All cats carry certain obligations for the responsible pet owner. You don’t groom a cat the same way you would a dog or another type of pet. It takes a little extra attention to keep them looking their best. Read on to find more things cat owners should know.
If your cat is a female, you’ll want to spay her once she reaches the proper age. Even if she stays inside all the time, she could get out when in heat and end up pregnant. Your best bet is to have your female cat spayed.
Cats can have nocturnal tendencies. Because of this, night time is when they are most active. If your cat is keeping you up at night, you should close the door to your bedroom. This way, they can’t disturb you while you sleep.
Crystals form in urine from male cats. This can be prevented with good food choices. Your cat will experience considerable pain when he has to pass these crystals, and it’s not an easy (or cheap) problem for your veterinarian to fix. Let your cat have food that doesn’t have a lot of magnesium in it. This means you should pay attention to labels on food. Products including fish have a higher magnesium content then poultry based products.
Many times, cat meds can be purchased on the internet for less than they’d cost if you got them from your vet. Online prescriptions are not the best choice if you do not have the time to wait on a mail order, such as in a medical emergency. But, for routine medications, this can be a budget-saver.
Never try to teach a cat how to work a litter box. This is something that comes naturally and is not learned. A common misconception is to rub your cats paws into the kitty litter however this isn’t a good idea.
Good care will keep your cat happy and healthy. Do your best to make sure your cat is healthy and gets all the attention she needs. It is likely that your cat will appreciate the efforts you have made to provide good grooming. Follow this post, and spend time grooming your cat regularly.
