I have listed a few ways to ensure your cat remains healthy and happy.
Food – always ensure there is plenty of food available, Mr Fluff loves little and often like a lot of cats and loves nothing more than fresh water (Mr Fluff likes filtered water out of the fridge).
Toys – provide a variety of toys to stimulate their active minds. Mr Fluff enjoys playing with catnip toys and also toys with hidden food inside.
Sleep – ensure there is somewhere safe and comfy for them to sleep. Mr Fluff detests cat beds and we have spent a small fortune trying to find him something he will love, they were all a waste of money. He likes nothing more than curling up on the bed (all day).
Grooming – Fluff is long haired and therefore needs to be combed on a regular basis, this is a slight problem! Mr Fluff does not like being combed and will hiss and grumble all the time I am doing it. He is gradually getting better though, little and often is the aim and over time the length he allows me to do it is growing.
Vet Checks – Ensure your cat is micro chipped and vaccinated. Mr Fluff has twice yearly checks with the veterinary nurse to ensure he is in tip top condition and receives regular flea and worming treatments.
Obviously if you have any concerns about your cat then please do discuss this with you local Vet. The RSPCA also have lots of useful information.
