Litter Trays

Cats are the most fastidious of animals and are easily housetrained to use a litter tray. There are many different styles of boxes and types of litter. Litter choices include dry earth recycled paper sand clumping clay and natural litter pellets. Cats have an undeniable preference when it comes to which litter they would prefer to use. Be prepared to trial a few and once your cat is happy do not change it.

Litter box placement if very important. It should be in a place where your cat can get to it without difficulty and where you can get to it easily to scoop and clean. Most cats do not like to be exposed whilst toileting and some can be quite shy and require privacy. An easy to reach but discreet corner is often the best option. Cats are creatures of habit and dislike change – once your cat is used to the location of the litter box changing it can be difficult.

Keeping the litter box clean is of utmost importance. More cats have accidents because their box is dirty than for any other reason. Keeping the box clean is much easier than trying to retrain a cat who has decided that her box is filthy and refuses to use it. A litter tray should be scooped at least once a day and should be completely emptied of litter and thoroughly washed on a regular basis.

Exercise and Play

Whilst cats are not nearly as active as dogs it is important that they have the opportunity to exercise. Exercise will keep your cat’s body healthy its mind sharp and will keep it out of trouble. Many cats will run laps around the house up and over the furniture around the dining room table and off the walls when they need exercise. If you have an appropriate outside area allow your cat to exercise in the garden during the day but ensure that they are safely indoors at night.

Play is an important part in keeping your cat active and happy. Provide your cat with a variety of toys and rotate them on a regular basis to ensure that your cat is constantly stimulated. Leave some small toys such as a little ball or a furry mouse around for your cat to play with at any time. Take time each day to interact and play with your cat.

Grooming

Regular combing and brushing of long-haired cats is essential and most owners find that this is a daily requirement. Shorthaired cats are able to groom themselves except at moulting time when assistance from the owner by daily brushing is necessary. It may also be occasionally necessary to bathe your cat. Most cats are frightened of being bathed so great care must be taken.

When cats swallow hair it can result in the formation of a hair mass in the stomach known as a "fur ball." During the moulting season it may be necessary to give a teaspoonful of paraffin oil mixed with food to help eliminate fur balls.
