A cat is a wonderful addition to your family.Those that haven’t owned a cat before would be wise to read the following article. Below are some great tips and tricks that will help any cat owner needs to know in order to live happily with their new feline friend.

Cats really enjoy getting into small spaces. A breakaway style collar will literally “break away” if it is pulled too tightly. This could save your cat if it gets caught in a tight spot.

Wrap it in an old towel and place it under your kitty’s favorite resting spot. Change every few hours if you feel the need.

Make sure your cat has a collar if outside.Cats can range far from your home and without a tag they could become lost forever. The tag should contain your name and the number where you can be reached.

Think about getting a microchip inserted in your cat. Even cats who live completely indoors may someday jump through an open window. Collars and tags can help get your cat home, however cats are experts at wiggling out of these, and they are also at risk of getting hung up on something. A teeny microchip can hold the contact information.

Cats can tend to be more often than not. This refers to the fact that they’re going to be running around more when it gets dark. This will keep them from waking you up at night and from pouncing on feet under the cats away while you’re trying to sleep because they won’t be jumping all over you.

Be considerate of your cat’s ears when you take them on a trip. Although you might enjoy jamming to your music, your cat would probably prefer softer sounds. To keep your cat calm and collected over the course of your trip, turn off the music or keep the volume low.

Cats are generally great with kids, but little ones may not understand that they are fragile. Make sure your child knows how cats should be handled. Teach them about appropriate activities and how to gently touch it. Cats have more fragile bones than dogs so should be treated carefully.

So, you have a cat or you are thinking about getting a cat. They can really be comforting. However, you must know how to take proper care of your cat if you want to live in peace and harmony. Use the tips below to make sure you and your pet have a happy relationship for years to come.
