September Means Awareness for Happy, Healthy Cat Month
September is the National Month of the Happy, Healthy Cat. Do you know what the best way to celebrate this month is? By having a cat that is happy and healthy of course! Cats are easier to please than you would think; however, seeing to it that your feline pal is healthy may mean you will need to put in a little effort. It will be well worth all the trouble! For pet parents who know what they’re doing, every month needs to be Happy, Healthy Cat Month. September is a great time to raise awareness of what must be done for our feline friends!
One way to definitely keep your cat happy is to make sure they’re healthy. You shouldn’t ever wait until you surmise that your cat could be sick before seeing the vet. Cats don’t like others to know if they’re hurt. This is an evolutionary throwback from when cats lived in the wild. Take Kitty to the vet for not only preventive treatments but regular check-ups. Irritating insects incite itching in your illustrious pet, even indoors. Inquire about beneficial pest prevention methods from your vet. If you are of modest means, health insurance is available for cats. Ask about it.
No pet parent will find themselves having trouble getting their healthy cat to eat. Meat is your cat’s favourite food. Cats need food that has lots of protein and very few to no carbs. Cats are obligate carnivores. That means a cat needs to have meat. Your cat’s food must list meat of some form as the primary ingredient. There should be no artificial additives, fillers, or colours in your cat’s food. Every cat has unique nutritional needs. Ask the vet what would be effective.
A ubiquitous but harmful error is to overfeed your cat. It is all too easy to confuse food with love and give your darling pet more food than what’s good. Kitty will have to problem with that. This results in a chubby munchkin with a high risk of cancer, diabetes, and arthritis. Your cat should be getting ample exercise as well.
One sure way to see to it your cat happy is to let her have fun. Provide scratching posts and climbing trees so that she can have her fun without ravaging your home. Give her your time as well. Throw some toys for her, dangle the string.
This may seem like a miniscule thing, but it’s very important indeed to a cat. Cats like to be neat and clean. A tidy cat likes something more than just occasional grooming. Cats like it when their litter box is clean. So will you! Pick out a tray and litter that fits your cat best!
