|General Cat Care #1: Before You Bring Your Cat Home|
|You will need food, food dish, water bowl, interactive toys, brush, comb, safety cat collar, scratching post, litter and litter box.|
|General Cat Care #2: Feeding|
|An adult cat should be fed one large or two smaller meals each day. Kittens from 6 to 12 weeks need to be fed four times a day. Kittens from three to six months need to be fed three times a day. You can either feed specific meals, throwing away any leftover canned food after 30 minutes or free-feed dry food (keeping food out all the time).|
Feed your cat a high-quality, brand-name kitten or cat food (avoid generic brands) two to three times a day. Kittens can be fed human baby food for a short time if they won’t eat kitten food softened by soaking in warm water. Use turkey or chicken baby food made for children six months and older. Gradually mix with cat food. Cow’s milk is not necessary and can cause diarrhea in kittens and cats. Provide fresh, clean water at all times. Wash and refill water bowls daily.
If ever there has been a simple solution to a daily problem, this is it. I usually stand with a wet cloth every morning to remove the cat hairs that have collected on my hubbies coat but not anymore. I am so happy to have these and they work like a charm. It is a little alarming the amount of cat hairs that manage to get on the carpets, furniture and our clothing. Even with wiping, dusting and vacuuming they still land up on things.
These lint removers are perfect for lint, dust, hairs (both human and animal) and generally get pieces of fluff and even crumbs removed from everywhere.
|General Cat Care #3: Grooming|
|Most cats stay relatively clean and rarely need a bath, but they do need to be brushed or combed. Frequent brushing helps keep your cat’s coat clean, reduces the amount of shedding and cuts down on the incidence of hairballs|
|General Cat Care #4: Handling|
|To pick up your cat, place one hand behind the front legs and another under the hindquarters. Lift gently. Never pick up a cat by the scruff of the neck (behind the ears) or by the front legs without supporting the rear end.|
|General Cat Care #5: Housing|
|Cats should have a clean, dry place of their own in the house. Line your cat’s bed with a soft, warm blanket or towel. Be sure to wash the bedding often. Please keep your cat indoors. If your companion animal is allowed outside, he can contract diseases, get ticks or parasites, become lost or get hit by a car, hurt in a fight or poisoned. Also, cats prey on wildlife.|
While testing these out I tried them on the carpet that I just vacuumed and it lifted up some cat hairs. It is perfect for using inside rucksacks and even shoes. There is a generous amount of tape on each holder and it works like a charm. You just peel of the corner and then the sticky bit is visable. You just run it along the area you want to “catch” hairs and it sticks to the surface. You can then peel off those dirty pieces, through them away and the fresh sticky part is revealed again. Just repeat until you have achieved what you want. The handle is easy to grip and is made of plastic. The roll resembles a toilet roll and it fits onto the handle. It has 54 layers (I didn't count but it seemed to last for ages).
I received 2 rolls on handles and 4 refills. I am keen to try them out on the car as these would be a great way of cleaning the car seats and boot.
I have used them under the cushion seats in the lounge and they were very effective there too. It is best to make sure you clean the area with a brush to the best of your ability first then go over it with the roller afterwards to collect the hairs.
Although I used to use sticky lint rollers all the time years ago, I somehow over the years seem to have forgotten about them and their usefulness. I am pleased that the seller kindly offered them to me to review, they are one of those things you wondered how you have done without them but I know now I will be using them all the time.
|General Cat Care #6: Identification|
|If allowed outdoors (again, we caution against it!), your cat needs to wear a safety collar and an ID tag. A safety collar with an elastic panel will allow your cat to break loose if the collar gets caught on something. An ID tag or an implanted microchip can help insure that your cat is returned if he or she becomes lost.|
|General Cat Care #7: Litter Box|
|All indoor cats need a litter box, which should be placed in a quiet, accessible location. A bathroom or utility room is a good place for your cat’s box. In a multi-level home, one box per floor is recommended. Avoid moving the box unless absolutely necessary. Then do so slowly, a few inches a day. Cats won’t use a messy, SMELLY litter box. Scoop solids out of the box at least once a day. Dump everything, wash with a mild detergent (don’t use ammonia) and refill at least once a week, less frequently if using clumping litter. Don’t use deodorants or scents in the litter or litter box (especially avoid lemon scent).|
