Cats have been a longtime human companion. They’ve been the subject of poems, movies, and even Broadway musicals. It shouldn’t be surprising then why cats feel like they are the ones running the show! The following article will show you how to best care for your feline friend.
Make Your Pet Comfortable
If you want a cat to feel like it’s more comfortable, a heated tile may be able to help. Bake a one-foot tile made from terra cotta in the oven at 200 degrees F for around 15 to 20 minutes. You should wrap it with a towel and place it under the bed your cat uses. Change it out every few hours if you feel the need.
If your cat ventures outdoors, it’s key to get your cat a collar which has a contact tag. Cats enjoy traveling far away, so a tag can help your cat get back home when lost. Be sure the name of your cat and your number can be found on the tag.
Microchips are an increasingly popular form of pet protection. Even a house cat may end up lost outside, no matter how careful you are. Tags and collars can help you cat return home, but cats can wiggle out of them or risk injury by snagging them on a tree branch or bush.
Your name and the best way to contact you can be encoded on the chip, which is tiny. Most vets and all shelters can scan these chips to get your contact information and there is no risk of losing the chip.
Your cat may feel that they rule your home or the universe. However, if you use the tips provided, they will soon learn who is really in charge. By establishing the ground rules, you can relax and enjoy the benefits of owning a lovable cat.
