Simple Tips To Help You Understand Cats

Like people, cats need proper nutrition. Without the right nutrition, cats can get sick. Read the piece that follows to understand the proper diet for cats.

Use short words when you want to express displeasure with your cat. A short 'no' will be remembered, even if not always followed. A lot of people think that cats don't listen to anything, but short word commands are certainly understood by cats, and they will respond to those commands if you are consistent with them.

While cats can be finicky, you should not encourage this behavior. A cat will eat the exact same cat food their whole life if it is tasty and nutritious. You do not need to mix up the flavors. Doing this can encourage the cat to skip certain foods they previously ate and wait for another.

Most veterinarians recommend that you feed your cat food that is in the can as opposed to the dry varieties in the box or bag. This is because the canned food contains more water, fat and protein than the dry variety. It is also easier to consume for cats with dental issues.

Microchips are an increasingly popular form of pet protection. Indoor cats could run out your door or jump out the window. Even if you put a gps collar or tag on your cat, be careful as they can wiggle out of these very easily and can be dangerous if they get caught on a foreign object like a tree branch. A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and can hold all of your contact information. These days, pretty much all shelters and vet offices have scanners that can read these chips, and because they're beneath your pet's skin, they won't ever get lost.

Be careful if you leave a kitten with a young child. Particularly if the children are younger than five, they need supervision. They aren't mature enough in order to handle the potential dangers of a kitten. Wait until your child gets older, and pay close attention to whether or not they're mature enough to hold or handle a tiny pet.

If you notice that your cat is not using the litter box as much as usual, you should go and take them to a vet right away. There are several health problems that can cause the cat to stop using the box. These issues include bladder problems, constipation and diarrhea.

If your cat is bitten by another cat, try to get him to the vet within 24 hours. The vet can put him on antibiotics that will protect him from infection setting in, and causing serious health problems. Cat bites can trap bacteria under your cat's skin, forming an abscess, or other dangerous infection that can cost you hundreds of dollars to treat later.

Cats have a natural instinct to hunt small prey. This can sometimes be a problem if you have other small animals in your home. Make sure that bird cages are hanging from the ceiling. If you have a gerbil or hamster, make sure their cages are secure and up high out of your cats reach.

The way to take good care of your cat is to groom them often. Use a brush to remove any excess hair. Cats usually enjoy being brushed and will come running to you when they see the brush in your hand. Keep their nails trimmed so they do not grow back and injure their paws.

Cats need to drink water frequently to avoid dehydration. You can tell if your cat is dehydrated if his eyes seem sunken in, his mouth seems dry or he seems less active than usual. Be sure he has plenty of fresh, clean water. You can also try running a gentle stream from the sink or hose for cats who prefer running water to drink. If he still seems dehydrated, seek the advice of your vet, who will know what to do.

If you have more than one cat, it is a good idea for you to give them each their own food bowls. Place them far apart so that each cat has their space. If you provide just one bowl for the cats to share, it may cause larger cats to bully the smaller ones.

It is unwise to acquire a cat on impulse, such as for a Christmas or birthday gift. In the initial excitement of getting a new pet, people often forget to think about the commitment that owning a cat involves. Before purchasing a cat, be sure you know how to care for it, feed it properly, and be sure you are ready to commit to keeping it for its entire life.

Keep an eye on your cat when it's the holiday season and you have a Christmas tree up. Cats can become curious and climb the tree, causing problems for both your cat and your family. In addition to preventing the cat from climbing, keep looser decorations like tinsel away from you cat. They may be tempted to eat it.

For a healthier, happier cat choose plain litter over scented litter. Cats like nice, clean, clumping cat litter. Scoop your cats litter box daily and change it completely every three days or so. When you change the box, wash it out with water and dish soap. Don't waste your money on liners as cats tend to destroy them.

Get your cat all the necessary vaccinations. There are a number of them and you should talk to your veterinarian about the proper schedule. Many are given at the early stages of a kitten's development, then given annually thereafter. These vaccinations prevent such problems as feline leukemia, rabies and respiratory problems.

If your cat is diabetic, check his blood sugar at least once a day. Having a record of his blood sugars can provide you with helpful information to pass on to your vet. Your vet can then adjust insulin and other medications accordingly. This can also help you to determine how food is effecting your cat's health condition.

If your cat goes outdoors a lot, the chances are good that they come home filthy once in a while. When your cat is especially dirty or smelling like a skunk, you should make an appointment with the local groomer. Groomers will be gentle with your cat, resulting in a less traumatic experience.

As you can see now, it's not terribly difficult to care for a cat. You just have to be patient and everything will fall into place for you. Take the things that you have learned here and you'll be well equipped to deal with cats. Enjoy your feline friends and good luck!

Brief description: Caring For Your Cat Has Never Been Easier. Follow These Tips Today! A cat can be a great pet. After all, they don't need to be walked, dislike baths and seem to take care of themselves. However, there are some things you need to do for them, even though they may not think so. Here are some kitty tips that you can follow to give your cat a great life. Help keep your cat's fur soft and healthy with regular cleaning.

These are especially useful if you have an older or injured pet that cannot groom itself properly. Even though no two cats are the same, certain breeds are known to possess unique characteristics. For example, bengals and other exotic breeds are notoriously active, especially at night. They have high energy levels and are less cuddly than other domestic cats. Bring home a bengal if you love a unique look and are willing to actively engage your pet. Do not give your cat any products that were made to get rid of fleas or worms if you know that she is pregnant. While you want to get rid of these pests once and for all, it is not worth placing your cat's health in any type of jeopardy.

Scratching posts can also deter your cat from scratching your furniture. Or, build a small cat house out of cardboard.

A mature cat requires care as well, but should fare well when you aren't at home. When leaving your home for days at a time, the idea of leaving your cat alone may cause anxiety for both of you. Getting a cat boarded may cost you a lot, and it's hard to get someone to take care of it that you can trust. This will be easier if you call your vet to get a recommendation.
