5 Tips in Cat Care

  • Spay/neuter Your Cat – Spaying or neutering prevents them from diseases and infections. Plus, it discourages them from roaming outside to relieve themselves or marking territories.
  • Socialize with Your Cat  – Socializing with a new cat can seem counterintuitive: let them come to you. However, this allows them to build trust and be more comfortable. If you have had a cat for a few months to a few years already, always play with them to relieve their energy and stress.
  • Litter Boxes – Practice good hygiene in your cat by cleaning out their litter box everyday. Not doing so makes them relieve themselves elsewhere, especially if there is an infection.
  • Invest in a Scratching Post – Save your own furniture by investing in a scratching for the new kitty. A scratching post helps with their scratching urges and keeps them exercised. 
  • Have a Good Cat Veterinarian – Since having a new cat, you will need a local cat veterinarian nearby for cat care such as: checkups, vaccines, and hygiene.
