Kitties are small, furry enigmas that all have their own purrsonalities and quirks. Fluffy isn’t hard to care for, but she isn’t quite as invincible as she thinks, either. Do you want to give your feline friend her best (nine) lives? A good diet, litterbox, and comfy shelter will cover her most basic needs, but there’s more to great cat care than that. Read on for the best cat care tips from Fairfield Animal Hospital, your Cypress, TX pet hospital.
Fluffy may enjoy romping around outside, but the list of dangers she faces far outweighs any benefits. Your furry pal can still be active and entertained indoors!
Your kitty would probably choose staying home and taking yet another nap over her appointments, but she’ll be much healthier—and therefore happier—with proper care. In addition to those regular appointments, you’ll need to bring Fluffy in right away if you spot any signs of illness or injury. Ask your vet for specific advice.
One thing that we can say for sure about cats? They’re all unique. Some kitties will ignore things like houseplants or that hair tie someone dropped on the floor. Others seem to be determined to rack up as many emergency room visits as possible. Err on the side of caution, and remove or secure anything that isn’t safe. Ask your vet for tips.
This one is kind of a no-brainer: no one likes a dirty bathroom! We’d advise scooping daily and replacing the litter every week or so. Make sure Fluffy’s powder room offers privacy and ease of access, and doesn’t have a waiting line. If you have more than one kitty, you’ll need more than one litterbox.
Our feline overlords have some very specific rules when it comes to interacting with them. First and foremost? Never force attention on Fluffy. You also should never punish your furball for misbehaving, even if she did just deliberately knock your glass of water onto your laptop or scratch up your brand-new chair.Keep That Motor GoingLove is the special ingredient in any good cat care regimen. Pay lots of attention to your feline buddy! Providing stimulation, entertainment, and enrichment, such as toys, furniture, and, of course, boxes, will all help keep your little buddy content.Does your cat need an exam?
