About British kittens: British short hair is very afraid of going out. Many breeders seldom let their cats go out to bask in the sun, but cats still need some sunshine. If you bask in the sun through the window, you should pay attention to the glass that will block UVB. You can put pet UVB lights in the cat’s resting place. It’s not necessary, but it’s good for cats.
British short hair every month to take a bath or two on the line, after washing must blow dry, otherwise it is easy to catch a cold. Don’t always feed your favorite snacks. Feed them every time you take a bath, so that it knows that there will be rewards for bathing. More lazy owners can sometimes use that kind of water free bath gel to clean the cat. When you take a bath, comb it down slowly with a comb. After blowing it dry, you can put some hair nutrition powder on it. In addition, you can feed some snacks to help your hair. Your short English hair will be more soft and glossy, and you will lose a lot less hair.
Owners of cats should pay attention to their own hygiene and wash their hands after playing with cats. Especially after the disposal of litter must wash hands, there are a lot of bacteria. ***And pregnant women and less contact with cats, not can not raise. Cats had better not let it go to bed, to keep a good cat living environment health. There is a spray that keeps cats away from what you have sprayed, and helps cats catch furniture. Don’t cover it with nails. It’s cat abuse.
When cats are young, they should be fed more. Two cans a day will be fine. As the cats grow up, the cat food should be changed from juvenile food to adult cat food. Cat food can not be changed directly. The digestive system of cats is not good. The amount should be increased by 7:1 every day until the best week. Many habits of a cat are useful only from childhood training. For example, every time it does something right, it should reward the cat with snacks, criticize it immediately after doing something wrong, pay attention to criticize it immediately, pat it gently on its forehead with two fingers, and even drink and scold it, so that it will understand that it is doing wrong. Cats need to change their environment less. The new environment has a great impact on British short, such as hair loss and hunger strike. Don’t take your cat around with you. It can’t stand the twists and turns.
Always pay attention to whether your cat is abnormal. If the cat doesn’t eat or has bad appetite, the owner should be alert. Cats with dry nose and wet eyes are also bad symptoms. Laxity or insects should be administered immediately. As the cat gets older, feeding should also be reduced, and as the cat grows older, we should pay attention to supplement nutrition such as bone for the cat.
All kinds of cat food can a little expensive, what other way? Homemade cat food is not only affordable, but also rich in nutrition. Mince the chicken breast or other meat, mince the internal organs (cats eat them) and mix them together. Prepare a bowl of egg white, which with calcium tablets, vitamins, fish oil and other nutrients (I can find on the Internet, I will not elaborate) and then mix it with the meat. Use food sealed bags or sealed boxes to put homemade cat food in the refrigerator. However, homemade cat food must also be matched with dry food, and the owner of homemade cat food should pay more attention to the oral hygiene and digestion of the cat.
