The poet T.S Eliot He said that cats were designed in a way that a home depends on them, and that is a true statement in a way. A cat that is friendly and happy boosts any family. However, cats can at times be difficult to have around. Here’s some great tips to help you get along better with your cat.
Make sure you don’t allow your cat to be around drape cords. Cats can potentially strangle themselves on these cords so it is important to protect your cat from this potential danger. This may hurt them or possibly cause death. Keep your drape cords pinned out of sight to prevent this.
Ensure that you groom your cat regularly and properly. You can regularly brush or comb your cat. This leads to a cleaner cat. Having a clean fur coat helps reduce the amount of hairballs that get spit up around the house. Keeping your cat nicely groomed will keep him and your home looking their best.
When your female cat is old enough, it’s vital to get her spayed. Whether or not she typically goes outside, she may escape while in heat and you might have kittens! If you want to prevent this, spay your cat.
Male cats may develop crystals in the urine, which usually occur as a result of a poor diet. Passing crystals is very painful for your cat, and the vet’s bill will be painful for you. Choose a cat food with low magnesium content. Just as in the grocery store, take the time to read the labels. Fish is often high in magnesium compared to chicken.
Caring for your cat is a lot of work but your cat is worth it. Whether a cat jumps all over the house or sleeps all day, these tips can better your bond with them. In no time you’ll notice more purring and less meowing.
