Cats, just like all kinds of pets, require care from a responsible owner. That said, it isn’t like grooming a cat. You need to brush them, but not bathe them often. Consider this article when it is time to groom your feline friend.
Put a collar on any cats which go outside. Cats can range far from your home and the tag will help them find their way home. The tag should contain your phone number as well as your cat’s name.
It’s important that you don’t forget your cat and allow them to become bored too easily. Cats need stimulation. Unfortunately there are too many cat owners who don’t properly exercise their cats. Bored cats can become depressed and inactive, causing harm to their well-being. Provide your cats with the toys and space it needs. If they are indoors, give them a scratching post or something to climb on.
Your cat needs lots of affection and love. They want the same level of companionship that they give to you as their owner. Similar to people, cats like to socialize and feel as if they are important to their family. They wish to be a happy and valuable family member.
Look online for cat medicine. There may be some cases in which you cannot buy online, such as in an emergency. It is possible to save up to 50% on certain medications by purchasing them online.
Reconsider outside time for your cat. This could be harmful and unsafe. Fleas can infest your cat, or something worse can happen. Your cat could be injured by other animals, people and vehicles. If you think your pet needs to go outside, think about enclosing a back patio with metal mesh or some type of heavy screen to keep your cat inside, yet allow them to experience the outdoors.
You cat should get cat food that is of a good quality. Always look at the ingredients first. You want to see either fish, chicken or beef noted. Any foods with non-protein sources, such as corn, should be avoided. Cats are carnivores, and they need a good amount of protein in their diet.
You should give your cat at least three weeks to grow used to the presence of a new animal. They may fight with each other initially. Over time, though, they will learn to tolerate each other and eventually form a close bond.
With dogs, tail wagging is a sign they’re in a good mood, or glad their owners are around. When a cat wags its tail, it means something very different. Tail-wagging in cats tends to suggest conflict or anxiety. Along the same line, if your cat wags its tail while you are holding it, you should put it down to avoid getting scratched.
A well groomed cat will look and feel wonderful. It is your responsibility to make sure your cat looks (and actually is!) healthy. The cat will love any grooming you do. Take the advice given in this article to keep your cat looking healthy and well-groomed.
