With time, you will get to know more of your cats needs by intimacy, but do not wait to provide its basic needs before then.
Keep The Litter Box Clean
If it is possible, empty and clean up the litter box more than once daily. It’s not just healthy to keep faeces and urine away from areas frequented by persons in your home, but cats are actually very clean animals that prefer their litter box to be always clean when they have to ‘go’. The case of having cats suddenly beginning to pee or poo in places outside their litter boxes, even after they’ve been taught and accustomed to using the litter box is traced to frequently having dirty litter box. The cats will ‘go’ elsewhere that seems clean enough for their pride! Asides that, frequently checking on your cat’s faeces and urine helps you identify abnormalities and suspicious changes quickly. This means you can tackle whatever health problems your cats may be having very quickly.
Grooming Your Cat Should Be Reasonable
Many people hold a different opinion, but cats do not always want to be cuddle and carried or kissed. Sometimes, they want to just play around or rest on their own. As a pet owner, you must be sensitive to the signals your cat gives to avoid being scratched at. Well, you may be scratched on harmless occasions, but it’s only reasonable to reduce your cat scars. Comb out the long hair if your cat has long hair; bathe your cat reasonably with cat shampoo and warm water, not every time though; provide toys to help your cat play by itself.
