1. Play with Your Cat

Playtime is essential for your cat, so schedule it every day. Because cats like to hunt, look for interactive toys that look like prey.

During play, move the toy to imitate the type of prey your cat is hunting, and make sure to end each session by allowing your cat to capture the toy.

  1. The Information

Scooping your cat’s litter box at least once a day will alert you to any potential medical problems, such as a potentially fatal urinary tract infection. If you notice a change in your cat’s litter box habits, contact your veterinarian right once.

  1. Elimination of Odors

Cats are generally repulsed by the odor of perfumed litters. Citrus-scented air fresheners or room deodorizers are also disliked near their litter boxes. Scoop your cat’s litter box twice daily and sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda to the bottom to decrease odors.

  1. Several Cat Shelters

You should have more than one litter box if you have more than one cat. The normal rule is one litter package plus one more.

  1. The View From Your Window

Birds and squirrels can keep the cat occupied for hours. Give your cat a window ledge and place a bird feeder in the yard for some bird-watching fun.

  1. All Cats Have to Scratch

It is vital to provide your cat with a variety of scratching stations, including horizontal and vertical posts as well as scratching pads. Vertical scratching posts should be at least three feet tall and extremely durable. Seek out posts made of natural fibers like sisal and burlap. Put them near your cat’s favorite napping position, areas where your family spends a lot of time together, and items that you don’t want your cat to scratch.

7. Kitty is a shy cat.

Many cats may initially hide when introduced to a new environment. You can help your cat through this transition period by giving him his own safe, quiet environment. Once he’s at ease, you can gradually introduce him to other areas of your home.


8. The Owl at Night

Cats are known to be active at night. To assist your cat adjust to your routine, give him interactive toys and frequent play sessions throughout the day, especially right before bed. This should tire him out and get him used to your routine.

  1. Keeping Kitty safe

The anticipated life span of a free-roaming cat is less than three years, compared to 15 to 18 years for an indoor-only cat. The best method to protect your kitten’s safety and health is to keep him indoors with you and your family.

  1. Experiment with Your Household Items

Cats are obsessed with cardboard! So provide your cat with a couple empty cardboard boxes of varying sizes. Empty toilet paper rolls can also be given to your cat. They’re great for batting around and revealing the tasty treats you’ve concealed within.
