It is obvious that there are more and more stray cats in the wild. Many parents who are passionate about their love will choose to adopt stray cats back or send them to their relatives and friends. So if you’re new to raising stray cats, do you know how to raise them? In addition to cat food, cats can also occasionally eat fish, meat or animal liver, which can only put very little salt or no salt. Don’t give the cat leftovers. First, the nutrition is not enough. In addition, the salt content in the vegetables eaten by human beings is too much for cats and cats, which is easy to get sick. Cats and cats had better not take a bath frequently, usually once every two months, because there is grease on the cat’s fur, which can be waterproof and dustproof. If you take a bath often, this layer of grease will be washed off. On the contrary, cats are easy to get dirty. Moreover, due to dry skin, it is easy to cause skin diseases and parasites to invade. Cats more than 12 weeks old need to be regularly cleaned of parasites in and out of the body. For external parasites, you can use Simmons cat flea less than 25 yuan a bottle, 30 ml, not toxic, pregnant female cats can use, remember to buy cats, not to buy dogs, this medicine can remove fleas, ear mites and cattle ticks. However, there are fake products on the market, so you must buy them in regular pet shops. You can spray the cat’s whole body against the hair, and then massage it with your hands in the hair to let the drug penetrate evenly. Basically, there will be no fleas in two days. A bottle can be used many times. It works well, but it’s expensive and needs to be used up at once, so it’s not suitable for use at home. Don’t buy Miechongning. Although it looks cheap, it’s not cheap for a small bottle. Moreover, it’s toxic and can damage the cat’s skin and fester. Don’t give your cat a collar. The medicine in the collar is very toxic, and it won’t work after three months. The most important thing is that if your cat is free range, it must climb the tree. If the collar hooks the branch, it will be dangerous. To get rid of the parasites in the body, you can buy anlex deworming tablets produced by Xi’an YANGSEN for cats to eat. A box of six tablets is only about two yuan and six pieces. The dosage is twice a day, half a piece each time. If you eat it for three days, you will beat down the worms in your stomach. It can be used to treat the infection of Enterobius vermicularis, Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris duodenalis, Strongyloides faecalis and taeniasis. The worms can be excreted on the same day after eating, and the cat has no discomfort. Don’t take changchongqing, which has a big reaction and is mainly aimed at Ascaris lumbricoides. Tapeworms, Ascaris lumbricoides, pinworms and hookworms are common worms in cats. Repel the cat every three to four months. If you want to rest assured, even a cat bought from a pet store needs to be vaccinated, but in rare cases it will be dangerous due to the cat’s own immune system. Cat’s nest is very important, mainly depends on how you prepare to raise. If it’s free range, there will be more or less fleas on the cat. It is suggested to use cardboard boxes or plastic packing boxes with towel cushions inside. Then it’s OK to throw them away and change them. If cloth is used, flea eggs will easily parasitize inside, and cats will not be willing to enter. If it is domesticated, there is no flea problem. You can use cloth or velvet. Now you can choose cat food for young cats. When the cat is one year old, it can be changed into cat food. To give the kitten more dry food, wet food is easy to let the cat tooth decay or tooth stones, dry food can help to molars, teeth residual food clean. While eating dry food, always keep clean drinking water nearby. Generally, you can eat three to four meals a day. You can also put cat food and water on it. When the kitten is hungry, he will eat it. In addition, put the litter basin in a quiet corner. Cats don’t like to go to the toilet in a noisy environment.
At present, the majority of cat friends not only take good care of their cats, but also do some public welfare undertakings to help stray dogs and stray cats. They not only feed stray cats every day, but also sterilize them to prevent them from breeding and producing more stray cats. So how can we tell if stray cats have been rescued? Let’s learn about the ear markers of stray cats.
For the rescuers, seeing that the stray cat’s ears are labeled with ear marks, they will know that the cat has been sterilized and released. The rescuers do not have to capture the cat, but just feed it. If a stray cat that has been sterilized but does not have ear markers moves to another place, it is likely to be captured by other rescuers and sent to the hospital for another operation, especially the female cat, which has no obvious characteristics after sterilization, is likely to be operated repeatedly. So it’s very important to put ear markers on the sterilized cats. Ear tags are good for stray cats and rescuers.
For stray cats to do ear markers, usually in the cat sterilization surgery before the anesthetic does not wake up, at this time, the cat does not feel pain. Generally speaking, the ear mark of male cat is on the left ear, and that of female cat is on the right ear. Generally speaking, cat’s ear markers can be divided into clipping, tattooing, scalding and drilling.
1. Ear clipping: ear clipping is an internationally accepted method. This method is relatively safe because there are few vessels on the ear, and most of them are capillaries, and the amount of bleeding is very small. The specific operation is to subtract a section of the ear or cut a small triangle as the ear mark. This method is easy for doctors to operate and does not need special tools. The biggest advantage of this method is that the mark is obvious and easy to observe. The disadvantage is that it affects the beauty and may have some influence on the adoption. Animal hospitals and rescue organizations recommend this method when there is no professional ear marker tool.
2. Tattoo method: tattooing is to tattoo numbers or letters on the inner side of stray cat’s ears, which requires professional tools for operation. The advantages of this method are safe, easy to operate, and basically do not affect the beauty. It can also number the sterilized stray cats to distinguish the areas. If they are lost or captured by others, they can find the original breeding place by numbering. The disadvantage is that the tattoo is not very obvious and can only be seen after capture, and it is easy to disappear after a long time.
3. Scalding method: the doctor uses an electric iron to burn a mark inside the ear. This method has the advantages of low cost, simple operation and a few yuan for a small electric iron. The disadvantage is that it is not easy to control. If the scald is light, it may not be seen after recovery. The ear will be deformed if it is too hot. It may take a long time to recover, and it will affect the appearance. Generally speaking, this method is not recommended.
4. Drilling method: the hole drilling method is to make a hole in the ear with the ear mark pliers. The advantages are obvious mark and simple operation. The disadvantage is that it is not safe, because stray cats live in the wild, fight with each other, or cut easily when looking for food, which also affects the beauty. Generally speaking, it is not recommended. However, this method can be combined with the first method. A semicircular notch is made at the edge of the ear with ear marker forceps, which is safer and easier to distinguish.
At present, in some cities and organizations with advanced assistance for stray animals, it is very common to give ear labels to the sterilized stray cats. However, for some newly started cities and rescue groups, it may not have thought of or done this. However, it is very important to give ear markers to the sterilized stray cats. I hope every rescuer and rescue group can make ear markers Can take it seriously.
At present, many pet cats are kept at home and do not go out at all. Many owners will think that this is not good for the cat, but when they go out, the cat will be infected with disease or unwilling to go home. In this case, how can the owner take the cat out to play?
1¡¢ Cats are by nature free
Cats and humans have lived for thousands of years, and their nature has changed a lot. Just like dogs and wolves, we know that dogs and wolves are distant relatives, but dogs are not equal to wolves. Does the cat need to satisfy his habits and let him go out to receive the stimulation of the environment?
If the owner can provide a large and safe space, and can pay attention to the cat’s movement at any time, then why not let the cat slip away occasionally? But ask the owner to ask himself, can we really stare at the cat 24 hours a day? Don’t you worry about the danger of a cat sneaking out? Is it really good to let the cat run around freely?
2¡¢ It is the owner’s responsibility to give the cat a safe and secure environment and life
Stimulating cats is certainly the way to prevent some diseases, but it is not the only way. If the owner can be prepared to walk the cat, and can really prevent the cat from sneaking out when the owner is not paying attention, then the cat walking itself is a beautiful thing. If there is no way to really monitor the cat’s every move, then please slow down. To stimulate the cat, in addition to walking the cat, the use of a cat stick is also a good way to set up a cat stand or cat ladder at home, so that the cat can walk around the house also has the effect.
3¡¢ The wild nature of stray cats is hard to change
More attention should be paid to the owners who adopt stray cats. Because the cats have been wandering for a long time, they have a stronger understanding of the territory than domestic cats, and they often want to run out. The owner must pay more attention and patience, let the cat get used to the life at home, and do a good job to prevent the cat from leaving home. Sometimes the cat’s vigilance will last for months or even years. It is the biggest responsibility of the owner to protect the cat and make the cat live a healthy and safe life.
