If you have drape cords in your home, keep them away from your cats. The cats will start playing with the cords and they can easily wrap around their necks. This could hurt or kill them. Secure your cords so they are out of the way and out of sight.

 

Avoid being kept awake by your cat romping through the house at night. When you first get your kitten, establish a habit of putting it to bed in a comfortable crate with a nice bed, litter box, food and water at night. If you start this early, your cat will appreciate having its own safe, cozy room.

 

Cats are constantly grooming themselves, and this is why they rarely need a bath. If your cat gets into something particularly stinky, a bath will not hurt them. If your cat does not like water you might want to wear gloves so that you do not get scratched. You might also want to enlist the help of a friend or family member.

 

Lessen the chances of your cat becoming harmed or killed by spraying all electric cords with something to keep them from chewing it. Bitter apple is a good choice and can be found at most pet stores. If your cat happens to be a champion cord-chewer, you'll need to use cord covers to protect your cords. An inexpensive way to hide electrical cords is to thread them through used paper towel rolls. Personal electronic devices should be stored when not needed to keep their cords out of reach.

 

Keeping cats from a counter really can be tough. Cats like to climb on things and a counter can look very inviting. Provide your cat with a few high places it can uses. An excellent tool for preventing your cat from jumping on the counter is a cat tower that is in the kitchen.

 

Take your cat to the vet periodically. A lot of cat owners tend to avoid the vet because it can be harder to get a cat ready to go anywhere she does not want to go! It is also easy to avoid the vet because cats seem so self-reliant. However, it's smart to get your cat to the vet to avoid any problems.

 

If your cat has a tendency to eat your plants, you can stop him. You can either purchase bitter apple spray and spray the pot, or you can put a bit of clove oil on a cotton ball and bury it a bit in the soil. Your cat will avoid both.
