Halloween is all about fun and playing around. It is the time when you can spend some quality time with your family and loved ones. This is when the entire surrounding is in the festive mood and when people of all age group will be in their scariest look. When everything will be full of enthusiasm, then, why should the felines be deprived of all the fun?
|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.
Don't just keep your kitty locked up in a room. Dress her in the cat costume and treat her with special cat food. Involve her in the celebration and her to have as much fun as you are having. The article has compiled the various ways through which you can get your feline ready for the day.
1.The lion cat look
This is one of the most 'in' thing for the day. Cats and tigers belong to the same family. Hence, they can easily pull out this look. You can find the cat lion hat at the online store of meowingtons.com, this alone can give a perfect Halloween look to the feline. Make your pet the leader of all it's counterpart. The king of the jungle will look even more cute if your kitty is yellow in color.
|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.|
The batman look is the best one for the black felines. Attach the wings of the batman at the back of the kitty and a black bow tie in the front. Leave the rest to the fierce looks of your cat. No matter how cute she is, she will definitely scare each and everyone around.
The Dinosaur cat costume available at meowingtons.com is another good option. This apparel will keep the kitty warm as well as make her ready for the event. This costume is complete in itself and you need not do anything else. Your feline is gonna be the most attractive personality at the party.
4.Witch and wizards
Some of the felines don't like wearing clothes as it restricts their movement. In this case, you can go for the look of wizard or witch. Just put a long wizard hat on the head of the feline. This will perfectly match the requirement of the day. You can even tie a black robe with the cat collar. This will be easy for her to carry and will add to the wizardry charm.
The place on this day is going to be crowded with guests. So, keep your feline indoors. No matter how careful you are, there's a chance that your feline companion may slip out of the door. Hence, make sure that you tie a cat collar bow tie in her neck and attach an identification tag with it. This will differentiate her from the stray cats. Make sure that the clothes that you buy for the pet are lightweight and cozy. Don't make her wear the costume for a long period of 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).|
