Do you have a cat? Do you love them to bits? Do you want them to have the (purr)fect life? You’ve come to the right place! Cats need lots of love and attention so that they can return the favour. Here’s a list of all the things your cat needs to have the perfect life!
Here’s a list of all the things your cat needs to have the perfect life!
- A Healthy Diet:
Your cats need to be well fed so they can become big and strong. However, it’s important to know what they should eat. A healthy diet for your cat provides strong muscles, soft fur, fresh teeth and a suitable weight. Different meals work for different cats, so check with your vet what your cat should be eating and how much.
- A Comfy Bed:
It’s a well-known fact that cats sleep more than humans. They sleep about 16-20 hours a day, something that we’re envious of. Nevertheless, because they sleep so much, your kitty needs a fresh and comfy bed. It has to be the right size, and it has to been cleaned regularly so they don’t sleep in their own loose fur. It’s also important that they’re cleaned regularly for health benefits, both ours and our cats. This can be done with vacuums, brushes, or in the washing machine (check if the bed is suitable). Your cat will have the best beauty sleep ever!
- A Bunch of Toys:
Kitties are a playful bunch, so they’ll need some toys to play with. You can buy some toys from your local pet store, such as balls and fake mice. However, you can also make your own toys! Grab some loose string from around the house and have your cat chase it around. Or get some tin foil and roll it up into a ball for you cat to skid around your floors.
- A Sunny Day:
Cats need their daily dose of vitamin D as much as we do. When you’re heading out for the day, let you cat outside so that they can run around or take a nap beneath the trees. Some cats can be indoor ones, so give them a small handful of biscuits to lure them out. Your cat needs to be suitable to go outside too. Make sure that they’re not likely to get into fights or run away. You don’t want anything to happen to your little ball of fur!
- Plenty of Grooming:
When your cat goes outside, their fur is likely to get covered with leaves, dirt and sticks. Smooth their fur down with a good brush. Have their fur soft and shiny with a regular brushing session. It will reduce the likeliness of fleas and tics as well. Your cat may not like their knots getting brushed out, and they may bite or scratch you. This is a good opportunity to clip their nails. That way their nails are healthy, and they won’t be as sharp if they should scratch you. If you’re skittish about your cat scratching you, your Vet or local pet groomer will be happy to do it for you.
- A Bowl of Water:
Last, but certainly not least, a well-hydrated kitty is a happy kitty. Your cat will need a big bowl of water to drink throughout the day. Sorry, they need SEVERAL bowls of water. Have one next to where your cat eats and sleeps, and a couple outside, in the front and back yard. Especially during the warmer months, your kitty will likely get hot and bothered quickly. After all, they are wearing a fur coat that they can’t take off. Make sure that the bowls are clean and that they’re full. Your cat will gulp down that water fast.
Your cat will have the best owner ever with all these things you can provide for them. Be prepared for lots of cuddles as a reward!
