Everything You Need to  Know About Cat Care

Cats are great, but they are also a big responsibility. If you are preparing to bring one home, you must read this article. It will teach you the basics of cat care.  

Shop for Your Cat

You should purchase all of your cat care supplies before bringing your new pet home.
This shopping list will give you an idea of what to buy:

  • Food and water bowls
  • Food
  • Litter and litter box
  • Cat bed
  • Cat scratcher
  • Grooming supplies
  • Cat toys

Fresh Feed Your Kitty a Healthy Diet

A good diet will keep your feline healthy and strong. Picking out the best food that provides adequate nutrition requires research.
Read the ingredient list of every product you consider. Avoid brands that use by-products, preservatives, fillers, and other harmful ingredients.
Look for products that are grain free and contain mostly protein from chicken, turkey, beef, or another meat source.

Place Provide a Litter Box

When shopping for a litter box, you will notice there are different types available. You might have to try a few before you find the one your cat prefers.
You will also need to buy litter. There are a wide variety of options, but the best choice is a natural, non-toxic litter.  

Set Up a Place to Snooze

You might be tempted to let your puss sleep in your bed on the first night, but this could turn into an unbreakable habit. Do you really want to share your bed with your furry friend every night?
Rather than allowing your kitty to take over your sleeping space, get a cat bed. This hand-woven cat house is a great choice because it’s pet-safe, all-natural, and sustainable.    

Let Your Cat Scratch

You might not like it, but cats need to scratch. It’s a natural behavior that’s necessary for their well-being.
But don’t despair. You don’t have to let your cat tear up your furniture. Just buy a seagrass scratching mat for cats and train your fur baby to scratch that instead of your possessions.

Groom Your Kitty

The amount of grooming your cat requires will depend on your kitty’s coat. Long-haired cats need more grooming than short-haired cats. Some will even need to see a professional pet groomer.  
The types of brushes you buy will also depend on your cat’s coat. Some brushes are better for long-haired cats, while others are better for short-haired felines. Do your research to find out which brushes your particular cat needs.      

Play with Your Cat

Cats need exercise. You can get your cat to exercise by playing with your four-legged friend. Having the right toys on hand makes this task easy.    
Which toys are best? That depends on what your cat likes. Discovering your cat’s favorite toys will take some trial and error. But once you’ve found them your cat will love playing with you.

Now that you know the basics of cat care, you are ready to bring your fur ball home. Once your precious pet is home, the two of you can work on developing a strong bond that will add joy to both of your lives.
