    Proper Cat Care-Basic Feline Care

    Proper Cat Care-Basic Feline Care

    Although they are more independent creatures than dogs, cats still need your love and attention. A happy cat
    needs at a minimum: food, water, litter box, health care, scratching posts, and playtime. Here's how to provide
    for your happy cat:
    Where to get a
    cat
    Thousands of cats and kittens are turned into shelters throughout the year, and are readily
    available for adoption. Cat clubs put on shows where the public can meet breeders and get
    acquainted with different breeds. Independent rescue groups also offer cats for adoption.
    Indoor or
    Outdoor?
    Decide whether your cat will be indoors all the time, or a mixture of indoors/outdoors. A cat
    outdoors does not live very long, especially in rural areas where cats are preyed upon by
    coyotes. Even in the city, an outdoor cat runs the risk of being hit by cars and other perils. To
    ensure a long healthy life, plan to keep your cat indoors.
    Cats that disappear may be in a shelter. Less than 10% of stray cats are redeemed by their
    owners. A microchip is the best insurance that you will get your wandering kitty back. Your
    vet implants the chip between the cat's shoulder blades, and you register the number with a
    national registry, the microchip company or local animal control. A collar and id tag, or license
    if it is required in your area, means anyone who finds your cat will know how to locate you.
    Feeding Cats do nicely on a diet of a high quality dry, complete cat food. All major brands of cat food
    are tested according to AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) standards.
    Extensive analysis of foods has been done to ensure your cat gets the correct balance of
    nutrients for his needs. You can also treat your cats to a little canned food in addition to the
    dry. If left out, it dries up and the cat won't eat it, so small amounts are best in a separate
    dish.
    Cats need fresh water. Change water daily!
    Cats love to nibble on fresh greens. If they are indoors-only cats, that means your
    houseplants! Provide Kitty with some live Pet Grass (PETCO offers Care Sheets regarding
    this topic)
    Litter box The one important thing you can do to keep your cat happy is to take extra care with his litter
    box. Cats need a routine, and sometimes react to any changes by refusing to use their box.
    Place the litter box where your cat is not likely to be disturbed while using it. Scoop every day.
    A dirty box is the number one cause of cats refusing to use the litter box. Don't put it near his
    food because cats are very clean and don't want to eliminate where they eat. If your cat isn't
    using his box, there may be many reasons. (PETCO offers Care Sheets regarding this topic)

    Just like canines, felines need there shots as well. Alot of the time people get there canines there shots but not there felines. It is just as important to get your feline their shots as well. I cannot stress that enough. Feline leukemia is the most leading cause of death for our feline friends. Especially if you have a feline that goes outside the shot is a must. A regular check-up every year is the best for your feline. cat cat cat

    You are so right crabby-girl!!

    If an indoor cat gets outside it can pickup all kinds of stuff..especially if it comes in contact with another cat that is infected with something!

    Nice post!!
