How To Take Care Of Your Cat In The Best Ways

Cats have often been mentioned in fiction and poetry. T.S. Eliot, the famed poet, once likened cats to creatures that a household depends on, the there is some truth behind his words. A cat who is healthy and behaves well can be a great companion, and he can be an asset to any home. Unfortunately, some cats do not fit this “perfect” mold. Here are some things you need to know if you’re going to be living with a cat.

Make sure your cat is always well groomed. Cats should have regular combings. This will keep your cat’s coat clean. It’s also helpful in reducing how much cats shed and how often they spit out those dreaded hairballs. Regularly grooming keeps cats looking well and keeps your home neater.

Your furnishings and belongings can easily be ruined by a cat’s claws. If you have problems with a cat that shreds furniture, invest in a durable scratching post. Teach your cat to scratch this instead of the legs of a couch or sofa. This approach takes time, but it usually works.

It is a good idea to microchip your cat. Even cats that live their lives entirely indoors can suddenly escape out a window or door. A collar and identification tags can help bring your pet back to you. But experts point out that collars that do not snap apart quickly if your cat gets it caught on a branch or even a bush can accidentally strangle your cat. A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and can hold all of your contact information. Nearly all veterinarians and shelters now have scanners capable of reading the information on these chips, and since they are under the skin, there is no chance of the chip getting lost.

Although owning a cat isn’t an easy process, the rewards are great. It doesn’t matter if your cat is energetic or totally lazy. These tips will strengthen your bond with your cat. With any luck, you will hear more purrs and less meows.
