Cat Haven Kittens – Handy Feline Tips Can Be Found In The Below Post.

Cats are creatures that love fun and can help you lose track of your time if they play games with you. That said, they need to be entertained. Fun with a cat does not always involve the expenditure of money. Do as this article suggests and things will run smoother with your feline friend.

Cats really enjoy squeezing into any and all small spaces. If they have a collar, this can be a safety issue if they get stuck. Therefore, use a breakaway collar that will come undone whenever it’s being pulled very tightly. This will allow your cat to live another day if it gets tangled up.

Choose a high quality food. The key to a healthy cat starts with nutrition. Take a look at the ingredients label. If you look at most “popular” commercial cat foods, you may be surprised to see the top ingredient listed is corn. Cats are carnivores, so look for a food with a real meat as the top ingredient. You may pay more up front, but these foods are often more nutritionally dense, meaning your cat eats less and the bag lasts longer.

Have your kids help you take care of the cat. Assign daily jobs such as feeding the cat and cleaning the litter box. Not only will taking care of the cat teach them responsibility, it also gives you a break from these tasks. This means that you can spend more time cuddling with your cat.

If you find you cat is harming furniture or other objects, it may be bored. Keep a few safe toys around for your cat to play with. Scratching posts can also deter your cat from scratching your furniture. Or, build a small cat house out of cardboard. Your cat will love having a place to hide, and the cardboard can also be used to scratch on!

Do you love playing with your cat? These tips won’t work for every cat, but most felines will find them to be favorable. Just as with people, fun and activity help extend a cat’s life.
