Do cats brush their teeth?

To maintain oral health, we brush our teeth twice a day. And what about our pets? Do cats need to brush their teeth or has nature foreseen everything?

Nature is nature, but the teeth of cats lose their whiteness in the same way. Plaque appears on them, which eventually turns into tartar, causes gum inflammation and destroys teeth. But if you regularly look after the pet’s oral cavity, all these problems can be avoided. How to do it?

A daily brushing would easily solve the problem: a toothbrush removes 80% of plaque in just half a minute! But how often do you meet cats who like this procedure? That’s right, there are none. So, we use other methods. We will please you: there are many of them!
Step 1. Proper nutrition.
Dental health directly depends on the nature of the diet. Any food that is not suitable for a cat is a burden on the oral cavity and the digestive system as a whole. But if a cat eats high-quality dry food, its teeth are safer. Dry granules mechanically remove plaque from the teeth and prevent the formation of tartar. Cat’s teeth are cleaned right with food. And no water, brushes or paste! Continue reading

Why does a cat have a mustache?

What is the name of a mustache for cats and what are they?
The mustache in cats grows not only under the nose, but also on the forehead, near the eyes, on the chin and even on the paws. More precisely, it is correct to call them not “mustache”, but “vibrissa”. These are sensitive, hard hairs that are longer than the coat. There are about 40 pieces of such hairs on the cat’s body, and only 24 of them are on the face.

Unlike simple hair, vibrissae are surrounded by hundreds of nerve endings and muscle fibers, and their root goes deep into the tissue.

Each vibrissa is a separate organ of touch, which 24 hours a day uninterruptedly transmits a signal to the animal’s brain. Vibrissas are present not only in cats, but also in many other mammals, including dogs. Continue reading

Ferret and cat under one roof.

Domestic ferret and cat
Cats and ferrets have a lot in common. They are ideal for home maintenance: they are compact, do not require long walks, are very affectionate, active and just love to play.

For many owners, such a duet becomes a real salvation: hyperactive pets themselves entertain each other, which is very useful after a long day’s work. But there is another side. Both ferrets and cats are predators by nature, and not just predators, but competitors. In the wild, they lead a similar lifestyle, prey on birds and rodents. And also those and others have a difficult character, are demanding and, as a rule, do not give offense.

The cohabitation of ferrets and cats under one roof develops according to two opposite scenarios: they either become best friends or ignore each other, entering into conflict in the slightest case. Continue reading
