Cats are not just cute and sweet, but they also help to keep nuisance mice away! But owning a soft and heartwarming cat extends beyond basic knowledge, you have to equip yourself with the right information and possess the right skills to take good care of your cats and kittens. Cats are independent but not quite capable of taking care of themselves, so before adopting, you need to make sure that your lifestyle matches your feline. It is still possible to adopt a feline if you are too busy at work but still wanting a friendly face to meet you every time you come home, just ensure that you also adopt a buddy for your cat to prevent boredom and have a fellow cat to play with.
Remember to give your adopted feline immunization and have it neutered as soon as her age permits because it makes a huge difference between a happy and healthy cat, and a miserable cat spraying your upholstered furniture or trying to claw its way through your windows. Invest in a good quality litter box that offers your lovely feline more privacy, and remember that clumping litter is easier to maintain. It is important to provide your cat the right food by talking to your vet about the balanced diet and age-appropriate food for your feline. Another fact about cats is that they really like to play a lot, and you can feed their amusement and entertainment needs by providing playthings such as toy mice, strings, empty boxes, and feathers. You know how cats love to scratch, so if you don’t want your upholstered sofa or throw pillows shredded, or your new Hermes bag ruined, better invest in a feline scratching post. The best cat bribery and cat training tools are catnip and little freeze-dried chicken nuggets. Once you bring your adopted feline at home, make sure that she’ll get used to bathing, brushing trimming claws, and other grooming activities so you don’t have to dread with these routine care activities as your cat gets older.
Fleas infestation is a common problem of cats, that is why you need to know the important tips to help reduce or completely control these pests. In warm humid areas, most especially in high-density living, fleas are a common problem, and it is frustrating using flea products and finding out that your cats still have fleas. Fleas start feeding on your cat’s blood and a female flea can lay up to fifty eggs per day, so it is no wonder why flea infestation is so rampant as they rapidly grow in number. It is important to seek a vet’s advice about the best product to use for controlling fleas, flea eggs, and flea larvae, such as Frontline Plus and PetAction Plus, that can also control ticks and chewing lice to ensure that your cat gets the right dose and flea treatment.
