Poets and songwriters have often spoken of the importance of a cat in a home. Eliot thought that cats were a core component of the household. A cat is often a valuable member of the family, especially if it is healthy and happy. Sometimes, cats are very difficult to live with. Here’s some great tips to help you get along better with your cat.
Local rescue organizations are a great place to look for a new pet cat. Shelters have a lot of cats in them and you can get one adopted for a small fee. By adopting a cat from your local shelter, you will preserve a life and will do your part in controlling the cat population.
Make sure your cat is always well groomed. A cat’s fur must be brushed or combed on a regular basis. Doing it constantly can help you keep their coats clean. This will also cut down on shedding and can reduce issues with hairballs. Cat grooming will not only keep kitty looking great, but it will also help to reduce the effort spent picking up cat hair around the home.
If your cat is an outdoor cat, then you should ensure it wears a tag collar. Cats can travel a long way and this will help you get them back easier if they’re lost. The tag should contain your name and number for contact purposes.
Keeping your cats away from the counters can be hard. Cats have a natural predilection for staking out a nice elevated place where they have a good view of their surroundings. Making a place high-up for your cat can solve this issue. Sometimes strategically placing a tall cat tower near your kitchen will help.
Be sure you think about your cat’s ears when traveling. You may be tempted to blast your favorite songs at top volume. Cats, on the other hand, would probably prefer that you didn’t. Keep your music off, and talk to your cat instead.
Cats enjoy heights. For a happy cat, make sure you establish a safe environment for them to scan their surroundings. If a cat tower is not ideal, a simple shelf that does not have any breakable items can work. You can even lay down a blanket to give your kitty some comfort.
Caring for your cat is a lot of work but your cat is worth it. Whether your cat is a lazy ball of fur or an active ball of hair, it needs proper care. You’ll have your cat purring in no time.
