Cats are wonderful creatures. They tend to be friendly, playful, and funny. Plus, they are the perfect companion. However, there can be a lot to consider when taking your new cat home from the pet store or shelter. In this video, you will learn a few important tips.
One of the first things you should do is get your new cat scheduled to visit the veterinary. It is important that they have a checkup and get their cat vaccinations. Plus, the vet can give you advice on how to properly care for your cat.
Before taking the cat home, make sure to cat-proof the area. Cats are curious creatures and will get into anything or knock over anything that you don’t secure. Therefore, add child locks to doors that you don’t want the cat opening and remove any breakable objects from the room. Cats love to knock things over to see what happens.
You will also want to get a litterbox for your cat. If you happen to know what litter they are used to, use the same litter to make the transition into a new space easier for them. You could also buy some cat toys and a scratching post. Young cats especially love to play.
