There is a lot that goes in­to own­ing a cat. Do not ex­pect groom­ing a cat to be like groom­ing a dog. There is a lit­tle ex­tra work in­volved with keep­ing them look­ing good and clean. Many oth­er tips like this one lie be­low, so read on.

Your cat will want to climb in­to small spaces. If you keep a col­lar on your pet, get­ting stuck in one of these spaces can be very dan­ger­ous. A break­away style col­lar will lit­er­al­ly “break away” if pulled too tight. Your cat can pre­serve a few of his nine lives with this.

Male fe­lines tend to get crys­tals in the urine that can be pre­vent­ed with prop­er di­et. Pass­ing these crys­tals is painful and the vet bill to have this cor­rect­ed is ex­pen­sive. Choose a low mag­ne­sium food. Al­ways read la­bels. Fish prod­ucts tend to be high­er in mag­ne­sium than poul­try prod­ucts.

Check prices on­line for your cat’s med­ica­tion to see if they are cheap­er than at your vet’s of­fice. In an emer­gency, how­ev­er, this might not be pos­si­ble. But, if you’re hav­ing to buy pet med­ica­tion reg­u­lar­ly, you will be able to save up to half the price if you buy on­line.

Set a table­cloth un­der your cat’s food bowl. Cats will some­times pluck food from the bowl and en­joy it straight off the ground. Some­times this will make the area around the bowl messy, and you’ll have to clean it. To make clean up a breeze, use a place mat un­der­neath the bowl or a piece of fab­ric. You’ll be able to pick it up eas­i­ly and shake the ex­cess food in­to the trash.

Take care if you leave a kit­ten with young­sters. Chil­dren un­der five years of age should not be left alone with a kit­ten. Lit­tle chil­dren do not have the nec­es­sary skills yet to han­dle a pet by them­selves. As they grow, you will be able to de­cide when it is the right time for them to han­dle a cat or kit­ten with­out su­per­vi­sion.

Don’t try and teach your kit­ty how the lit­ter box is sup­posed to be used. Cats in­stinc­tive­ly un­der­stand what to do and teach­ing is not re­quired. Don’t force your cat in­to the box or you will trau­ma­tize them.

Let your cat get com­fort­able us­ing a car­ri­er. Cats nev­er re­spond to pun­ish­ment the way that dogs do. They are much bet­ter with en­cour­age­ment. Put a fa­vorite blan­ket and toy in the car­ri­er and leave it open some­where the cat fre­quents. The cat will even­tu­al­ly get in­to it and feel com­fy. Once the cat is com­fort­able with the car­ri­er, you can trans­port it eas­i­ly.

Don’t throw away your cat’s old scratch­ing post. Cats tend to en­joy a scratch­ing toy more af­ter they’ve got­ten com­fort­able with it and made it their own. By re­mov­ing the old item and re­plac­ing it with a new one, your cat may try to find an­oth­er item to scratch. This could end up be­ing fur­ni­ture.

If your cat sud­den­ly stops us­ing the lit­ter box, you should take him to the vet. This be­hav­ior may be in­dica­tive of an in­fec­tion of the uri­nary tract or some oth­er is­sue. In many cas­es, cheap an­tibi­otics will re­solve the prob­lem and keep your cat healthy.

Don’t bring home a cat with long hair with­out tak­ing in­to ac­count the ex­tra care they’ll re­quire. That hair will tru­ly get every­where! Un­less you have time to ded­i­cate to clean­ing up their fur, don’t get long haired cats. They can al­so have more health is­sues due to hair­balls.

Help your cat live a longer life by keep­ing them healthy and keep­ing them cur­rent with check-ups and vac­ci­na­tions. A kit­ten is not so dif­fer­ent from a child. It needs prop­er­ly-sched­uled check-ups and im­mu­niza­tions to pre­vent med­ical com­pli­ca­tions down the road. Your cat is a mem­ber of your fam­i­ly, so treat them like any val­ued mem­ber of your home.

A clean cat is a hap­py cat. Re­mem­ber that groom­ing is es­sen­tial in or­der to keep your cat healthy — and hap­py, too! Your cat will be hap­py when it is prop­er­ly cared for. Use the ideas with­in this ar­ti­cle to help you cat stay beau­ti­ful but al­so safe and hap­py.
