Create The Purrrrfect Home For Your Very First Cat | Collaboration [#AD]

Wednesday, 27 March 2019

Do you want to get a cat? You’ve certainly made a good choice! They are a relatively easy pet to care for as they won’t require quite as much attention as dogs do. You can simply leave your cat to do their own thing for most of the day, and it will also be happy to head outside whenever it needs to do its business. You won’t be required to take it for a couple of walks each day as you would a dog! However, you still need to be aware that bringing a cat into your home will still be a lot of responsibility. But don’t worry; it won’t be such a struggle if you read through this blog post. Here are the tips that all first-time cat owners will really benefit from.

Make Sure Getting A Cat Is The Right Thing For You

First things first - are you sure that getting a cat is the right thing for you to do right now? There are a few things you need to think about in order to make this decision. For instance, are you often away from home for long periods because of work or your personal travels? If so, getting a cat might not be a good idea as you won’t be around much to look after it. You also need to consider your current living situation. If you rent, you will need to check your contract as some landlords ban their tenants from getting pets.

Decide On An Indoor Or Outdoor Cat

If you are sure that getting a cat is right for you, you now need to decide on whether you want an indoor or outdoor cat. Some cats will need to be kept indoors at all times if they have a chronic health condition. If your cat is fit and healthy, it’s up to you whether you let them out or not. Some people let their cat outside so that it can do its business and can get exercise. However, some people, especially those who live in very busy areas, try to keep their cat in as much as possible. If you do want an indoor cat, you’ll need to invest in a litter tray and will need to change the litter quite often to keep it hygienic.

Buy Some Important Supplies

Don’t forget to buy important supplies, like a cat bed, food, and scratching post. You’ll be able to pick most of these up online at the Time for Paws site. It’s worth buying everything before your cat comes home with you so that you are all ready for its arrival.

Give Your Cat Time To Settle In

It might take your cat a few weeks to settle into their new home. So, be sure to be patient especially if it seems quite nervous around you at first. It will soon get used to you and you’ll be firm friends!

Hopefully, all of these great tips help you look after your very first cat!
