9. Freshen Up The Litter Box Everyday
Cats are very clean animals, and most are very picky about their litter box habits. While it may not be the most fun thing to do in the world, cleaning your cat’s litter box every day ensures good bathroom habits for your pet. They’ll be less inclined to leave you unwanted surprises elsewhere, which will help you with keeping your house smelling better.
9. Promote Good Hygiene
From a clean litter box to brushing knots out of your cat’s fur regularly, promoting good hygiene is important to your cat’s health and happiness. The ASPCA suggests that long-haired cats should be brushed every few days, while short-haired cats only need to be brushed one or two times a week. Generally, your cat should be capable of taking care of its own grooming, with bathing reserved for instances when your cat gets particularly dirty or into something messy. Remember to have your cat’s teeth checked when you visit the vet, and make sure you know how to properly brush your cat’s teeth, should you need to do so. Wash your cat’s food bowls every other day, and wash their toys and collars every few weeks. If you have an outdoor cat, make sure your pet is treated for fleas and ticks.
4. Make a DIY Cat Toy …
From catnip mice to feathers tied to a stick, your cat loves playing with its favorite toys. It’s good for them to keep active while playing — and sometimes, it doesn’t take much to keep your cat entertained. You don’t have to spend a fortune to provide your cat with a toy they’ll love. Get creative with household items such as some simple pipe cleaners, old socks, or a cardboard box or tube. Make your own catnip “mice” by getting creative with the classic ball of yarn and hiding some catnip inside for your feline to find.
