Increasing Your Cat’s Lifespan

With advancements in the science and technology of pet care, it seems that the average cat lifespan has seen an increase in recent years. We rejoice at this news and we welcome it. In fact, we have seen cats live well into their twenties.

This article presents a couple of things you can do to ensure that your cat can live a long and healthy life.

Buying Quality Cat Food

Proper nutrition is vital in terms of keeping your feline friend healthy. You need to ensure that their diet fits their particular needs. There are a number of factors to consider here: age, general health, weight, reproductive status, etc.

So before buying anything, make sure that you consult your vet so that they can make the proper recommendations.

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise

Aside from having the right diet, pet owners also need to ensure that their cats lead an active lifestyle. Interactive play is the best way to do this. You may not realize it but feline obesity can lead to serious consequences such as diabetes, skin disease, and heart disease to name a few.

These are just a few of the things you need to remember if you want your cat to have a long and happy life.

3 Things Responsible Cat Owners Should Do

Having a pet cat is no joke. It entails a lot of responsibilities on the part of the owner. You need to keep in mind that your pet’s life depends entirely on you. Your choices can affect whether or not your cat will live a healthy and happy life.

Exercise

Your pets need exercise as much as you do. When it comes to your cats, you simply cannot let them become overweight. Try your best to help them maintain their lean figure. Keep in mind that feline obesity can lead to more serious complications like heart disease, skin disease, respiratory disease, and diabetes.

Oral Care

Keeping your cat’s teeth clean is of vital importance. Unfortunately, this is one aspect of pet care that is often overlooked. Just like with people, cats can develop dental diseases that make it painful to eat.

Regular Visits to the Vet 

This should go without saying. To have a concrete idea of your cat’s health, you need to take them to see a vet regularly. No matter how observant you are, there is still a chance that you have completely missed the signs that your cat is sick.
