Meow! Today I feel good. Dogs are the best friends of men, according to a study, so the cats have stopped being 'independent pet cool' to become the best friends of women.
|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.
The other day I was teaching a video in which a woman told why he thought he was single. It was a joke, but today I am telling you this is not: it is a study in the University of Vienna, and concluded that cats and women have a special bond, interact and understand each other
If a cat will do a favor (such as stroke when it comes to pampering ask), I returned. For example, when you want to cuddle by your side while watching TV. If that basically things are adorable!
Do you think your cat your best animal friend?
Cats and dogs healthy
It is very important to keep our pets healthy. To do this, we must take into account prevention, and go to the vet when something is as it should (when we notice a loss of appetite, lethargy and weight gain or drop by our furry).
|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.|
Obviously, the first step in that animals are healthy is to have all vaccinations up to date . Both dogs and cats have their own schedule of vaccination, the veterinarian will let you know when you have to put each dose, and what vaccines are needed. Also, if you intend to have your female offspring sterile Izal to avoid diseases (as pyometra)
Good nutrition, the foundation of all
Once the pet has all the shots made, the next step to be fully healthy is a varied and balanced diet and fresh water. The amount of food that we give will depend on the size, breed and sex of the animal and its level of activity.
We must avoid the feeding of scraps or feed that is not specific for that type of pet. If you have no problem with obesity (in dogs ideal weight depends on the breed, cats, an adult male should weigh approximately 5 kg, but also depends on the breed), the ideal is to leave the bowl of food for access to food when you feel the need. Both cats and dogs must be controlled carbohydrate intake and provide the ideal dose of essential fats, vitamins and proteins. In cats, the protein intake should be high, like that of taurine.
|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).|
