Prepare to constantly feeling like your cat is trying to get you to trip because that’s what most of them do…. 😂
My cat eats dry food, Wellness brand. Once in a while i give her some wet food as a treat/special occasion. Make sure to do your research. For cats the less grains the better so any food that is grain free is much better than one that has grain fillers. Buy small sample sizes and see what the kitty likes, what makes her stomach upset etc. I stick to “Welness” and rotate between 2-3 flavours ever time I get a bag I make sure it’s different than the last one, this way she doesnt get bored, rotate 2-3 flavours this way, not every meal cause then she will become too picky. When I’m eating fish or meat i give her a little piece for the sake or variety 🙂 and a tiny piece of butter every week, for coat health 🙂
Once the kitty gets to 5-7 y.o. you can add a supplement for joints health to try prevent arthrits 🙂
Some cats are weird and like to try different foods (eggs, icecream) just google if it’s toxic or not first.)
Most cats love to nibble on houseplants… so kitty grass is good to have (my cat mostly ignores it though) so I make sure to not have toxic plants in the house as she will try to eat whatever. Lillies and Poinsettias are a big no-no fyi. Again google plants…
Make sure there is a designated spot for the cat to scratch/trim it’s own nails, like a carboard scratcher or a scratch post. Please for the love of everything do not declaw your kitties that is so cruel 😢
If you have a leather couch, I hope you dont love it too much cause it may get ruined.
Clean the litter box daily, and i highly recomend clumping litter.
Brush regularly from an early age so they are used to it, it helps with shedding too.
Kittens need regular baths as they can get into messes and dont know how to clean themselves yet. Adult cats… I give a bath maybe every couple years? No more than once a year for sure.
It your cat has a scratching thing it uses regularly, nail trims will be a biyearly thing at most, if not then ever couple months.
Also dont bother with fancy beds or cat condos. I have had 4 cats in my life 3 males, 1 female and NONE of them ever used an actual cat bed. They LOVE carboard boxes. My current kitty loves her square shallow Amazon box. 😂😂
Happy catting 🙂
