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
Talent to climb trees in cats’ blood. Even the most well-fed cat can easily climb a tree. But getting down from it is not so easy. Especially when it comes to a domestic cat who escaped and climbed a tree from fear. Unsuccessful “scouts” scream heart-rendingly, cling to branches or a trunk, are afraid to move and, it seems, are not going to overdo their fear. How to help them? How to remove a cat from a tree?
The cat climbed a tree: what to do?
1. The first thing to do is to eliminate potential scary factors. Perhaps the cat was frightened by the dog, which continues to walk nearby, crowds or firecrackers. It is very likely that the cat will descend from the tree itself when it realizes that it has nothing to fear.
2. Clean the area around the tree. Of course, it is not necessary to pick up candy wrappers, but it is better to remove fragments of glass, sharp sticks, stones and other dangerous objects. It is impossible to predict where the jumping cat will land. Try to protect her from injuries. Continue reading
Cats often surprise their owners with strange habits. Some refuse to drink from a bowl, but stubbornly attack the tap. Others arrange the most rigorous test drive for fillers. Still others act like an alarm clock in the middle of the night, suddenly deciding to knead their feet on their master’s belly. But if you delve into the matter, we will find that many of the “strange” habits are not at all strange. These are echoes of instincts that in the wild save feline lives. For example, do you know why a cat is burying a bowl of food? If not, we will tell you about it!
Cats are great hunters. But even ideal predators have bad days. In the wild, cats do not always come back from hunting carrying prey in their teeth. Sometimes they come with nothing. For such cases, in order not to die of starvation, cats create reserves for themselves. After a successful hunt, they bury the remnants of food – so deep that other predators did not smell it.
