Cat owners who love their pets can save a lot of money and time shopping by realizing that the best tool for effective playtime is human interaction.
Of you’re considering entering the world of owning a cat, take a moment and ask yourself what it is that you are expecting from the experience.
Most people who have shared their homes with cats have witnessed more than their share of vomiting. Most of the time, these are isolated incidents that cause no more stress for pet and owner than the amount of distress caused by stepping in the pile with one’s bare feet.
If your cat has blood in its stool on only one occasion, and otherwise appears to be eating, drinking and acting normally, the cause may simply be a minor gastrointestinal upset, such as eating too much, eating a unfamiliar food, or eating something that does not agree with him.
Perhaps one of the things that take people by surprise the most is how much a kitten actually costs. Just like a car, it’s not the getting of it, but the upkeep. As well as having the basics covered – food, litter, dishes, toys, etc – you also need to take into account the ongoing cost of caring for a kitten as it grows up.
Okay, but why do cats scratch when there’s no threat to their territory. In part because it’s instinctive. Cats will need to scratch whether they are the only other living being in the household or whether you run a foster home for kitties, with new feline friends coming and going regularly.
Whether your cat is an indoor cat or an outdoor cat, there are compelling reasons to choose to have her fixed. Some owners think that if the cat lives strictly indoors, that having her fixed is not necessary. If you consider the health benefits, however, it’s clear to see that spaying benefits all cats.
