How to Care for Your Cat

In fact, domestic animals never get to grow completely: It doesn't matter how old they are, they will continue depending on his owners. Our cat can surely live 14 or 15 years, probably a bit more, but in spite of arthritis and other geriatric diseases he continues being a kitty that looks up at us, just as he did it with his mother, in order for us to give him food, warmth and safety. Besides these basic survival ingredients, it is necessary to do everything what is needed to keep his health and comfort, vaccinating against the infectious diseases, protecting him from common parasites and taking him immediately to the veterinarian if you see him indisposed of some form. It is advisable to keep him, until its pedigree can be used as for the reproduction .

Even these requirements are relatively minimal, however, they constitute a serious responsibility that must not be thought of carelessly. If we satisfy the physical needs of our cat and give him very much affection and attention, the prize will be an affectionate, healthy and beautiful companion, who will radiate well-being from the moustaches up to the top of the tail.

Q/A. We already have a dog in the family, but we would like very much to have a cat, is it not a good idea?

Not necessarily. It should be easy if your dog is polite and if a very young kitten is chosen. If you want an adult cat, it is even more important to find one that is accustomed to dogs.

My son is allergic to cats, but he continues wanting to have a kitten, can this be a problem?

It depends on your son's allergy intensity. If it isn't but a slight allergy, he can coexist comfortably with a short hair cat, or those with loose short hair - as a Rex . Providing that the vacuum cleaner does its job at home and one does not allow the cat come in the room. If one has a strong allergy, the best is to choose another pet. You might want a guinea pig instead, or a small dog that does not loose hair, maybe a water dog or a Triesian.

I would like to buy a cat for my elderly mother. But, if I choose a kitty, it might live more than her and if I take an adult cat and dies, it would be terrible for her. What is your advise?

The first thing is to know if your mother wants to have a cat and if she is active enough as to take care of him and take him to the veterinarian. If it is like that, you should probably seek even for a young-adult cat.
