How to make Persian cat have gorgeous hair

       Persian cats are known as the nobility of cats. In order to make their hair more gorgeous, many owners will try various ways, such as supplementing sufficient nutrition with food to make hair healthier, using hair protecting agent to make hair softer and brighter, etc. In fact, in the process of daily maintenance, the owner only needs to “touch and comb twice” to achieve the purpose of making Persian cat hair smoother and brighter. So what is “one touch, two combs”?

       As the name suggests, one touch is always touching the cat. Owners may be puzzled. Can touching cats make their hair beautiful? Touching the cat does not immediately let the owner see the effect of beautiful fur, which requires the owner to insist for a long time. Caressing the cat every day can not only satisfy the cat’s spirit, but also promote the cat’s metabolism. When the cat’s body is in a healthy state, the hair growing in this “fertile soil” will not be bad.

       Second comb refers to the owner needs to comb the cat regularly. Combing can help the cat to clear the body of the body does not fall dead hair, reduce the cat swallowing too much hair and produce hair ball. When combing, the owner can also observe whether the cat’s body has wounds or skin diseases. If the cat has a wound or suffers from skin disease, its hair will generally become dry or easy to fall off.

       For cats who don’t like to be stroked or groomed, the owner can make the cat adapt to the process step by step. In addition, when the cat has finished grooming, the owner can also give them some food reward. After a period of time, the cat will be happy to be touched and groomed by the owner. Adhere to the cat “one touch, two comb”, and then cooperate with the owner’s food tonic, cat’s hair will show a soft and smooth state.

       3¡¢ Three face types of Persian cat

       1. The primitive type, the long nose, is the most primitive Persian cat. It’s not much different from the Angora cat. You can check out photos of the earliest Persian cats. But modern people don’t think of them as Persian cats. There are two types of modern Persia.

       2. Doll face, also known as baby face. Jinjila (details) is a common face. The tip of the nose is not in line with the eyes. However, the upper edge of the nose and the lower edge of the eyes are usually in line.

       3. Peek face, also known as Jingba face. It’s the tip of the nose.

       Peke face is harmful to the health of cats, causing dyspnea and so on. Therefore, some associations advocate doll face Persian cat and boycott peke face Jingba face Persian cat. At the same time, Jingba faces are popular. Jingba face shape is the de facto standard of non jinjila Persian cats.

       Now, Jingba face jinjila Persian cat also appeared, which is usually the result of jinjila mixing with other Persian cats. The original cat owners did not like jinjila and other Persian cats. It seems to go with the loss of ginger’s green eyes.

       Note: some cat associations (CFA) list Persian cats with foreign short hair parents or ancestors as foreign long hair, while some cat associations (TICA, etc.) recognize that foreign long hair is Persian cat.

How does Persian cat have diarrhea

       Persian cats are known as the nobles of cats. They always have a pampered attitude towards their owners, as if the owners were not the masters, but to obey their ministers. Many owners said that the body of Persian cats seems to be as delicate as their personality. If they are not careful, there will be such and other problems. Clinically, diarrhea is the most common condition in Persian cats. If you want to do a good job in coping with the problem, the owner must understand why the Persian cat has diarrhea.

       1¡¢ Food problems

       1. Too much feeding

       Don’t think that the more cats eat, the better. Some cats always have a “come and go” attitude towards food. Their goal is to eat all the food in the bowl. If cats eat too much, they will also have stomach accumulation, mainly manifested as loss of appetite, anorexia, abdominal swelling and other symptoms, and some cats will even have temperature rise.

       Countermeasures: for cats who can’t control themselves well, the owner should not put too much food in the basin at one time, and it’s better not to use the automatic feeder, because when the cat feels like it’s going to stop, they’re actually quite up to it. If you need to go out for a whole day, you can put cat food in two bowls respectively, but do not put the two pots together. You can put one in the kitchen and the other in the corner of the living room. In this way, the cat will rarely have the problem of eating too much at once.

       2. The food is not fresh

       If cat food (especially wet food) is exposed to the air for a long time, it is likely to rot and deteriorate. Once eaten by cats, they will have diarrhea.

       Countermeasures: in order to ensure the freshness of food, the host should do a good job in food storage. Dry food should be placed in sealed bags or boxes, and canned cats that have not been eaten at one time should be sealed with plastic film and placed in the refrigerator. In addition, in the summer, the owner also needs to clean the garbage can in the kitchen in time, because the cat is easily attracted by the smell of food left in the garbage can. Because of the high temperature, the food will deteriorate in a short time, but the cats will not know about this, so they become a member of the diarrhea camp after eating a meal.

       3. Eating poisonous food

       Cats can swallow anything that they think is reasonable, even if there is something that we don’t think is even food, they can swallow it in one gulp. Doctors in pet hospitals can often encounter cats who eat poisonous food. For these cats, it is lucky that they only have diarrhea. Some cats will eventually die because the food they eat is too toxic or cannot be treated in time.

       Countermeasures: the general family will rarely appear toxic food, so the owner as long as the home may have toxic effects on the cat insecticides and other good can. In addition, lilies and other plants can also poison Persian cats, and owners need to put these plants out of the cat’s reach.

       The plants in the picture from left to right are Lily, Narcissus, evergreen, hyacinth, green pineapple and aloe. Cats will have diarrhea or allergy symptoms after eating them. Do not let the cat eat lily, Narcissus and evergreen plants, cats eat them is likely to die. If you want to raise some plants, you can choose Chlorophytum, Begonia and rosemary.

       4. The food is lack of some nutrients needed by cats

       For the owner who cooks for the cat, it is easy for the cat to lack nutrients in the food. Once the cat is lack of some vitamins or trace elements, they will not only have diarrhea, but also some cats will even eat different foods.

       Countermeasures: in fact, even if cats only eat cat food, they will not have any malnutrition, because the nutrients in cat food can fully meet the needs of cats. On the contrary, the owner who prepares food for the cat should do a good job in advance to ensure that the food contains enough nutrients for the cat. In addition, the owner had better not let the cat eat his own food on the table, which is a common topic, but in real life, there are still many people who will give their leftover food to the cat, which will lead to two problems: 1. The cat lacks some vitamins and trace elements, some cats will eat differently; 2. Due to the oil content of human food And salt content is high, cats will appear urinary system diseases.

       2¡¢ Disease problems

       1. Parasites in the gut

       The main intestinal parasites that Persian cats are susceptible to are Ascaris lumbricoides, tapeworms, hookworms, etc. cats infected with parasites may have no obvious symptoms for a long time, but after a long time, the cats will become thin, and some cats will eat differently. If a kitten is infected with parasites, it can also lead to stunting.

       Countermeasures: the owner must regularly repel the cat. Especially for semi free range cats, frequent going out makes them more susceptible to parasites, so deworming is one of the tasks every owner must do every year. For domestic cats, the owner should not be taken lightly, because your shoes may stick eggs and take them home. The cat may also be infected with parasites in the process of biting, but the possibility is low.

       2. Gastroenteritis

       There are many reasons for Persian cat gastroenteritis, such as eating food just taken out of the refrigerator, falling temperature and so on.

       Countermeasures: in the daily maintenance process of cats, we should pay attention to avoid eating cold food for cats, and do not let them drink ice water directly even in summer. When the temperature drops, it is necessary to keep the cat’s nest warm. If necessary, it is best to turn on the air conditioning or heating to ensure that the cat will not catch cold. In addition, if the cat’s diet is not regular, it will also lead to gastroenteritis, so the owner should regularly feed the cat, once the regularity is formed, it should not be changed easily.

       3. Cat plague

       Also known as cat infectious enteritis, cat pan leukopenia. Young cats infected with cat plague usually die suddenly without any symptoms; while adult cats have diarrhea, which means that they have entered the late stage of the disease, and some cats will die. In general, it is easy to cause diarrhea and vomiting before the cat is fed up.

       Countermeasures: for similar infectious diseases such as cat plague, owners can prevent them by vaccination. Usually, the cat should be vaccinated once a year. If it is bitten by other animals, you should take the cat to the pet hospital for a booster immunization.

       4. Inflammation of tumor or other organs

       When cats are suffering from diseases such as cancer, hepatitis or pancreatitis, they will have the condition of precursory diarrhea. Some cats will have persistent diarrhea, while others will have diarrhea every few days.

       Countermeasures: when the cat has persistent diarrhea for no reason or once every few days, the owner should immediately give the cat a comprehensive physical examination. If the cat is diagnosed with the disease, then early treatment will make the cat less suffering from the pain.

       5. Congenital defects

       Many cats lack the enzyme to break down lactose. When they drink milk or eat other dairy products, they will have diarrhea. In fact, it’s not just cats, some dogs also lack this enzyme, which is one of the reasons why veterinarians don’t recommend milk to cats or dogs.

       Countermeasures: if cats have diarrhea due to this reason, the owner can only pay more attention to diet, do not give them milk, and do not let them eat any form of dairy products. If the cat has not been weaned, the owner can buy a special milk powder for the kitten to drink.
