Understanding Cats And Their Cat-Like Behavior
Cats are an integral part of any household. T.S. Eliot once called cats a crucial element to a home, and this statement rings true today. A happy, well-behaved feline is a great addition to any home. Sadly, cats can be difficult to live with sometimes. These tips will help you live comfortably with your cat.
Cats really enjoy squeezing into any and all small spaces. They can get caught or stuck if they happen to be wearing a collar. Purchase breakaway collars that will give if they are yanked tightly. A collar like this could save your cat’s life.
If your cat is older or sick, a heating pad may provide comfort. Put a square foot of terra cotta tile into your oven heated to 200 degrees. Keep the tile in the oven for about 15 minutes. Put it inside a cloth and place underneath your feline’s blanket or bed. Change it regularly if you need to.
It is not safe to use dog products for your feline friend. Cats often have negative reactions to dog products. Flea products are a prime example. Canine flea products can be lethal to a cat. Keep your cat away from your puppy after treating it with some flea products.
Your home furnishings can fall victim to your cat’s sharp claws. If your beloved feline friend is shredding and damaging parts of your home, try investing in a cat tower or a scratching post. When your cat scratches inappropriately, redirect him to the scratching post. This approach takes time, but it usually works.
Owning a cat is not something that can be simple, but it is rewarding. Whether a cat jumps all over the house or sleeps all day, these tips can better your bond with them. Those meows will be replaced with purrs in short order.
