Popular poet T.S. He said households depend on cats, which is sort of true. A cat that is friendly and happy boosts any family. Sadly, cats can be temperamental. Here are some tips on how you and your pet can better co-exist.
To help your aging cat feel cozy, place a warmed tile under his bed. You should heat a terra cotta tile with your oven, at about 200 degrees, for around fifteen minutes. You should wrap it with a towel and place it under the bed your cat uses. Change it frequently if you like.
Ensure that your cat goes to the vet often so that they are healthy. Your cat should always go to the vet for a check up, especially if they need shots. If there are obvious issues with your cat, it needs to see the vet immediately. Don’t wait!
Most cats are very nocturnal. Because of this, night time is when they are most active. Keep your bedroom door shut if your cats make too much noise at night. This can keep them from waking you up at night and from pouncing on feet under the blankets.
The cat’s litter box should be placed in the right spot. The litter box should not be kept in an area with a lot of traffic. In addition, it does not need to be near the cat’s food. Choose an area that is well-ventilated to avoid bad smells. Your kitty will thank you.
Avoid the chance that your male cat will develop crystals in his system that will come out in his urine by feeding a high quality diet. Passing such crystals is a painful experience for your cat, and your wallet isn’t going to enjoy the vet bill. Food with a low magnesium content will help. Check the ingredients list on the label. Fish-based foods usually contain more magnesium than poultry-based foods.
It isn’t always easy being a cat owner, but it’s definitely rewarding. You need to get to know your cat better so you can focus on the kind of attention it needs the most. Soon, you’ll be hearing less meows and more purrs.
