Tip 1 – Take care of the health of the pussy
Keep the check-up up to date with the vet. This is important to prevent the cat from having health problems and, thus, stay away from diseases that can be transmitted between cats such as FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), FELV (feline leukemia virus), the feline respiratory complex (caused by three main agents: feline herpesvirus, feline calicivirus and bacteria Chlamydophila felis and Bordetella bronchiseptica), sporotrichosis (infection caused by the fungus Sporothrix schenckii), as well as worms, fleas and ticks.
Tip 2 – Have an environment equipped for it
Set aside a space in the house for the cat with everything he may need: fresh water, food, a litter box away from the feeder and a refuge for him to take shelter. It is important that the space is comfortable, safe and easily accessible, such as little touches that have an entrance and exit.
Tip 3 – Prepare your home to ensure the cat’s safety
Some care for the environment is essential for the safety of the pussies. To do this, remove any plants and flowers that may be toxic such as azaleas and lilies. Also be careful with small glass decoration objects, needles with threads, dental floss, pieces of plastic and others. Take care with sharp or sharp objects that can be reached and dropped.
When cleaning, pay attention to the use of products with a strong smell because cats are sensitive animals and have a good sense of smell – which can be harmed and have consequences such as allergies and respiratory problems.
Tip 4 – Enrich the environment
Environmental enrichment must be done with objects necessary to encourage the cat to perform its natural behaviors. It is an animal that, in essence, is a hunter. So, offer toys that can be used as “prey” for the feline, tunnels, scratchers and burrows, etc. Always avoid old toys that are destroyed and that may have parts ingested during play.
Tip 5 – Be careful not to change the feline’s routine
It is important that the minimum change in the house takes place whenever possible. Cats like to maintain their habits and changes can be more difficult for them. When the cat feels that this is changing, problems can occur, for example, it stops eating. Stay tuned!
