If you have multiple cats, save money on cat dishes by checking your local dollar store for salsa dishes. You can usually get a package of three for a dollar. These are sturdy and come in pretty colors. They look nice in your kitchen, and they are just the right size for cat food.

 

Make sure to keep your cat's litter box clean at all times. Most cats do not like to use a dirty litter box, much like you would not want to use a dirty toilet. Scoop it at least once a day. Empty and give it a good cleaning once a week or more if needed.

 

If your cat is an outdoor cat or a cat that has a habit of getting outside, they need proper identification. The cat should have a safety collar and an ID tag. Safety collars that have elastic bands allow cats to get out of the collar if they get it caught on something. An ID tag or an implanted microchip can help your cat get returned if they're lost.

 

Cats and electrical cords don't mix. If you notice your cat has a habit of chewing on electric cords, try to bundle them up and hide them out of the cat's reach. If that's not possible, spray a little bit of bitter apple onto the cords. Not only is bitter apple non-toxic, cats absolutely hate the taste.

 

Normally cats are nocturnal animals. They are often active at nighttime. If you have trouble sleeping because of cats, you may want to close the door to your bedroom. This can keep them from waking you up at night and from pouncing on feet under the blankets.

 

When the cat's litter box starts to become rough and worn at the bottom, it is time to replace it. If you leave it this way, it will cause waste to accumulate in damaged areas. Your cat may be very offended by the odor and decide to use the bathroom somewhere else in the house.

 

Just as important as it is to take care of your own teeth, you need to take care of your cats as well. Cats can develop tarter and plaque build-up over time. Purchasing a toothbrush and toothpaste made specially for felines is a great way to keep your cats teeth clean and healthy.

 

Keep your cat's vaccinations and checkups up to date with the vet. A kitten is not so different from a child. It needs properly-scheduled check-ups and immunizations to prevent medical complications down the road. Your cat is wonderful addition to the family, and must be cared for in the same way that you would treat all members of your household.

 

Although cats may not be considered man's best friend like dogs are, they can make excellent household pets. Cats will go for the kill, unlike dogs. It's easy to see why so many people have fallen for the company of cats.
