How to Properly Care for Your Cat

Taking care of your cat in the cat care center

Owning a cat is a huge responsibility that the whole family should share. The most important things that young individuals should learn about cat care are as follows:

A cat should go to the vet at least once a year for a physical examination, which includes eyes, ears, and heart, as well as receive deworming/Diffie treatment and booster vaccinations. If your cat's health or behavior is of concern, it is important to see a vet immediately.


Every cat should undergo vaccination for diseases such as Feline Leukemia Virus or FeLV, Cat Flu, and Feline Infectious Gastroenteritis or FIE. Such diseases can endanger the life of the cat when infected, so it is important to go for preventive measures.


To stay healthy, your cat needs a good diet. Feed it with quality dry or tinned cat food, and make sure fresh water is always ready. Since cats are carnivores, they cannot survive on a diet with vegetables.


Neutering allows cats to be healthier and happier. When a male cat is neutered, he is less likely to wander away from home and engage in fights. A neutered female will no longer have kittens, which is an advantage as there is enough room in the UK to accommodate a lot of kittens. On the advice of your vet, kittens should be neutered by 4 to 6 months.

Playtime with your cat

Cats, especially kittens, should have time to play because this is where they learn essential skills in life, and it teaches them more about their environment.

In addition, the play makes good use of the cat's energy, allows him to stay fit and healthy, as well as an alert and active brain. The best games propel them to chase objects with their paws, pounce, stalk, and bat safely.

Best tips for playing


Even if cat toys are available from pet stores, you can save money and spend more time making some yourself.

Cats love interactive toys, so tie a string to a toy, then twist it around as if it were alive.

Indoor cats

Cats that live indoors need more entertainment than those outside. So, try making feeding more challenging by giving the cat biscuits through a puzzle feeder or plastic bottle, which is cut into a biscuit-sized hole with the help of an adult.

The cat will know that it will release a biscuit every time it taps the bottle. Also, he will eat his food slowly.
