Cat Care Guide

Being the owner of a cat means responsibility.  Although cats are independent, they rely on their owners as much as any other animal does.  When you are sure you can give your cat the home they need and deserve the tips below will help you take good care of your cat:

    -  Provide your new cat with dry, warm and comfortable bedding.

    -  A Litter Tray should be placed in a quiet spot away from human traffic.  It should also be kept away from stored food.

    -  We recommend using a proper cat collar with ID tag.  Microchipping will help should your cat stray or get lost.

    -  Protect your cat from disease – Your vet can offer advice on appropriate steps to take.

    -  Neuter your cat to prevent unwanted kittens.

    -  Ensure your house provides your cat with plenty of space to move about.  Cats like their own space.

    -  It is well worth considering taking out pet insurance – To protect against unexpected veterinary bills and 3rd party liability.

    -  A balanced diet, such as Naturo natural cat food is essential for your cat to remain healthy.  Always have a supply of fresh water available.

    -  Grooming – Longhaired cats will need daily grooming, use a coarse metal comb and a soft brush. Shorthaired cats are less demanding and usually keep their coats in good condition by licking.

    -  Fur Balls – During the moulting season, cats can accumulate hair in their stomachs from licking.  Usually these hairs cause no problems, occasionally however they can cause constipation, which can be overcome by use of liquid paraffin.

    -  Claws – Cats usually keep their claws in good condition by using a scratching post.  If clipping is required be careful to only remove only the tip and not to cut the quick.

    -  Teeth – Teeth should be checked regularly for tarter build up.  If it becomes excessive your vet my recommend tooth scaling.  You can brush your cat’s teeth using a special pet toothpaste and brush. Begin this at an early age to get your cat used to it.

    -  Ears - Ears should be checked regularly.  Watch out for dark brown wax, it may be ear mites.  Most cats get ear mites at some stage in their lives.  Consult your vet about treatment. 

    -  Eyes – Injury to eyes are common and a number of diseases affect the eyes.  Any discharge or discomfort involving the eyes would necessitate a visit to your vet.
