There is a lot that goes into owning a cat. Cats require different grooming techniques than dogs. It takes a little extra attention to keep them looking their best. Read on to find more things cat owners should know.

Keep your cat properly groomed. A cat requires regularly brushing and combing. This leads to a cleaner cat. It’s also helpful in reducing how much cats shed and how often they spit out those dreaded hairballs. Cat grooming will not only keep kitty looking great, but it will also help to reduce the effort spent picking up cat hair around the home.

Make sure your cat is regularly visiting the vet for checkups. Your vet can give you an idea of your cat’s overall health, in addition to administering any shots it may need. When you find a vet you like, stick with them. This is because this person will know your cat and the history of the animal.

Set up a nice, warm and comfortable area for your cat to rest in your home. It should be lined with a warm towel or blanket. Make sure to wash the bedding regularly since it can acquire dust, dander, and anything from outside if your cat is an outdoor cat.

Your cat might not come running when you call, but most cats enjoy cuddling on their terms and time. Cats love to have their heads and backs pet. Not all cats like their tummies rubbed so be careful. Spending quality time with your cat will make lasting memories to look back on someday.

For a healthier, happier cat choose plain litter over scented litter. Cats like nice, clean, clumping cat litter. Scoop your cats litter box daily and change it completely every three days or so. When you change the box, wash it out with water and dish soap. Don’t waste your money on liners as cats tend to destroy them.

Spraying the electrical cords in your home with a bitter apple solution helps keep the cats from chewing on them. If this does not work, make sure you cover the cords. Any loose cords should be bundled up and placed in things like paper towel rolls. Whenever you aren’t using any thin, electronic cords, you should store them away.

Enticing kitty to stay off the kitchen counter is sometimes challenging. Cats have a natural predilection for staking out a nice elevated place where they have a good view of their surroundings. You can remedy this by creating some place up high that you can can enjoy hanging out in. Placing a cat tower by the kitchen can keep cats from getting on counters.

Refrain from giving your cat any food that is spoiled. This can lead to indigestion and food poisoning, which can cost you a trip to the veterinarian. Always buy your food fresh from the store and be sure to check the expiration date before you feed it to your cat.

Cats can really be so much more than pets, they can be lifelong companions. It has been proven that cats can decrease your blood pressure, lessen the symptoms of depression and help you to live a longer happier life. If you feel like something is missing in your life, you might just need a cat.

Most cats are prone to wax build up and ear mites. You can purchase a solution at the pet store that will clean out your cats ears. You put a couple drops in each of your cats ears and then hold them closed while massaging them for a minute. When you let go, stand back or you will get covered in the liquid when your cat shakes its head.

Entertain your cat with simple “toys” made from household objects. Many cats enjoy exploring boxes, such as those that hold 12-packs, small appliances, or other products. Before allowing your pet to play with a box, you should be sure that the animal cannot get stuck in small openings or tight spaces. This would be dangerous and very frightening to your pet!

Cats have an uncanny ability to always find their way home. If you move to a new home, keep your cat inside for about a month. This will help your cat to familiarize themselves with the smells of your new place. If you let your cat out too soon, they might go home to the wrong house.

When a dog wags its tail, the reason is because it is happy for some reason. A cat wagging its tail can have a very different meaning. Tail wagging in a cat usually means he is thinking of attacking or running away. If while being held by you your cat’s tail begins to wag, you may want to put him down so that you are not scratched or hit.

Clean your cat’s litter box. Cats will use litter boxes on instinct if they know where to find it. Let your cat go naturally and don’t manually force it to go by putting it in the box or pushing it to scratch the litter. Keep the box in a private place, scoop its contents on a daily basis and give it a periodic wash.

Switch up cat food flavors. Cats can be notoriously picky eaters. This can be frustrating if a flavor is out of stock or, worse, discontinued. Don’t let your cat get into the habit of eating one food and only one food. Make sure there’s some healthy variety in your cat’s diet.

Whenever your cat has been properly groomed, it will look incredible. It is up to you to take the necessary steps so your cat looks happy and healthy. Any time you spend improving the health and happiness of your cat will make you a hero. Read here about how to be successful in keeping your cat groomed in a healthy, productive way.
