Scroll down to learn more about how you could safeguard your pet and have peace of mind.
Cover Your Balcony
The first thing that you could do is make sure that your balcony is well covered. Tie your cat with a cat leash and tie the end of the leash to a safe place. Let them roam the balcony, but make sure you pay attention to your furry friend because they are cunning and clever and will try to break the barriers. Build a bar around your balcony. This can be done with chicken wire, wooden fences, or any other type of solid metal. The type of equipment you use depends on the breed and size of your cat.
Choose the Right Cat Litter
When it comes to cat litter, there is a lot to consider. In an apartment, your primary concern is often the smell and spoilage. And this depends very much on where you put the garbage. The main options are usually the bathroom and balcony. The balcony is great if you get a permanent kitty installation, as it is airy and the smell will not last.
When you serve delicious tuna or raw meat to your feline friend, any remnants will bring out and attract all sorts of critters into your home.
This is why it is important to clean your cat’s food container and cover it immediately after a meal to keep out insects such as ants and cockroaches. And keep your home tidy.
Invest in Storage
Open shelves may look good, but they may not fit well with cats. Arriving home to a broken pot of scattered rice is a common occurrence. Cats are natural explorers and will not consider your valuables. If your cat is left alone during the day, it is best to place your belongings behind a closed closet.
Keep Things Fun
A bored cat can be your worst nightmare. A cat can be a happy pet but it needs to be encouraged. Change its toys at regular intervals to keep things fresh and interactive, and make sure you have a scratch post for them to scratch.
And most importantly, don’t forget to spend quality time with your feline friend when you get home.
