Ensure a preferred litter box for your cat by placing it in a quiet spot, scooping daily, cleaning weekly, and providing enough boxes for multiple cats.


Encourage the cat to use a litter box

Make the litter box a comfortable place.

Ensure a positive litter box experience for your cat: avoid startling them, use a large box, avoid sudden litter changes or heavily scented options.


Consider low-height boxes for kittens and cats with mobility issues. Ensure easy access or opt for adjustable litter boxes as needed.


Take young or old cats needs into consideration

Provide the cat with a scratching post

Scratching is a normal part of cat behavior, and there's no way you can train it out of them


Cats are curious, and will jump on counters or other places you'd like them to steer clear of


Discourage the cat from exploring forbidden surfaces

Consider using feline pheromone products

These products, which fill the air with calming synthetic pheromones, come as sprays or diffusers that plug into electrical outlets


Cat food comes in a vast array of types: dry food, semi-moist, and canned are the common types.


Decide what type of food to feed your cat

Choose a good brand of cat food

Meet your cat's nutritional needs with high-quality, protein-rich foods. Ensure essential amino acids and fatty acids, and consult your vet before offering human food.


In general, cats are fed according to age, weight and activity levels. They prefer to eat frequent, small meals throughout the day.


Follow your cat food's suggested feeding guid

Don't overfeed your cat.

Prioritize vet recommendations and exercise for your cat's health. Obesity increases risks of diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and other issues.


Regular brushing is essential for long-haired cats (several times a week) and short-haired cats (weekly) to reduce shedding and prevent hairballs. Use a fine metal comb for effective undercoat grooming.

Brush your cat depending on their coat needs
