Love Your Pets: Cat Care Tips And Tricks
Cats are amazing pets. If your life is busy, this can work to your advantage. Use what you will learn here to make sure your cat has a enjoyable and healthy life.
Make sure you keep all the recommended appointments with your cat’s veterinarian. In addition to checking the health of your cat, a vet can give him any needed shots. If you can, stick with one vet for your cat’s entire life. This helps make sure your vet knows your cat’s history.
Cats will try to get into many different crevices. If they are wearing a collar this can pose a safety risk, in the event that your cat gets stuck. Therefore, use a breakaway collar that will come undone whenever it’s being pulled very tightly. A collar like this could save your cat’s life.
If your cat is older or sick, a heating pad may provide comfort. A terra cotta tile heated in your oven on about 200 degrees and for 15 minutes will do. Wrap this in a towel that’s old and then place it under the bed the cat sleeps on. Change it regularly if you need to.
Dog products shouldn’t be used on cats. Cats are not the same as dogs, and products meant for dogs can make cats very ill. Flea products especially. Your cat can die if you use a dog flea product on it. Keep your cat away from your puppy after treating it with some flea products.
A cat’s claws can cause lots of damage to your home. If your cat is ripping up and shredding your home, invest in a kitty tower or scratching post. Put cat nip on it to attract them to it. It doesn’t happen overnight but with some patience, you should be able to save your house from the claws.
Cats make great companion animals because they are smart, cuddly and curious. When you’re well educated, your cat will be happy. Use the above tips to become a great cat owner. This way, you and kitty will enjoy a very special bond.
