What You Need To Know If You Have A Cat

Cats are usually hard to please. Their mysterious ways are often quite beguiling. But even if you don’t know how to make your cat happy, you can take excellent care of them if you know what you’re doing. This advice will assist you in giving your cat the care he or she requires.

Spay your cat as soon as she is old enough. While your cat may be an indoor one, there is always the possibility it can get out and you wind up with kittens one day. Having your cat spayed is the only way to 100 percent prevent accidental litters.

Don’t give a cat a dog’s product. Cats will have a reaction that’s negative towards a product made for dogs. This is especially true of flea products. These dog flea products can even cause feline death. Make sure to separate your cat from your dog after spraying.

Spray bitter apple on electrical cords. Cats who love to chew need to be kept away from cords. Hide those loose cords and keep them out of sight in no longer needed paper towel rolls. Any electrical cords that are really thin (and very tempting) should really be hidden whenever possible.

Think about getting a microchip for your feline friend. Even indoor cats can decide to run away at a moment’s notice, escaping through an open window. Even if you put a collar or tag on your cat, be careful as they can wiggle out of these very easily and can be dangerous if they get caught on a foreign object like a tree branch. Microchips are very small, and you can note your name, address and phone number in there. Almost every vet and shelter has a scanner these days, and they can retrieve your contact information should they find your pet.

These tips can help you ensure your cat is healthy. Use the advice to ensure your cat’s needs are met. If you do, you might see a positive change in your cat’s behavior. This is a possibility!
