A cat will usually be very stubborn at times. From the time they sashay into your home, they can be a mystery. You need a little knowledge to understand them better. Here are some tips to make sure your feline friend gets the care he needs.
If you have an outside cat, you need to give it a collar and some identification tags. Cats can get lost, and they need a tag to be found. Be sure that the pet’s name and also your home number are on the tag.
Spray bitter apple on electrical cords. If that doesn’t work, cover those cords up however you can. You can bundle loose cords together and place them inside paper towel rolls. The cords on electronics should be hidden as well.
Think about getting a microchip for your feline friend. Indoor cats can slip out an open door. Collars and tags can help get your cat home, however cats are experts at wiggling out of these, not to mention the risk they pose if they were to get snagged on a bush or tree branch. Microchips are as tiny as a piece of rice and will tell people where the cat belongs. Most organizations that deal with animal care can scan your cat for microchips, and because they are implanted, they won’t get lost.
Cats are known for spending inordinate amounts of time grooming themselves. When your cat has long hair, this can cause hairballs. One way to alleviate this condition in your cat is by feeding him special food. Some cat foods are specially formulated to help reduce hairballs, which is good for both you and your pet.
Even if you’re not able to make your cat happy, you can still be a great cat owner with these tips. Apply this advice to properly care for your cat. Perhaps your cat will then decide to warm up to you. Could be!
