Taking good care of your cat – Cat Sitters Los Angeles

Please visit Cat Sitters Los Angeles for Expert, Safe and Caring Cat Sitting in the Los Angeles.

Here are some VERY IMPORTANT tips to keep your cat living a long, healthy and happy life.

Make sure that you take your cat to the vet regularly for any vaccinations needed, and just a general checkup to see how your kitty is doing. If you notice anything different with your cat, such as the way they’re meowing, walking, or acting, and are worried, take your cat to the vet. Sickness nipped in the bud is the best kind. 2

Groom your cat regularly. Grooming is very important. It prevents hairballs, stimulates your cats’ blood flow, and provides some good bonding time for you and your cat. If your cat has long fur, a pin brush is best for working through long coat. A flat and slicker brush would work better for short fur. A smaller, triangular shaped brush can be used for smaller areas, like around the face and ears. If you want to use a comb, use a wide toothed comb for long fur, and a fine toothed one for short fur. You may want to buy a smaller and more gentle brush for a kitten.

Make sure to feed your cat the right type of food, at the right times, and the right amount. Feed your cat at the same time you eat-so he/she won’t be begging you for crumbs. Don’t feed huge amounts-just a small bowl will do. If your cat isn’t eating well, it may be a disease. Check with your local vet. If your cat is overweight, never, ever drastically drop the food amount-it is not at all good for cats to lose too much weight very quickly. Instead, try going to your vet and buying a special type of food which is high in protein, low in fat, and low in carbohydrate. Try not to feed your cat your food; it’ll become a habit. Give your cat water daily. Don’t feed your cat milk; cats can’t digest it.

Find some time to bond with your cat
. Simply feeding, grooming and taking a cat to the vet won’t fulfill their needs. Even ten minutes chasing a rubber ball around the house together is good. You can snuggle up to your kitty with a good book, dangle a toy in front of their nose, or give them a cuddle. Make sure you pet them every now and then-a little love goes a long way.

Provide your cat with a scratching post or a climbing tree, cats will naturally want to scratch, it’s a behavior from when they were wild that allowed them to mark their territory. Providing acceptable places they are allowed to scratch will save your belongings from cat claw damage. Cats love tall places, so a big, sturdy cat tree will not only provide a place to scratch, but will allow her to climb and enjoy a bird’s eye view of her surroundings.

Keep at least one litterbox per cat
. Keep boxes clean at all times. Some cat prefer uncovered boxes. Experiment with different types of cat litter, most cats prefer a natural wood-based litter. Many cats dislike the hard texture and perfume and dust of clay-based litters.

Help your cat get exercise
. Some cats, if left to their own devices, will just sit around the house not doing much of anything. Be your cat’s personal trainer! Toys are a great incentive to get your cat moving. Try tossing small toys for them to hit and chase. Fishing pole style toys or pocket flashlights let you give your cat a workout even when you’re worn out.

Let your cat be a cat
. Like it or not, you cat is going to do certain cat things that may bug you. Your best option is to give your cat a positive outlet for these behaviors. If you cat scratches your furniture, make sure he or she has a great scratching post to use instead. Your cat loves getting on the china shelf to look out the window? Move the china and put in some windowside cat furniture. The cat uses the spot behind the chair as a bathroom? Put a litterbox there and keep it clean. (You may also want to visit the vet to rule out an underlying medical problem.)

A Few Thoughts about Cat Sitters and Cat Sitting from www.CatSittingLosAngeles.com
Caring cat owners know that most cats adjust better to their owner’s absence and experience less anxiety and stress when they can remain in their home environments.  At cat sitting los angeles , we make this possible with daily visits to your home.  In addition to meals, exercise, playtime, and cleaning litter boxes, our cat sitters may also administer medications and perform other pet-care duties.  That’s why in-home pet care is the choice of pet owners and the “pet-preferred” method of vacation and travel care.  Cat sitters may also provide vital home-care services while you are away, including mail or newspaper pick up, placing trash outside for pickup or rotating the lights and opening or closing the blinds to make your house look lived in. A professional pet sitter provides peace of mind for everyone.

Why should I hire a professional?
While having friends, family, or neighbors care for your pets may seem like a logical choice, cat sitters do this for a living and have the experience necessary to care for your cats.  Since this is our job, you can count on us to be there.

What are the advantages for my cat?

  • Reduced Stress.  Your cat stays in its own safe, familiar secure environment where all the sights, smells and sounds say …. Home!
  • Diet and Exercise.  Customary diet and exercise routines are followed, with no interruption to upset your pet.
  • No “Travel Trauma.”  Travel in a vehicle to boarding facility or kennel may upset your pet.
  • Health Concerns.  With a cat sitter, there is minimal exposure to illness of other animals.
  • TLC.  Most importantly, your pet receives love and personal attention while you are away.

What are the advantages for me?

  • Travel.  You won’t be inconvenienced or upset by transporting your cat.
  • No Imposition.  You don’t have to impose on a friend, neighbor or relative to care for your cat, but instead rely on a cat care professional who will put you pet’s needs first.
  • Security.  Your home is made more secure by the crime deterrent services provided by most cat-sitting services.
  • Peace of Mind.  While you’re away, you can feel confident your cat is in capable, caring hands.
