Cats are cute and cuddly. Did you know they are fastidious creatures where bath and toilet are concerned? Unlike dogs, which require constant cajoling, cats prefer to be left alone. In fact, they are very solitary creatures. Let`s get to know more about cats to help handle them better.
Cats purr happily when inside the house. They are fussy and prefer a separate space for themselves in the house. A cosy one at that! Hygienically too, it is safer to keep your feline at home. This will help protect him/her from infectious diseases. Feline leukaemia and rabies are dreaded diseases that spread with external contact.
Cats require good and healthy food. Just a bowl of milk won`t do. In fact, many cats do have lactose intolerance. Steamed vegetables or readily available cat food is sufficient. Another essential requisite is water. Cats love to drink water. Twice or thrice a day, you may have to replenish the water bowl.
Cleanliness is the keyword in cat maintenance. Cats detest an unclean litter box. In case no proper place has been allocated for litter, they may go about easing themselves in a clean corner in the house.
This fetish for cleanliness extends to brushing and cleaning the cat`s fur as well. It is better to clean the fur often. The fur can cause digestion problems or vomiting if proper care is not taken.
Cats love to be trained. In fact, some vets do advice owners to train their cats. Cats that are made to run a lot stay healthy.
Playtime is happy hour for cats. Chasing a ball or a plastic ring can engage a cat for hours. Never use any kind of thread or sharp object for training. It can injure your cat.
Last, but not the least, regular visits to the vet is mandatory. Regular application of health care methods like vaccinations and a healthy diet can make cats live long.
Your feline is a neat nick. Your cat can lead a healthy life with these simple suggestions.
