How To Take Care Of A Cat

Cats, like many other pets, require regular grooming. You don’t groom a cat the same way you would a dog or another type of pet. You must provide extra attention and take care to avoid certain things in order to groom them properly. Read on to find more things cat owners should know.

Shop at your local pet shelter for your next cat. Shelters usually have many cats who need a home, and the fees typically include their shots and spaying or neutering. When you bring home a shelter cat, you will be saving its life and you will be doing your part to help out.

Make sure your cat is always groomed. Regular combing and brushing is usually all that is required. If you do this frequently you’ll be able to help the cat have clean fur. It helps your cats shed much less too, which keeps them from spitting those hairballs up. A well-groomed feline looks great on their own, but also helps keep a home well-groomed too.

Make sure you purchase medicines and treatments specifically for cats. Cats can have strong negative reactions to a product that is formulated for a dog. This warning applies to products for getting rid of fleas. Dog products that are flea related can kill a cat. In truth, your cat needs to be kept a distance from any dog just flea-treated for the first few hours.

Deter cats from shocking themselves on electrical wires by spraying them with bitter apple. If that doesn’t work, cover those cords up however you can. You can do this by bundling them and tucking them in the cardboard rolls that are used for paper towels. All thin cords should be put up when you’re not using them.

Grooming is the main factor in making your cat look great. It is your responsibility to make sure your cat looks (and actually is!) healthy. Any grooming efforts you take will be appreciated by your cat. Use the tips shared here for grooming and making your cat happy.
