Give your cat a hand with its grooming

Give your cat a hand with its grooming

You can often spot cat-owners when they pull a lint-roller matter-of-factly out of their backpack to run up and down their clothes, or perhaps when they arrive at work in a dark suit and immediately fasten a strip of tape around their hand and start dabbing at bits of fur on their pants. Shed fur is just a part of life when you live with a cat. However, there are things you can do to improve the situation somewhat.

A lot of basic grooming is taken care of by the cat itself, as it licks the fur to keep it shiny and clean and lying straight. But some cats could use help, even with that. If they shed a lot, the constant grooming can result in hairballs as they swallow massive amounts of fur. And sometimes they can't groom well enough to undo tangles, which lead to uncomfortable mats that just keep growing.

House cat care tips

House cat care tips
House cat care requires some basic understanding of what makes a good home for this feline companion. If you want your house cat around for years to come, the correct diet is essential. To stay happy and healthy, try a consistent feeding schedule. Avoid the pitfalls of unhealthy eating habits by feeding the appropriate food at regular intervals.

Avoid cow's milk when you feed your cat. Diarrhea is often the result of giving the cat cow's milk. The only fluid cats really need is fresh water. A cat's digestive system changes with age, so smaller and easily digested meals are strongly suggested. This change is likely to happen when the cat turns 7, so proteins that are easily broken down are recommended.

Whether it's moist pellets, tinned or dry food, you can meet the dietary needs of your cat in many ways. You can go for dry food or canned, depending on your preferences. If your cat has any dental problems, you probably want to stay with moist food.

Cat litter boxes: Is one choice better than another?

Cat litter boxes: Is one choice better than another?
Choices of cat litter boxes are numerous. Making a decision between them all is not easy to do. But, the primary consideration always has to be your individual pet.

If you already have a litter box, you do need to exercise caution in changing the style as cats can be very particular. However, if you are just getting a cat for the first time or are adding to your pet family, you can opt for something different. Also, if your cat is not using the litter box, it may be because he is not happy with the choice you made.

The main question you need to decide is hooded or unhooded. Many people prefer the hooded boxes. They hide the unsightly urine and feces and also end up with less litter outside the box. However, you need to take care that you are not using the hooded box to cut down on the smell. Litter boxes should be cleaned once or twice a day so there is no smell for either you or your pets.
