Important Tips for Taking Care of Your Cat

Wouldn't be nice if you could communicate with your cat and they could tell you whether they are happy or need anything?

Unfortunately our cats can't talk to let us know how they are feeling but we can take simple steps to ensure that they are happy and healthy.

Here are a few important tips that will help keep your feline friend purring and taken care of:


PROVIDE A SAFE AND CLEAN LIVING ENVIRONMENT FOR YOUR CAT. 
Your feline should have their own clean, dry and comfortable place that they feel comfortable and safe!


ALWAYS HAVE FRESH WATER AVAILABLE. 
Maintaining optimal hydration is important for your cat's health. You will need to provide fresh, clean water at all times and wash and refill your cat's water bowls daily.


MAINTAIN A QUALITY DIET FOR YOUR CAT TO PREVENT OBESITY.
There are many different food types and brands available for your cat but it is important to remember to follow the dietary recommendations on the food bags or that your veterinarian makes. The nutritional needs of your kitty are all based on size, age and how much they are active.


TAKE YOUR CAT ON ANNUAL VET TRIPS.
Your veterinarian will provide you with the information on vaccination schedules and how often you need to bring your cat to the vet based on age and health concerns. Be sure to keep a copy of your cat’s vaccination records in your home and with you when you take your pet to travel. It is important to have these documents on hand if anything goes wrong while on vacation or at home. Contact your veterinarian if you believe that your cat may be ill, injured, or if something just doesn’t seem right.


KEEP YOUR CAT PROPERLY GROOMED.
You might see you kitty constantly cleaning themselves and taking "baths" but its important that you brush and comb your cat regularly to keep your cat's coat clean!


KEEP YOUR CAT'S LITTER BOX IN TIP TOP SHAPE
Cats are neat freaks and they want their living space and most importantly, their litter box nice and clean. Your cat cares about litter box maintenance and won't use their box if there is too much odor coming from it. To avoid your litter box messes and to keep your cat's litter box in tip-top shape use Every Cat Litter Spray!


HAVE SCRATCHERS AVAILABLE FOR YOUR KITTY
Your cat's need to scratch is a natural instinct. When a cat scratches, the old outer nail sheath is pulled off and the sharp, smooth claws underneath are exposed. Providing your cat with a scratching post (horizontal or vertical) will keep them happy and purring!
