Keep a clean litter box
Maintaining a clean litter box is key to keeping both your cat and your living area clean and hygienic. Make sure to scoop each box at least once a day and wash it regularly to avoid any bacterial residue that could make you or your cat sick. Regular grooming can also help you notice changes in your cat’s urine or stool that may indicate health problems. Also, if there are multiple cats at home, make sure each has its own litter box to avoid overcrowding.

Check for CATS: coat, appetite, temperament, and size
The CATS system, developed by the IAMS brand, is an easy way to remember to check four key indicators of a healthy cat: coat, appetite, temperament, and size. While each cat’s coat is unique, a typical healthy coat shines with skin with no signs of dryness and minimal flaking. A cat with a healthy appetite often eats small meals, mimicking natural hunting behavior with infrequent hairballs or vomiting. To satisfy the “appetite” part of the CATS system, look for a nutritious cat food that offers a tailored diet based on your cat’s age or special dietary needs, such as: B. IAMS cat food. Regular sleep coupled with energy and playfulness are good signs of a healthy temperament. Checking a cat’s size means more than just being overweight or underweight; Look for a small layer of padding over his ribs that feels similar to the back of a human hand.

Spay or neuter
Changing your cat through neutering or neutering can have a long-term positive effect on its health and at the same time avoid unnecessary risks. According to the WALTHAM ™ Pocket Book of Responsible Pets, females who are before the age of 6 have inflammation of the gums.

Offer exercise opportunities
As with humans, exercise is vital to a healthy cat lifestyle. Set up a specific play time to encourage activity with toys to keep him or her busy and active. Try placing scratching posts in different locations throughout the house to encourage regular scratching and stretching. Sedentary lifestyle and boredom can lead to physical and emotional stress for your cat. Therefore, providing exercise opportunities can help keep your cat happy and healthy.
