You've Come To The Right Place To Learn About Cats

A lot of people think that cats are not as affectionate as
dogs, but that is simply not true. Your cat can be a wonderful friend
to you, and any cat owner knows that. You just need to know how to properly care for this wonderful animal.
Here are some effective ways to care for your cat.

If you suspect that your cat is pregnant, make an appointment with the vet as soon as you can to make sure
that is really the case. There are a few serious illnesses that can mimic pregnancy, so you want to make sure that none of
these has affected your cat.

When it comes to cat litter, you should scoop out all of the waste on a daily basis.
Cats will not use a litter box that is overflowing with waste,
and they will start looking for somewhere else to
use the bathroom. Change the entire box at least once every few weeks.

Use your cat to teach your children responsibilities.

A pet demands care that the whole family can participate in. Each child can take different day to feed the cat, for instance.
Same thing for litterbox care. You can make a schedule and post it on the refrigerator.

Then, everyone knows what they are responsible for.

If you are having a holiday party with lots of guests, make sure to ask your guests to leave their small dogs at home.
Lots of noise can make a cat feel uncomfortable,
but their discomfort will be increased dramatically
once they notice that there is a dog inside the home.

Just as important as it is to take care of your own teeth, you need to take care of your cats as well.
Cats can develop tarter and plaque build-up over time.
Purchasing a toothbrush and toothpaste made specially for felines is a great way to keep your cats teeth clean and

Having a hard time giving your cat a bath?
Try this. Take an old window screen and put it in your sink or bathtub.
Put your cat in, and he will claw the screen and stay there.
Then start washing, but do don't dilly dally.
Use a cup to help you to pour warm water on your cat unless you have a movable shower head.

If you wish to add another cat to your home, give it a couple weeks for your
old cat and your new cat to grow accustomed to each other. They
may seem like they're fighting all the time. However, if you allow them to slowly get used to each other, they
will eventually become friends.

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.

Cats love to much on grass and plants such as catnip.
There are plants however that are poisonous to cats.
Chrysanthemums and holly are beautiful and common around the Holidays, but
can be very toxic to cats. Other plants that are toxic or lethal include
lilies, rhubarb and daffodils.

To help prevent tapeworm infestation in cats, feed a small amount of food grade diatomaceous earth for two weeks
out of each month. About a quarter of a teaspoon per cat per
day is adequate. Food grade diatomaceous earth kills internal parasites
and causes them to be expelled from the system.

If you want to have your cat for many years, it is a good idea to keep
them indoors. While a cat may enjoy going outside, it is statistically proven that outdoor
cats live shorter lives than indoor cats. There are dangers to a
cat that spends time outside, not least of all other animals.

Cats can really be so much more than pets, they can be lifelong companions.

It has been proven that cats can decrease your blood pressure, lessen the symptoms of depression and help you to live a longer happier
life. If you feel like something is missing in your life, you might just need a cat.

Although cats do not usually need to be bathed,
if your cat does need a bath, set a small towel on the side
of your sink or tub to give your cat something to make him feel secure.

Not being able to get a foothold on slippery surfaces
can panic your cat and make the bath more difficult.

Set up a nice, warm and comfortable area for your cat to rest in your home.
It should be lined with a warm towel or blanket.

Make sure to wash the bedding regularly since it can acquire dust, dander, and anything from outside if
your cat is an outdoor cat.

When your female cat is old enough, it's vital to get her
spayed. While your cat may be an indoor one, there is always the
possibility it can get out and you wind up with kittens one day.
If your cat has been spayed, however, you won't
have to worry about this happening.

Inspect your home for holes that could possibly be dangerous for your cat.
Cats can squeeze into very tight spaces. Kittens are even smaller!

Make sure you know where all the holes in your house to help protect the kitten before it comes home.
When you find a hole that may be dangerous, make the necessary repairs
right away.

Use care if you have kids and a cat. Under five, the child needs to be watched.
Younger children cannot fully understand how to properly handle
a small pet. When your children age, you will realize when they're able to deal with a
pet monitor.

Caring for a cat can take some time and patience, as cats will typically express pleasure and displeasure about the way things are going.
However, the information here can help you to care for your cat in an effective way
that keeps you both happy. Your friendship can last for years to come.
