Cats and humans have lived together for centuries. Cats have been the focus or muse for poetry, music and even cinema. Cats think that they are independent and in charge at all times. In this article, you’ll find some advice that will help you properly raise your cat.
Remove the drape cords from visibility when a cat is in the house. Cats love to play with hanging cords and this poses the threat of your cat hurting themselves or becoming entangled. This could cause injury or death. Make sure that the cords are completely out of sight. Heated tiles are great to put under a cat bed, especially for the comfort of aging felines. A terra cotta tile heated in your oven on about 200 degrees and for 15 minutes will do. Use an old towel to wrap around it, then place it beneath the cat’s blanket or bed. If necessary, change this out every few hours.
When your female cat is old enough, you should have her spayed. Even if she is an inside cat, you need to spay her because she could get out. Getting your cat spayed is a great way to stop this from going on. Be sure you have a vet that your cat sees regularly so it stays healthy. They should go at least once yearly for a check-up, and more often if they need any shots. If your cat has any health issues or injuries, you should try and have them seen right away.
You should never allow your cat to be bored all the time. Play and exercise are both important for cats’ well-being. But, too many cat owners fail to realize this. A bored cat runs the risk of developing depression and obsessive compulsive disorders that may harm them or something in your home. Give them toys they can play with, play with them yourself, or at the least give them room to exercise. If they’re inside kitties, get them a post or something else that they can scratch and climb.
Normally cats are nocturnal animals. The result is that they active while you’re sleeping. If you have trouble sleeping because of cats, you may want to close the door to your bedroom. This should help them from waking you during the night, pouncing on your feet under the covers. Sometimes, cats may think they know it all. However, it is possible to get a cat to realize that it is actually you who is in charge. Cats are great pets and can bring joy to your life if you follow these tips.
