Cat Care
by Cleo & Brad Conrad

Cat owners must be aware of in-home danger spots. The following tips give owners an understanding of what to look out for, as well as the essentials for responsible pet care:

Securely store hazardous material (sharp objects, insecticides, poisons, moth balls, medications, plastic bags and cleaning supplies). Antifreeze, chocolate, aspirin-type products and some common house plants are toxic to cats.

Cats should wear an ID tag and a small bell on their break-away collars at all times.

Keep toilet lids down.

Keep electrical cords short or tacked down.

Never leave a lit stove unattended.

Secure all window screens.

Keep drawers, trunks and closet doors closed.

Check before closing appliance doors (especially clothes dryers).

Cat owners need to purchase at least one litter box per cat, cat litter and a scoop. Litter boxes should be cleaned every day, and be placed in a low-traffic area.

Cats require complete and balanced cat food and fresh clean water every day.

A clean bed, scratching post and cat-safe toys are also recommended for a cat's well being.

Cats should be groomed often and checked for lumps, rashes, or any unusual skin conditions. Clip cats' nails regularly.

Maintain a program of regular veterinary care for annual shots and check-ups.
