Cat General Issues
You took a small creature into the house. This is not a cute fluffy toy, but a lively cat child, requiring a lot of attention, care, and love, however, like all the kids. He may be sad, lonely, scared the first days in a new place, he will cry, he won’t immediately understand where his toilet is, he will look for his mother and siblings. Try to give him more attention in these first difficult days, do not scold, often talk with him, caress. As a rule, a kitten remembers its name almost immediately, the main thing is to call it all the time with one nickname and at first connect it with feeding, caress, and other pleasant moments. Try not to allow small children to the kitten that could cause him accidental harm, you should not let him drag him in his arms too much, squeeze – cats from birth love freedom and independence, they never put up with the situation of a living toy and can become dangerous, like any predator, even a small one. Relationships with a cat from the very first days should be built primarily on mutual respect, remember that these animals value their independence and dignity very much, are proud, noble, and fair, do not tolerate violence, orders, and rudeness, perfectly appreciate their kind and respectful attitude and give your love a hundredfold.
Remember, once and for all: you can not shout at a kitten and an adult cat, you can not beat and scare. The animals do not understand human words, and no matter how much you say to your pet that you can’t write here, you can’t bite him, but you can’t go in there, he will never understand you, and if you reprimand him even with elevated tones, he’ll be scared, harboring fear and distrust. The most common conflicts with a cat or cat arise in the toilet issue. Cats are very clean and require the same from their owners. The cat’s toilet should always be washed or it should have clean filler. Most often, kittens already know how to go to a certain place, they learn this from their mother, and the new owners only need to show where the toilet is.
Do not be alarmed at the first “misses” past the cuvette – the kitten is too busy exploring the new world, it may get lost, get lost, forget where the toilet is. In no case do you need to grab him by the scruff of his neck, poke his nose into a puddle or a heap and drag him into the toilet with formidable screams: the kitten will understand nothing, it will only get scared, and it may not connect its fear with the puddle on the floor, namely with the toilet where they poked him so rudely. Dip a piece of paper in a puddle, put it in a cat’s toilet and put a kitten there, he will guess everything. The main thing is to do everything calmly, without screaming and anger. Often cats express their dissatisfaction with the behavior of the owner by a sudden refusal to go to the toilet, begin to do their business anywhere, in the most unexpected and outrageous places. The owner should first of all sort out himself – does he offend the cat, does he monitor the cleanliness of the toilet, etc. Often, a kitten, and an adult cat, cannot be washed: the protective fat layer is washed off from the hairs, the hair deteriorates, Yes, and there is a risk of catching a cold. It is necessary to wash it in case of an emergency if the kitten is very dirty or has run into the street.
Even if the kitten does not go outside, it can catch fleas and ear mites that “come” to our apartments on shoes, dog paws, etc. After treatment with suitable products, just in case the kitten needs to drive off worms. In general, for prophylaxis, the animal needs to be given anthelmintic twice a year, in spring and autumn. If the catwalks freely, it is better for her to get the necessary vaccinations in the veterinary clinic and wear an anti-flea collar. The collar will at the same time indicate that the cat is domestic and not homeless, and will protect it from the troubles associated not only with fleas.
