where it had bitten her and her hand swelled up to 5 times the normal size. It was awful. Check around you will find that brown recluse spiders are more common to MI than you have read.
Please, please do NOT give your kitty Metacam!!! It is not approved for use in cats and is known to cause renal failure in some cats. Google it and find out everything you can before you use it with your kitty!!! If you've already given it to your kitty, make sure you get his renal function checked ASAP!!!
Here is a link that discusses the risks of Metacam use in cats http://www.persiancats.org/nss-folde...isksInCats.pdf
