Summer is over and autumn is coming. I feel that autumn in Shanghai is very short. It will be winter in a flash. So, are cat owners ready to winter their cats? Here are a few questions about cat wintering. I hope it can be helpful for you. Some of them are personal opinions, which can be corrected!
Do cats need clothes in winter?
Many parents will prepare a lot of clothes for cats in winter, and LZ will do the same. However, according to experience, it is a bit unreliable for cats to wear clothes. Either they will not move when they put on their clothes, or they will tear them off directly. At most, they will wear clothes just to take some beautiful pictures. So I think that if you want to dress cats for the winter That’s a little hard! It’s better to make a warm nest for it!
What do cats eat in winter?
1. Increase the amount of protein and fat. Like chicken breast and barbed crucian carp.
2. Heat food. Try to eat less and more meals to keep the food fresh. In the cold winter, it is best to heat the food to a warm and palatable temperature and then feed it to the cat (about 40 degrees), which can reduce the risk of disease. ?
3. Ensure the supply of warm water. Although the amount of drinking water for cats in winter is less than that in summer festivals, drinking water is still very important for cats. Cats love to be clean. If there is dust floating on the water surface, or even its own hair, it will not drink it. We must pay attention to the cleanness of water. ?
Because of the cold weather in winter, the cat’s appetite will increase. At this time, it is necessary to control the feeding amount and increase the food appropriately. Don’t allow them to eat, sleep, and eat, which is not conducive to health. In winter, cats don’t like sports very much. They spend their daily life eating and sleeping. As a host, it is best to tease it to exercise for a certain period of time every day, so as to enhance the physique and prevent excessive fatness.
How does cat frostbite do?
If there is painful edema of the skin or subcutaneous tissue. After a few days, the pain will disappear. Although this kind of frostbite is uncomfortable, it is not serious, so it is not necessary to be afraid of it. It only needs to deal with the injury.
If the skin and subcutaneous tissue will appear large edema, and spread to the surrounding. Sometimes even there will be blisters, blisters rupture, the formation of ulcers, resulting in wounds can not heal for a long time. Even if the cat is seriously frostbitten, the cat will be very painful and at risk of infection. It is the safest way to take some simple treatment and send them to the hospital.
If the wound will lose consciousness due to cold and temperature loss, necrosis of the skin and subcutaneous tissue will occur, and large areas of edema will be generated around. Soon, gangrene can develop in the wound, causing slow healing and a high risk of suppurative infection. Such serious injuries are rare. However, if delayed, wound infection may even be life-threatening. Therefore, it is better to send them to the hospital immediately for emergency treatment.
How to depilate cats?
In winter, the hair loss of cats will be better than that in autumn, but because the time in the sun is less, it is easy to infect skin diseases. Cat parents can often use the comb to comb the dirt and scurf hidden in the skin, which can not only promote blood circulation, but also comb the cat’s discarded hair. In this way, not only can keep clean, eliminate the smell, but also can make the cat’s hair more bright, and keep the cat’s hair fluffy, do not knot, in order to really keep warm! Don’t forget to let the cat enjoy the rare sunbath in winter when there is sunshine, which is of great help to the skin and hair!
What about cats bathing?
Many cat parents are worried about the cat’s cold and don’t take a bath for the whole winter. In fact, helping the cat bathe in winter can promote blood circulation and boost the cat’s energy. It’s better to take a bath once a month or a month and a half. When taking a bath, you can choose to use warm water when the temperature is higher, and choose mild hair washing essence. After washing with warm water, dry it with hot air immediately to avoid cold wind and cold.
Finally, it is suggested to ensure the common health of human and cat in winter
It’s cold outside in winter, so many parents are used to closing the doors and windows tightly to keep warm. It’s fine. But you must open the window at intervals to change the air in the room. This is not only good for the cat, but also good for your own health!
And winter comes, cats and you sleep together is easy to endanger your health! In winter, the bed temperature is appropriate, not ventilated, will create a good living environment for bacteria. When you feel intimate with cats and cats, bacteria can come to your bedding, your underwear, and even your skin, causing harm to you. And the cat in the oxygen deficient environment (quilt) sleep, is also very harmful to itself.
I hope it will be helpful to all cat owners! I hope every cat can be healthy in winter. If you can help the stray cats outside, please extend your friendly hand!
