Just because your kitty has won the independent house pet of the year award 9 lives in a row doesn’t mean that he or she doesn’t need a bit of pampering and looking after from time to time. Here at NuVet Labs, we want your cat to live long and prosper and to enjoy countless years of healthy and active living.
Cat’s can live up to 20 years with the proper care and diet, and although they usually aren’t as big of a commitment or responsibility as their canine counterparts, they still do require a good amount of care and attention.
It is vital that you take your cat to the veterinarian for regular check-ups as well as vaccinations. If you have an outdoor cat especially, it can have higher risk of issues, so make sure you cat is up to date on all its shots and watch out for any signs of sickness.
Feeding your cat is clearly an important part of maintaining its healthy lifestyle as well as its weight. With the many different brands of cat food out there it may be a bit difficult to judge which kibble is best, but in most cases you can probably trust the medically and scientifically designed formulas that you find at your local pet store. Also make sure that your cat has fresh and clean water 24/7 and that you are providing him or her with the proper vitamins and supplements.
Typically cats are considered to be very clean animals and don’t usually need to be given an actual bath, but this does not mean that cats don’t need regular grooming. All cats, whether long or short-haired, should be groomed and brushed regularly to keep their coats and skin healthy, prevent matting, and reduce shedding and hairballs. Cats also need to have their claws clipped from time to time to prevent them from growing into their paws. By simply grooming your cat, you can find out if it has any lumps, fleas or injuries, and it is a good way to bond with your beloved animal as well.
Most cats will instinctively know how to use a litter box and all you need to do is show your cat where it is. Be sure to scoop the litter box at least once daily and wash it with dish liquid and hot water from time to time to keep it free from bacteria.
If you own a cat you already know that they are quite funny and entertaining little creatures and can usually have loads of fun just by themselves. However, regular play sessions with your cat will provide both the physical and mental stimulation he or she needs and it will strengthen the bond you share. We recommend that you purchase some toys/scratching posts to keep your cat from clawing away at your furniture and clothing.
