Cats make great pets, but caring for them can be costly. Vet bills, toys, cat litter and food add up. These tip can help you keep your cats and save some money while you care for them.
Groom your cat. Cats require frequent brushing or combing. This will keep your cat’s coat clean. It also reduces their shedding and hairballs. A cat that is well-groomed is one that looks the best at home.
You shouldn’t ever use products designed to be used on dogs on your cat. Cats can have strong negative reactions to a product that is formulated for a dog. This definitely applies to flea products. Flea products meant for dogs can seriously harm or kill a cat. Once you use flea prevention products on your dog, it should be kept separately from the cat for hours.
It can be hard to stop your cat from coming on your counters. If your cat is high, he can see everything that is going on. One way to nip this problem in the bud is to give your cat a dedicated perch of their own as an alternative to using your space. Placing a cat tower near the kitchen will help the cats to not lay on the counter.
You may be able to find a better deal on your cat’s prescription online instead of purchasing them from your veterinarian. In emergency situations, buying online may not be a good option. However, if your pet gets regular prescriptions for a chronic or ongoing issue, you can often save up to 50 percent by shopping online.
Any pet can cost a lot to properly care for, and that is also true of cats. Caring for cat is almost like having a child, considering what needs to be done to take care of them. You should apply the tips you just read, and do your best to be a responsible cat owner.
