If your cat is a female, you’ll want to spay her once she reaches the proper age. You may not think it’s necessary if you have an indoor cat, but your cat may escape. If your cat has been spayed, however, you won’t have to worry about this happening.
Deter your cat from chewing on inappropriate things by using bitter apple. If they like to chew on cords, try covering them as much as you can. If you have loose electrical cords, you can bundle them up and stow them away in a cardboard tube (think toilet paper or paper towel rolls). Store electronics when they are not in use rather than leaving them plugged in.
Most cats tend towards nocturnal behavior. This means that they will usually be quite active at night. One way to deal with a kitten’s playful activity at night is just to shut your door. This will ensure you sleep much better, without cats jumping into bed with you.
When it comes to litter boxes, placement is everything. The box should be out of the high traffic areas and a good distance from where your cat eats. To help control odors place the litter box in a well ventilated area. Your cat will certainly appreciate your efforts, and you will too!
Male cats sometimes have crystals in their urine, but this can be prevented with the right cat food. These crystals can cause a lot of pain to your cat and could end up costing you a lot in medical expenses. Feed your cat food that is low in magnesium. Read the labels. Products including fish have a higher magnesium content then poultry based products.
Cats, like many other pets, are susceptible to different parasites. Parasites will remain with your cat until taken care of. You can eliminate them and prevent their return if you use these recommended methods. By staying educated, you can have a wonderful cat.
