They say that dog is man’s best friend but cats sure do the silliest and craziest things. These furry companions are always up to something unexpected and their charismatics can put quite a smile on your face. Cats are also very cozy to snuggle with and these four-legged friends are always ready to spin away your worries with their soothing purr.
While it is important to mind your own health, it is even more important to pay attention to your pet’s health. They cannot talk to tell you whenever they feel ill or sore and it is up to you to look for symptoms so you can spot illnesses early on and to take great care of your companion so he or she can enjoy great health at all times.
Here are the best tips for keeping your cat as healthy and happy as can be.
Invest In an Automatic Cat Feeder
One of the easiest ways to keep your kitty cat nourished when you are at work is with an automatic cat feeder. But you shouldn’t just choose any feeder. An automatic cat feeder for wet food is the best possible investment because these feeders keep those sensitive foods fresh and enable you to schedule meals at specific times, and as frequently as you need. You can feed your cat delicious snacks three or even six times a day and their food will stay clean, and free and perfectly fresh all day long.
Get a Cat Waterer
Your cat needs to have access to lots of fresh water, especially if he or she lives outside of the house during the day. Get an automatic cat waterer and remember to never place your cat’s water next to his food. Cat’s just don’t like it and tend to get dehydrated which eventually result in kidney failure.
Just How Often Should Your Cat Bath?
The National Cat Groomers of America recommends that cats get a good bath every 4 – 6 weeks. They also have some recommendations for the best way to bath your cat so he or she doesn’t stress. You should also use cat-friendly soaps because cats absorb a lot of elements through their skin.
Build a Playpen
Cat playpens are very important for quite a few reasons. These climbing spaces give your cat lots of exercises and keep him or her busy. With sufficient climbing and play space, your cat will keep off your furniture. The right type of playpen offers plenty of scratching space where your furry friend can calm himself and keep those nails nice and short.
Alternate Cat Toys
Cats are very playful and they love cat toys. Get a few cats play toys and alternate these toys every day so your cat will always have something exciting to do.
You Can Get Health Insurance for Your Cat
Pet health insurance is available in a wide range of US states and is a good investment considering the number of times even healthy cats need to visit the vet.
