Take Time To Talk & Play With Your Cat

green-eyed-white-cat-casperliciousSome people decide to get a cat because they want a pet and they think that cats are less work than dogs. I’m here to assure you that caring for cats is not as easy as some people think. Cat lovers know that a healthy, happy cat can take a lot of hard work. It may not require as much physical labor as caring for a dog, but it will take time and dedication on your part. Cat care is enjoyable and rewarding, so it is worth the effort. Following these 7 cat care tips will put your cat on the road to being the best that they can be.

Talk to Your Cat

Cats may not understand us and we may not understand them, but talking to your cat is important. They respond best to a high-pitched soft voice, similar to baby-talk. Often times, my cats “talk” back when I speak to them. Talk to your cat often enough and you will start to learn the subtle differences in their meowed responses to you.

Feed Your Cat Regularly

Feed your cat on a regular schedule unless you leave food out for them at all times. Make sure you always have fresh water available for your cat and clean your cat’s water dish often.

Play with Your Cat

Cats like to play. Have toys and scratching posts for them to use and play with them as often as you can. Cats are often entertained by simple household items, such as paper bags, boxes and ping pong balls. My cats have taken to stealing my hair binders if I leave them lying around. You need not spend lavishly for fancy store bought toys to make your cat happy.

Clean the Kitty Litter Often

It is important to clean your kitty litter often, preferably daily. You should also wash the litter box with water and soap on occasion. Cats prefer clean litter boxes and will sometimes become angry and unhappy if their litter box is unsanitary.

Don’t Give Your Cat a Bath Too Often

Cats like to be clean; they bathe themselves often. They don’t need a bath unless they got themselves into a substance that is not safe for them to lick off or if their fur is beginning to feel dirty. Giving your cat a bath too often can damage the natural oils that protect their fur.

Take Your Cat for Regular Check-Ups

Make sure your cat stays up to date on its vaccinations. Checking in with the veterinarian on a regular basis is as important as a yearly physical is for you.

Be Patient and Loving

It is important to be loving and patient with your cat. Cats can be very sensitive animals and will respond to your treatment of them. If you are patient and loving, your cat will be calmer and happier. If you are impatient and angry, your cat is more likely to act out aggressively.
