Cats are very loving and intelligent creatures. Cats love new cat toys and fun little games, so think about them when you are out shopping. That doesn’t mean shelling out for expensive toys, either. Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to better days.
Check out the shelter when adopting a cat. Shelters have a lot of cats in them and you can get one adopted for a small fee. You’re literally saving their life.
You should always bring your cat to a vet to make sure everything is okay. They should get their vaccinations and have a full check up. For the most consistent pet care, choose one veterinarian and stick with them. This person will be more knowledgeable on your cat’s history.
Be sure you have a vet that your cat sees regularly so it stays healthy. A yearly visit for a regular check-up is important, with more frequent visits for shots as required. Cats should visit the vet right away if they are having any issues.
Your cat’s claws can wreck havoc on your furniture. Buy a scratching post if you need to protect the furniture in your home. Put cat nip on it to attract them to it. They may not take to it overnight, but they should eventually.
Do not allow your cat to stay bored all of the time. Cats need stimulation. A lot of cat owners do not keep their cats busy. Bored cats are more prone to depression, obsessive compulsive disorders, as well as many other behavioral issues. Give them plenty of space to roam and provide them with toys to give them some exercise. If your cats are kept inside, set up a carpet lined scratching pad or post. There are many climbing structures that can be purchased or made for cats who enjoy heights.
You should use these tips to care for your cat and remember that your pet needs a lot of attention. Not all cats are the same, but these tips should work on yours. Help your cat enjoy a long, healthy life with these tips.
