The First Care Guide for your Whiskers


You might have noticed a lot of times that your kittens snuggle around you and keep their tails quivering, that’s their way of telling how much they love you. Sweet isn’t it? Although saying, “I love you too, kitty” isn’t enough as these loving felines need more care and affection than any other pets.

Here are a few general guidelines for you to ensure that your cat lives a good, happy, and healthy life.

  • Vet Checks
    You should take your cat for a regular check-up and vaccinations to keep a tab on their health. If any change in cat’s meowing, acting, eating, walking etc is noticed you should take him in for a check-up as soon as possible.
  • Grooming
    Your cats should be groomed regularly as it helps in preventing hair balls, increases blood flow, and keeps the coat shiny and quoted. The more you groom less are the chances of hair being left on your palm when you pet or snuggle them, thus increasing the bonding time.
  • Feeding
    You should feed your cat the right food at the right time. Always consult your vet before giving or changing the meal. Adult cats are lactose intolerant, and hence dairy products should be avoided. You can get online pet food and products, but you should always counter check with your vet for the correct cat food.
  • Bonding
    Grooming, feeding and vaccinating are not enough to ensure a loving relationship between you and your feline. A cat needs a little snuggle once in a while. Chasing together a ball of fur, scratching around their neck (they really love being scratched), or even petting their nose is a gesture well understood by the cat and by this way you will surely have a long loving relationship
  • Cleanliness
    Their litter box should be cleaned everyday and for each cat , there should be different litter box. Cats are very peculiar and choosy as some prefer an open litter box while some dislike the texture or the filling you keep inside.
  • Exercise
    Cats give  humans a tough competition when it comes to be a couch potato. The cats can keep lying lazily all day long at their favorite spot, but it is your responsibility to be their personal trainer. Tossing a toy in front of them ensures your feline moves and will play with their toy and you.
  • Anti – Feline Ingredients
    Cats are very picky eaters and at times we unknowingly feed them food which turns to be poison for them. Here is a list of must avoids at any cost or condition as they are poisonous for your loving cats:
    • Alcohol
    • Caffeine
    • Candy
    • Chocolate
    • Dairy Products
    • Garlic
    • Onion
    • Yeast Dough

Cats are wonderful domestic animals, and to be true no animal is as affectionate and elegant as a cat is. They have always served as humble companions for the human beings. Their purring and twitching tails are enough for any cat lover to understand how affectionate they are, when we are around. Love conveyed in form is love and all you have to do is love them back.

  1. I was so glad to go through the list and could ‘tick off’ every single point you discussed. I sure love my two little babies like children in my home. For a bachelor they sure provide enough love to live by…

    Thanks for sharing!
