Taking Care Of Your Pet Cat
By Michael Colucci
Before purchasing for yourself a Siamese cat or a rag doll as your pet, make sure that one, youâ€™re not allergic to cats and secondly, your place of living allows house owners to have pets. If you have a problem with any of the two options, you might have to reconsider your decision to own a pet after all.
But if thereâ€™s no problem with any of those, here are our general tips to help you take good care of your pet cat.
Thereâ€™s a reason why cats are said to have nine lives so if youâ€™re planning to own a pet cat, be aware that the normal lifespan of a pet cat kept indoors could reach up to 17 years or so. If thatâ€™s okay with you then great, proceed with your purchase of a pet cat.
When you do finally own a pet cat, do keep in mind that your pet cat has to be neutered or spayed before he reaches maturity. This is a necessity if you donâ€™t want your house to be reeking of your pet catâ€™s urine. The best possible time for spaying would be before your pet cat is seven to eight months old.
With pet cats, you must have dry food ready for their consumption at all times. Letting your pet cat live on a daily and regular canned food diet will only result to having a malnourished pet cat and surely you donâ€™t want that? And although dogs can certainly consume and stay healthy with cat food, this is not a vice versa thing with pet cats.
With pet cats, a vaccination is necessary to prevent and minimize the chances of your pet cat experiencing respiratory problems later on. Itâ€™s better to have your pet cat vaccinated as early as possible. In fact, your pet kitten must be vaccinated several times just to make sure that your pet cat will experience the desired outcome.
Always check and feel your pet cat for scratches, burns, wounds and other things that could result to infection or pain for your pet cat. If your children are fond of playing with your pet cat, there could be times that theyâ€™ve left a rubber band around the neck of your pet cat for a long time, long enough to form a bruise.
And thatâ€™s the end of our article on pet cats. Hope you have fun with your pet cat!
