The cats are really perfect clean animals. You can see the cat constantly cleaning their body parts using their tongue; this is a clear indication that the cats are hygiene conscious animals. If your cat breed is having long hair then you should use a comb for brushing. One can use power to keep the hair coat dry and clean. Proper grooming will help the cat to remain clean and most importantly the hair ball ingestion can be prevented.
The cats are in fact not picky animals. The cat will sleep in a place which she or he feels suitable and do not require any special bed. The cat beds should be preferable placed in a dark and silent place. If the cat is permitted to have comfortable sleep, the stress related health issues can be minimized. Few cats love to sleep in the lap of the pet owners like many other pets.
In case, If you have to travel with a cat away from home, better to have separate cat carrier which will prevent the cat from getting injured. There are three basic types of cat carriers. They are soft carrier, card board carrier and hard carrier.
The cats require regular exercise in order to remain healthy. The toys are the best way to make the cat active. As the cats are very much attracted towards the moving object, the battery operated rat toy is the best to engage the cat.
The cats are basically carnivores; one should always keep this in mind. Hence traditionally the cats are used to RAW diets. The cats know to prey on small animals. The little animals are rich in protein and energy and hence the cat’s digestive system is used to high protein and high energy diet. The protein requirement of an adult cat is not less that 20%. The cats should be provided fresh water as much as possible. The acidity level of the cat’s stomach is high when compared to the human beings. The RAW diet of the cat includes insects, small mammals, snakes, tiny birds, fishes, rodents and other small reptiles. The cats also like to consume chicken, heart, kidney, liver, muscle etc.
