Cats are very curious. They are independent but love to love. It really can be confusing, but owning a loving cat is truly incredible. Here are some things you can do to make sure you’re caring properly for your cat.
Heated tiles are great to put under a cat bed, especially for the comfort of aging felines. Just get a tile and heat it up in the oven for a while to place under the cat’s bed. Keep the temperature of the oven at 200 degrees. Wrap this in a towel that’s old and then place it under the bed the cat sleeps on. Change every few hours if you like.
If your cat is a female, be sure to get her spayed when she is old enough. Even if she is an inside cat, you need to spay her because she could get out. Having your cat spayed is the only way to 100 percent prevent accidental litters.
Use bitter apple on your electric cords to keep your kitty away from them. If they like to chew on cords, try covering them as much as you can. Use paper towel or wrapping paper rolls to bundle up cords. Electronic items with thin, tempting cords should always be put away when not in use.
A cat’s claws can do significant damage to your home and belongings. Purchase a scratching post to stop your cat from destroying your home. They can scratch the post instead. It may take some time, but it should eventually work.
The litter box for your cat needs to be in a good location. The box should be out of the high traffic areas and a good distance from where your cat eats. Also, minimize the smell by making sure it is a well ventilated area. Both your cat and you will appreciate this.
Cats aren’t simple creatures, but they are great friends once you get to know them. Take what you’ve just learned to heart. A well cared for cat can be a true joy and can be the beginning of a great friendship.
