Tips to Keep Your Cat Healthy and Happy


Many of us regard our cats as another member of the family. With that in mind, it is important to know the tips and tricks on how to keep your cat healthy and happy. Here are a few examples.

Entertainment

Having toys and equipment for your cat can help them flourish and keep them happy. It is important to have a bond with your cat, so you can both understand one another more and be able to work out your cat’s personality traits. Letting your cat have regular playtime can help stimulate their mind and give them the entertainment they need. If your cat is predominately indoors, giving them interactive toys whilst you are away can help keep them entertained. 
Balanced Diet

Ensuring your cat follows a healthy and well-balanced diet will give them the nutrients and vitamins they need to fulfill a long and happy life. Although it can be easy to give in to temptation and give your cats treats, it is important that everything you feed your cat is in moderation. Also, it is recommended to feed your cat a mixture of dry food and meat. Having a predominately dry food-based diet for your cat can be damaging due to excessive carbohydrates. 
Maintenance 

No matter what type of cat you have, introducing regular grooming can have many benefits. If your cat is longhaired, it is important to stay on top of brushing excess hair, otherwise, this can lead to the fur becoming matted and tangled. Frequent brushing for a shorthaired cat can also be beneficial as this can cut down on shedding, as well as the amount of hair ingested through their own self-grooming. 
Check-Ups

Having regular checkups at the vet is essential to ensuring your cat stays healthy. Your vet will be able to conduct a thorough examination of your cat and be able to identify anything abnormal. There are various conditions your cat can develop, such as worms. Taking the time to look online at how to get rid of worms in cats can give you a better understanding and what necessary measures need to be taken to treat your cat.
Hygiene

Although cats are known for being able to look after themselves when it comes to personal hygiene, it is important that you have the right equipment for them to be able to maintain it. There are many litter trays on the market that can offer unique features to suit you and your cat’s needs. For example, many owners purchase an auto litter box for their cat, as it means they do not have to clean out their litter tray each day. Make sure to research into what sort of litter tray is right for your cat.

If you would like more tips on how to keep your cat healthy and happy, there are many online websites that you can visit that can give you many more examples and provide you with the information you need.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
